How stillness transforms and expands


Written by

There is something terrifying about stillness.
I sit in a women’s spirit circle (many moons ago–at First United Church), and we are guided in meditation, we are guided in stillness, we are invited to “go within and listen to our hearts”.


As a child, I remember my dad pointing up to the dark night sky. “See that, it’s Orion’s Belt. And just over there is The Big Dipper”.

“Here comes the sun little darling… and it’s all right.” The sun has arrived my friends and our over-saturated rain soaked bodies and saturated lands can now have some breathing space.

It is the end of June and my body and mind feel like it is still in February. What a wild crazy fast and furious ride this past six months has been.
