Spiritual Preparation

Find a place where you can be quiet with your thoughts. Close your eyes and breathe deeply for several minutes, perhaps repeating a word or phrase to separate yourself from the activities of the day. When you feel settled and relaxed, consider:

  • In what ways, metaphorically and literally, does the earth connect you to other life, in the human and non-human world?
  • What helps you feel grounded? What undergirds your sense of self?
  • Where in nature do you experience the sacred?
  • What sources of your own power are you most aware of at this moment?
