Mornings are the toughest. Mornings are when I feel anxious and uncertain and bumfumbled by the world. I miss people and I want to stay safe. I want to connect and the connections I make feel not enough. I want to be brave and I have no idea what that looks like.

Buddhist teacher Karen Maezen Miller wrote recently:

We’re all trying to reach out these days even though we can’t really reach out. … If you’re sitting at home like I am, wondering what you are supposed to give to a world ravaged by pain and terror, just give yourself. That’s the most beautiful thing.

That’s what today’s Dancing Water Daily Dharma Dance practice is about: is about feeling underneath the layers of expectation, fear, insecurity to get to ourselves and then move from there. Find the video here.

Help me to continue to create Dancing Water Daily practices! No matter how far apart we are physically, we are all connected. The path that we all move along together is held by an Invisible Net of Love that is always there even if we can’t see it. The Dancing Water Daily practices is my thread in that net. Please support my work by offering a donation so I can keep creating these practices for you. With your generous support, I can continue to invest in making these classes available to anyone who can benefit. Please click here to be part of the Dancing Water Daily Net of Love. And please “Send to a Friend” to avoid PayPal fees! Suggested donation: $5 a class or $15 a week ~ and truly, any amount helps enormously.

Shout outs to this week’s generous donors Pam Beard and Marion Robbins! A thousand thanks, friends! Together we can extend this Net of Love to reach everyone who needs it.

AND if, like me, your finances are akimbo, I get it. Another way to help is to share these video practices. Send a link to a friend! Post it on social media! Help spread the word about nourishing movement and moving together apart.
