Take time before the session and find a quiet place for reflection. How long has it been since you were a baby, cradled in a parent's arms? Each of us holds that beginning within us. Bring to mind some of the people around you. Imagine the baby and child that they used to be. Find that place in your heart where you hold babies, both those who are babies now and those who have grown up. Is it pure love?
Take a moment to celebrate all of the skills and lessons you have learned since you were a baby, from rolling over and crawling to going to school, building and sustaining relationships, and nurturing others. Life is a great, grand cycle of which we are a part.
