Be well,

Let me share this beautiful poem that encourages us to slow down and tune in…..

Right Here

Stop moving. Stand in
one place – this place.
Breathe slowly; in, then out. Repeat.

Repeat again. Let your
shoulders sink and relax. Unclench
your jaw; slowly close your eyes.

Listen for your heartbeat; really
listen. Feel it pulse in
your fingertips.

Lessen expectations. Under-do all your
efforts. Requisition the time
for your soul

to catch up. Lean
into the wind; feel it
like a tree and test the ground.

Learn to trust the resilience.
It would be treason
to move quickly – left or right –

from this place. It is alright to be exactly
what you are, who you are, where you are.
Right here, right now.

Open Floor

5 Rhythms®

Self Compassion

With self-compassion we treat ourselves with kindness, care, understanding and support – Mindfulness allows us to turn toward painful feelings and “be” with them as they are.
