The Breath of Flowers is Sweeter in the Air

During our time together we'll reflect on the impact this first year of Covid-time has has had on the way we've lived the lives we have as opposed to the one we hoped would be. That's the end of Sir Francis Bacon's quote: “The breath of flowers is sweeter in the air than in the hand.”

You'll talk to each other about practices that helped you make it through a year when everything was turned upside down, and nothing was the way you expected it to be. We'll look at labyrinth walking as a resource that allows our intuitive and creative selves to find their ground so we can smell a flower's sweet breath. We'll practice a form of labyrinth walking during the session and reflect on our experience.    

In this Coffee Break you will:
  • Spend time reflecting. 
  • Talk about practices that helped us remember to smell the flowers. 
  • Consider solutions to the challenges that occur when we find ourselves thinking about what we're missing instead of being present to what we have.
  • Look at labyrinth walking as a resource that allows our intuitive and creative selves to remember what's important. 
  • Spend time "walking" a labyrinth (finger or otherwise).
