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:
- Where are your own personal "growing edges"?
- What nourishes you spiritually? What nourishes you literally?
- In what ways does a connection with the earth promote your growth?
- How do you promote growth in your communities?
