In Episode Two of the All Tides Podcast, I go into my approach to meditation, as well as share a lake-centric meditation to get you out of your head, with compassion, and use the scenes of any lake that comes to mind..
In this episode, I get into:
Some reasons why we feel so good when we’re in/around/under water and whether water time “counts” as meditation
Definition of Blue Mind (and snag a signed copy of the Blue Mind book by Wallace J Nicholshere):“A mildly meditative state characterized by calm, peace, unity, and a sense of general happiness and satisfaction with life in the moment.”
A few notes from our first Blue Mind Book Club, including the mention of these two quotes that I couldn’t find during the recording:
This is from one book club participant Jackie, who we’ve nicknamed the Village Keeper because she keeps us up to speed on all things Pewaukee - the little strip where our shop is located in Wisconsin AND has a heart for preserving the charm of this area when asked what she feels when standing by the edge of water,“It really just clears your whole being. You feel connected to something greater than yourself”
“Humankind has not woven the web of life. We are but one thread within it. Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves. All things are bound together. All things connect.” – Chief Seattle, Duwamish
Tips and suggestions on how to make meditation work for you - not just work for you, but how to make it fun and tailored to your preferences.
I end the episode with a 10 minute guided lake-centric meditation.
