I offer this to you, whomever may want or need it at this time, for a small effort toward healing, calm, inner knowledge, contentment and contemplation during this crisis we are calling Covid-19. A journey within, a time to further explore your own soul, a time for quiet and perhaps even rest.
There’s a kind of work that I do and recommend to others that I call Tree Work.
Daily Tree Practice: Sit quietly and visualize yourself as a tree. Visualize your roots going deep into the soil, into the Earth. Visualize yourself grounded and rooted–nourished by the Earth. Visualize your branches as reaching out all around you and to the sky, taking in nutrients, perspectives, beauty, rain, sunlight, sounds, the breeze, the footsteps of birds, animals and children in your branches. Visualize yourself as one with all the rest of the Earth, not separate or apart, but rather a part of.
