Follow Nature and Be the Bloom

Meditation on Nature

The last Friday of every month I share a video meditation on nature. I ask you to sit back, relax, and take deep breaths. Let you mind focus on this one thing for forty seconds.


What Meditation On Nature Did For Me 

Once upon a time, I thought multi-tasking was a good skill. I bragged about my ability to multi-task. Once (this is embarrassing) I drove down the New York Thruway while eating lunch and typing emails on my laptop.

Taking time for meditation on nature? Wasteful. Unproductive. Frivolous. I needed to get stuff done?

After years of being SO productive and SO busy, and getting SO many things done, I crashed and burned in the months after my dad died. That’s one reason I now do what I do.

I help people release old patterns that don’t work for them, and discover new habits that generate wholeness, peace, and vibrant energy.

Burnout Recovery

Hiking the trails in nature preserves around my home in middle Tennessee, and soaring the swooping roads of the Natchez Trace on my bicycle were critical for my burnout recovery. Hiking and biking in Colorado kept me sane during the rough early year of our recent pandemic.

Now I love meditation on nature. Medical evidence shows it improves our mood and mental health. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/pmc3393816/ Time spent in nature strengthens the immune system. That seems like a good thing in a world still struggling with a wiley virus.

Who knows your good stories?

With the holidays coming up there will be a plethora of opportunities to tell stories, at least if your family is like mine. This year, give some thought to the kind of stories you tell.
