Vertical time is a well of appreciation we can learn to drink from. We slip down, between our worries, and we reset. We return to our work refreshed. What begins as an exercise we do in stillness, becomes, over time (there's that word again) something we learn to taste in all our moments. At least, that's the direction, the practice, the training. This Monday, we go vertical.

In the practice we will start with body awareness, just being present to the inner feelings, what's existing in the moment, notice how we often avoid these internal discomforts and bring a little appreciation to what's arising.  And then expand out, cultivating gratitude and awe for the rich tapestry of existence.

Whereas in gratitude practice, I can amplify the positive impact of good things in my own life, in mudita practice we derive joy from the good things in both our own as well as in others' experience. For me, this underscores the fundamental idea of interconnectedness. My own good is not separate from the good of others. When others are fortunate or successful, we can train our minds to react with appreciation.
