Bailing the Boat: A Mindful Detox Day
Saturday, August 15, 2020
Meditation can serve many functions.
It can help with stress management.
It can support psychological growth.
It can create a safe harbor in stormy seas.
It can mitigate the pandemic trance of unworthiness.
It can increase clarity and stability of mind. It can deepen the well of compassion.
During exceptional times of extreme chaos in the world, as in now, when anxiety and uncertainty take center stage, meditation can serve a detoxifying function, without which we can feel decentered, overwhelmed, fraying at the edges.
This day of practice will not emphasize deep states of calm or transformative insight. Instead we will focus on simple practices to release accumulated patterns of tension in body, breath, heart- mind and replenish the heart with good food.
Periods of sitting meditation will be interspersed with standing, walking, mindfulness of the body exercises and mindful speaking and listening.
Sitting alone together can strengthen resolve, help us to feel HELD internally and externally in a holding environment of good company, and offer a sense of connection to like-minded others.
