 Our Meditative Movement™ Story

A black/white man/woman standing on the earth with roots going into the ground and branches growing towards the sun and moon. Owl, cardinal, butterflies.

Over 40 years ago, I received the I Can Meditative Movement™ from the Source of all our inspirations. As I walked about the lake, I would repeat the "I can" affirmation often with tears streaming down my face. After all, I was suffering so much. When I was 23 years old, I was divorced and raising three small children on my own while making $80 a week as "Ellie from the deli." My body was unhealthy; my mind was chaotic, and my spiritual being was weighed down with fear, self-pity, anger, and worthlessness. The movements gave me a way to release harmful energies while strengthening nurturing ones.

Because I was experiencing so many positive changes in my life, like feeling worthy, quitting smoking, and being assertive, I wanted to share the movements with others. When I attended the College of St. Catherine in 1987, my business dream was put onto paper. My college marketing class projects focused on how I would communicate this newly created technique to others. Now it is so much fun to have this artwork depicting what Meditative Movements can be in your life. For me I feel a connection to all of life. This piece was done in collaboration with Christina Plichta (Illustrator / Artist).

What stirs in you as you view it? One woman stated that she had a visceral reaction. Are your stories coming alive within you? What wants to be acknowledged, heard, and possibly healed?

 I Breathe Meditative Movement™

Breath . . .our gift of life. If you have had the awesome opportunity to be a part of the birthing or dying process, you know that the breath brings the body to life and what finally leaves when death occurs. When I am reminded of these two miracles of life, I pause. Sometimes I am afraid because I cannot control how this works. Other times, I marvel at this gift and am okay with life's mystery.

George Floyd, a black man from my hometown, uttered the words, "I can't breathe" as a white police officer's knee was on his neck. As I write this, I pause again and take a breath. It is hard for me to comprehend. Conscious breathing is a way to keep me centered and in the moment. My heart wants to be open as my mind and body fight to understand many of the happenings in our world.

 me and white supremacy by Layla Saad

Me & White Supremacy by Layla SaadThank you Centers for Spiritual Living for offering an online five week book discussion on me and white supremacy by Layla Saad. Each week I was able to come together with other white people to discuss my daily journaling responses.

Layla did a great job defining terms like white fragility and savorism so I could understand my underlying unconscious beliefs.

She asks you to take a look at how the system of racism has been perpetuated by white people who choose not to educate themselves and explore their own prejudices.

Many of my past traumas and fears have been surfacing. While uncomfortable, I know that this is valuable work for me to do.

I invite you to open your heart and mind and see what you find.
