Four Directions

Erin: This is one of the first meditations I ever did, on a field trip to the woods with my alternative high school. Often invoked to begin ceremonies, the directions are associated with elements, seasons, stages of life, animals, and emotions. In this sit, we’ll move our bodies (and/or our awareness) to face each direction and notice what emerges. Does our felt experience of the directions match up with what they’re “supposed” to represent? Let’s find out!
