Enveloping ourselves in the rhythms and forms of nature can be transformative and healing. Ayurveda, the ancient healing tradition of India, recommends spending time in nature each day.
Doing so allows us to experience the wonderment of this existence with all our senses.
Nature allows us to shift our attention beyond the domain of our ego and to recognize that we are inextricably connected to the universe.
If you’re unable to go outside, find a position of comfort, close your eyes, and consciously visualize walking in a natural setting.
How much detail can you bring to the experience?
Can you visualize yourself healing or healed?
How slowly can you take in your surroundings to most fully appreciate everything in your environment?
You may want to try a walking meditation, moving as mindfully as possible, with no thought of a destination or goal . . . just walking and paying attention to the world within and the world without.
