It's spring, and I'm planting new seeds in the garden of my mind. It's still too cold here to plant outdoors (I know, that's crazy — that's Canada!) but I'm diving deep into yoga therapy with new ideas and tools to support people. The seeds are ideas. They're also qualities I want to nurture in myself (compassion, generosity). Some are traits that I would like to foster in others (empowerment, resilience). And these seeds are imagined as plants. Some of them are vegetables — nutritious, supportive of good health, something to be harvested at some point. Others are merely beautiful — food for the soul. Of course, the tomatoes and the daisies are of equal importance in the cultivation and nourishment of a whole person.
Which seeds are you planting, and tending, in your own mind?
