Mindful Moment: Layers of Connection
Thich Nhat Hanh says, "We inter-are." We exist, not alone, but interwoven with other beings— working with each other, supporting each other, complementing and contrasting with each other.
When we take time to consider this, it can be astounding to recognize all of the links that connect us.
Who are the people in your circles? Who do you belong to? Who do you associate with? How are you connected in this world? When you reflect on connection, what thoughts and emotions arise? Comment and tell us about it!
(We're planning an extra-special retreat on interconnection! Join us!)
"Mindful Moments" is a series that Marianne and Katie developed as "micro-practices" with the intention of offering inspirations to pause, notice, connect, and reflect in the course of daily life. These are suggestions of ways to fold more moments of mindfulness into your day to cultivate "Being Aware & Being Kind."
If you'd like to have these in physical form, we've also made these photos into a desk set-- a deck of 31 cards, in a little bag along with an easel. You can take a look here.
