Meditation and spring

This morning I found a little ezine article that offers thirty ways of letting spring-time opportunities help us with mindfulness practice. Here are a few that particularly appeal to me:

- have a picnic by yourself
- look at the many different shades of green that emerge from the trees
- practice yoga outdoors
- go outdoors and listen to the sounds of the birds
- don't make any plans for the day and have a retreat at home, making each action and interaction a meditation

And there are more.


  1. On Easter Sunday I went to a Quaker meeting in the morning to celebrate Easter. The meeting house is bordered by a forest and it was a beautiful sunny day. Only two people spoke during the meeting, not for long. For the rest of the time it was silence apart from the sunshine pouring through the windows along with glorious May birdsong from the forest. The birdsong seemed to me the best "Christ is risen" there could possibly be.

  2. Oh, I think I envy you the Quaker Easter! How lovely.
