I found a temple among a forest of temples. For me, nature is a spiritual place. I have always found such comfort and guidance in the more than human world. It is my temple, my holy place, and my healing place. And it brings me so much happiness to be able to share it with others, in whichever way they accept it. 🙏🏼

I was in heaven this weekend surrounded by Ponderosa Pine forests. As I wandered through, every once in awhile I'd grab a tree and inhale deeply. The bark of Ponderosas smell just like butterscotch! Give it a try sometime - it's delicious!

There's nothing quite like happening upon a quiet meadow amidst a tall, thick evergreen forest. The expanse of soft grass surrounded by a circle of protective trees is like a little slice of paradise. Next time you come across one, I encourage you to sit down or lay on your back and simply bathe in its beauty, breathing it all in. Let your mind and body relax into the moment.

How I Go Into The Woods
.
Ordinarily, I go to the woods alone, with not a single
friend, for they are all smilers and talkers and therefore
unsuitable.
.
I don’t really want to be witnessed talking to the catbirds
or hugging the old black oak tree. I have my way of
praying, as you no doubt have yours.
.
Besides, when I am alone I can become invisible. I can sit
on the top of a dune as motionless as an uprise of weeds,
until the foxes run by unconcerned. I can hear the almost
unhearable sound of the roses singing.
.
If you have ever gone to the woods with me, I must love
you very much.”
.
-Mary Oliver .

I absolutely love coming across an unexpected bridge along a trail. Maybe it's the excitement of balancing on a precarious log over a rushing creek, or maybe it's the power of pondering the bridge as a symbol in my life. Probably it's both.
Bridges can represent various things at all stages of life. A bridge can be a connector of places or stages, or a transition from one phase to the next, or even a safe path to overcome obstacles. Bridges can represent hope, too. Maybe a new milestone is reached once you finally cross to the other side.
If you come across a bridge on your journeys, I invite you to ponder what might be the 'bridge of your life' at that moment. Notice how you feel as you cross that bridge. Sit with it for as long as you need.

It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade. - Charles Dickens, Great Expectations

Nature connection practice at home: bring plant friends into your space! They not only purify the air you breathe, but also help reduce stress & anxiety while boosting your attention span. .
Also, having plants surround you in this way creates accessible opportunities for connection. Get to know your plants - what do they like? (lots of water?) what don't they? (too much sun?). Every being is different and has unique needs. Simply tending to them will build a relationship that nourishes both you and your plant. .
PS- if you do this at your desk at work (creating a space filled with beautiful, healthy plants) I guarantee your coworkers will subconsciously gravitate to your area (plants encourage human connection too!). Although, maybe you don't want your coworkers at your desk all the time? Proceed with caution 😆

I am struck by the single tree on the left. How she seems so thin and young, yet supports the two fallen trees that lean on her. She surprised me.
.
I am inspired to be like this tree. To know that I am strong enough, even if it doesn't seem that way sometimes. If we stand in our internal strength, we just might surprise ourselves too.

There is this leaf. I've noticed it the past few times at sit spot. It is attached to a quiet, bare tree. Today as I watched it, flailing and struggling in the wind, whipping back-and-forth erratically, I thought, "just let go."
.
(JUST LET GO)
.
It appears as if it is struggling. Being wind beaten while still attached to a branch that it should have let go of a long time ago.
.
(JUST LET GO)
.
I wonder - why might it resist the letting go? Is there a perceived benefit that it thinks it still needs? The tree itself is in a dormant phase, not giving much anyway. And yet the leaf stays.
.
(JUST LET GO)
.
How much easier it seems to me, as a passive observer, for this little leaf to simply let go. To fall, to fly, to land - wherever that may be, for the next step in its journey. The next phase of life. But, I am not this little leaf, so I cannot know for sure. Simply guesses and lessons. Empathy and love.♡

I invite you to simply sit with the snow. .
Observe its behavior. .
Touch it with your bare skin. .
Notice... does it have a scent? .
Maybe let some flakes melt on your tongue. .
Is there a taste or sensation? .
Consider asking the snow what it can teach you. .
Then... be still. Listen.
