Hugging Meditation

Hugging Meditation

1. Begin by taking a few moments to look at the other person and realize how dear they are to you.

2. Take three breaths, just looking at the other person and feeling their true presence.

3. As you open your arms to hug the other person, breathe consciously and hug with all your body, mind and heart. “Breathing in, I know my dear one is here in my arms, alive. Breathing out, s/he is so precious to me.”

from Thich Nhat Hanh’s introduction to Beginning Anew¬†by Sister Chan Khong

A mind filled with love can be likened to the sky with a variety of clouds moving through it….some light and fluffy, other ominous and threatening. No matter the situation, the sky is not affected by the clouds. It is free. Sharon Salzburg

“Franciscan prayer is not an escape from the world  but an entrance into it. We become conscious in prayer of how much the world is with us and we are in the world.”  –Ilia Delio, Franciscan Prayer
