An Experiment

What is energy? How do we define it? These were the questions our Expanding Inward team were considering on a recent planning call. We didn’t end that call with a definitive answer but something Wren shared has had me thinking ever since. Energy is vibration. Each of our cells has their own vibration. Different vibrations […]

Perspectives

In the summer of 2002 I attended Tarot Week at Diana’s Grove. Early in the week each person drew a major arcana card to embody for the week. I drew the Hanged One. I was a tarot novice, (still mostly am actually) and the prospect was pretty daunting but I was working towards earning my […]

Find the thing

It’s an interesting time in my world. Sitting down to write I find I don’t have a whole lot of words. I’m mostly intrigued by the new connections happening between my mind, body and spirit. I started practicing Qi Gong on my own via YouTube about 3 weeks ago. I’m doing 20 minutes every morning […]

A new tool

I feel like I have been walking around in a constant state of energetic agitation for a long time now. Even though I have a regular sitting practice and for the most part stay pretty grounded, I’m aware it is taking more of my energy to maintain. To that end I am always open to […]

Crossroads don’t all look alike

There is something magical about the light and shadow in a tree canopy. Both draw me in. Both say “pay attention”. Notice. I can feel a pull, almost like gravity, except this pull is up, not down. I notice this primarily at sunrise and sunset. During the time between sunrise and sunset, if I walk […]
