Earth Day turns 50 this year. And what a strange Earth Day this will be: air quality has drastically improved, but at great cost to human life and economies. Seismologists are marveling at the readings they’re getting, with the world being so quiet. The wild creatures are getting bold… or comfortable.
Each April 22nd, I offer a guided Earth Day meditation. This year I’m posting it online. My hope is that this meditation–or your personal adaption of it–helps deepen your connection with our beautiful planet, with the landscapes that you love, and with your own earth: the sacred body that comes along with you, everywhere you go.
Much gratitude to:
