5 Minute Meditation

Sit on a chair with your feet solidly resting on the floor or earth and your spine comfortably upright. Bring your attention to the soles of your feet, noticing the sensation of gentle contact with the floor.

Consider that for thousands of years, your ancestors have walked in close contact with the earth, often barefoot, and earth wisdom has been passed along to you in your genetic makeup. Imagine now that your feet have energetic roots, like the fine root system of a tree. Let your sole roots reach down into the rich, nourishing earth.

Feel the nourishment rising through your roots into your legs, torso, arms and head, like the sap rising up the trunk of a tree. Rest in the earth's dynamic stability. Be nourished by the deep silence. Be at home in the support.
