Last week, I published this piece and ever since can’t help but continually think about taking a sacred pause. Through my day of living in a city of 8.6 million, being packed like a sardine each time I use the subway to migrate around the city, and never quite having a “quiet moment” I seem to be craving it more than ever. Instead of trying to squeeze an hour of meditation into my already 25-hour day I want to cultivate a soft extension of that sacred pause. A way to experience a gentle pause, in snatches, throughout the day.
A few bits to help you create a sacred pause in your day:
clear your home’s energy.
a calming scent for a mid-day escape.
a soft place to land.
the gentle chime of a mediation’s end.
fill your home with tranquil bergamot.
a moment to yourself at the end of the day.
