Last night brought a nourishing experience for mind, body, and spirit. At the beautiful home www.namestoyfarm.com of a most loving friend, I and many others listened to a lesson from Tonzin Lama Sherpa, a Tibetan Buddhist Monk, who is staying with my friend through the month of June. We welcomed the presence of silence as an expression of reverence for all; and I relished the hugs from friends I had not seen in a long while. Speaking softly with love and compassion, Tonzin finished his lesson as the sun was setting.
We then prepared for a 31 minute sound healing meditation lead by Gongmaster Yogiray Kessler. We were bathed in wave after wave of gentle to vibrant sounds from large gongs and other percussion instruments. It was not only a meditation for the mind, but an absorbing physical meditation as the waves of sound washed through our bodies and left us totally relaxed. We had smiles on our faces as we each left for home.
How have you nourished yourself lately? Your sharing could give someone the exact spark they need to create nourishing experiences for themselves. Yesterday afternoon I sat in my backyard swing and loved the wind, sunshine, and moving shadows under the old dogwood trees. I know that was also a most nourishing experience!
