At yesterday’s drop in meditation, I addressed a favorite topic of mine, connection. Connection is a crucial part of our existence as human beings. We all find connection with different people and experiences in our own unique ways. Dr. Kasberg shared with me recently how walking through the public garden every morning on the way to Tufts sets his day and mentioned to me that right now the garden is spectacularly beautiful with tulips and new buds. Taking a pause for even just a moment in the day to notice the beauty around us is great way to connect with life. Meditation can be a walk through the public garden or taking a deep conscious inhale and a long slow exhale and both can be simple ways to refresh your mind and body. Meditation can be a formal activity for some, but for others it can be a walk in the public garden. Whatever the activity that calls attention, deliberate stillness and awareness is a way to connect with the moment at hand and to life within us and around us.


“When people go within and connect with themselves, they realize they are connected to the universe and they are connected to all living things.” -Armand Dimele




Join me next Thursday, May 5th at 12:30pm in the Becker Board Room for 15 minutes of connection to breath, yourself and to being.
Have a great weekend and maybe take a walk through our beautiful public garden! 🙂
