March Practices

March Suggested Practice

March is the time of new beginnings.

The Vernal Equinox–the first day of Spring–marks the beginning of more sunlight than darkness for those of us who live in the Northern Hemisphere. What are you growing? What new life do you see emerging at this time? Are you making room for and cultivating something new in your life? Possibilities abound during this time as new life emerges from the seeds of winter.

Suggested practice for cultivating and nurturing the buds of your new life:

Spend 7 minutes each morning facing the sunrise and breathing deeply into your belly.

As you breathe in, take in the fresh dawn light deep into your belly.

Hold it for just a moment, allowing the dawn light fill your whole being.

As you slowly exhale, exhale gratitude for the light that gives life, knowing that this light is nurturing your life.
