As The Wind Blows

By Kevin Alexander, CCSS Collective Member

The wind softly tickled our cold cheeks as we strapped snowshoes to our feet and headed out on our much anticipated winter adventure. Brother Jason, sister-in-law Kelly and myself had been planning this winter day trip for a few months. I live in the north and invited these two flat-landers from the big city to join me on a rustic trek. 8 kilometers through forest, lakes and train tracks in search of some snow magic. All dressed, lunches packed, price tags taken off the new snow shoes, off we went.

It did not take long for the fun to begin. Carving faces in the snow drifts, climbing fallen trees, taking breaks for drinks of water and listening to the birds. Soon the sweat started to challenge our layers of clothing, zippers got pulled down, and breathing was heavier, bellies getting hungry.



Home Practice

Either alone or with others, find a space in nature. A place that is safe but adventurous. Enter that space while saying to yourself “I am sorry. Please forgive me. I Love You. I Thank You”.

Say this over and over again, in your head, in your heart, out loud. Write it on the ground with a stick, sing it. Rest with these words and allow yourself to go wherever they go.

I Am Sorry
Please Forgive Me
I Love You
I Thank You
