For times of duress or transition. Can be helpful in the most demanding of times.
In 2005, I was involved in a project in the far west of New South Wales, working on unceded Barkindji land: red desert, spinifex, mounds of glorious Sturt Desert Pea in bloom. Stories of the river: salt poisoning the lakes. Hard conversations.
One day, traveling to a workshop, our driver spotted a kangaroo by the roadside, recently killed. We stopped. There were children with us. I asked permission to honor the creature and say goodbye.
We prayed, we listened.
Then we saw the heart of the kangaroo leap from its body and out towards the horizon, liberated. Back from whence it came, back into all time. The children with us saw this too. What a privilege, to witness all enterings and exits.
THE MEDITATION (2009-21)
First created on Dharawal and Ngunnawal lands.
This meditation was created and practiced with several clients from the year 2009. If you choose to practice it, please stay anchored in your sit bones (as per instructions). Stay aware of your spinal column, aware of your breath, aware of your body in the chair. If you choose to practice it or share with others, please ask them to do the same. The work is copyright, and citation of author is appreciated.
More meditations will be posted on the Art Doula landing page in coming weeks. Some will be free access; for others, a donation would be appreciated.
You can order a bespoke meditation by contacting me through this website any time.
Peace and blessings, Zsuzsi
