My newest ecourse HERE has been my favorite part of this summer. The August session just began and there’s still time to come along.
A peek into why I created this course:
The last year has been a tough one for me. Last summer, I experienced deep anxiety for the first time, my family has had some struggles, there’s been the grief of illness and death and uncertainty, and then there’s the news and all that is happening in the world. Yet, there have been beautiful moments of deep joy, laughter, hope, love, and connection. Through it all, my practices have helped me show up and notice the beauty while honoring the truth of each day. And one of these practice is making #alistofhere in my journals and sometimes sharing here on Instagram. Making these lists has become like a written meditation that grounds me and shines a light on where I’ve been and where I am. They tether me to what I know to be true. They help me create space to notice and practice mindfulness but in an active, deeply supportive, and creative way. In the July session we explored from the starting point of Mary Oliver’s step one of “Instructions for living a life” when she tells us to “pay attention.” In the August session, we’re looking at step two: be astonished.
