Mindfulness Activity #190
Good Morning. Today is an absolutely beautiful fall morning. So, I thought a practice that involves nature would be fitting. You can simply get outside and walk, listening to leaves underfoot, breathing in the smells, and takin gin the colors. Or, you might try to use the practice of viewing a mandala made of leaves for fall. If you are feeling very creative, hunt and gather and create your own fall mandala.
The word mandala means “circle” in Sanskrit. The circles is a powerful symbol found in every culture. The mandala symbolizes continuity and change at the same time. You can look at small parts of a mandala or take in the whole image. When you are ready, sit near your mandala (or computer) and breathe deeply while takin git in. Try no focus on nothing but the experience and your breath. Do this for as long as you like.
Wishing you peace today…
