Normally, in our household we’ve started our Easter weekend with a Good Friday 3-hour Meditation, a tradition we’ve followed for many years and it’s one of the few times I truly sit still and in silence for this length of time (quite a feat for a fidget and natural chatterbox!).
It’s good to find a place of quiet contemplation, so this year instead we’ve decided to create our own Easter gathering, block out a couple of hours, unplug devices, light some candles, listen to beautiful classical music (Steiner’s Crucifixion is stunning) or if Classical is not your thing, why not download our own The Repose Suite, the most beautiful collection of Templespa sounds. We will use this time to reflect over the past year and decide what we will bury and leave behind and what we will resurrect and take forward as part of our ‘new normal’.
There will be points of thankfulness and positive learnings as well as sadness and loss for us all and for sure, we have pressed pause and journeyed through a strange time together and will now tentatively press play, but perhaps in a more considered way.
