SERENITY MEDITATION WITH ALICE YORK
Join Alice York for a meditation to guide you into a space of serenity. Broadcasting from her home in Chicago, Alice leads this meditation to bring peace during a time that has likely, consciously or not, brought stress into our lives. We invite you to take a moment to enjoy this practice and set an intention for the day ahead. "The mind is so often out in the ether, traveling through time and space—racing, busy, navigating stressors, working to understand the world around us and the situations we find ourselves in—while our bodies are tangible, solid, concrete, and—following the rules of science—always in one place. Let an awareness of the breath, a mindfulness of our own breathing, bring a sense of centering, allowing the mind to integrate with the body and take a pause in the present." -Alice York
FIVE SENSES MEDITATION
"During times of uncertainty, crisis and confusion, there are two things I like to turn to: my breath, and nature." Today we are sharing a five senses meditation by Sara Weinreb, created to bring peace and grounding into our lives during this time of uncertainty, that leads to unwanted stress and feelings of anxiousness. We hope this can bring you into a state of tranquility and elevated state of mind.

A SUMMER SOLSTICE RITUAL
"Feel the cool grass or dirt underneath your feet. Close your eyes and reach your arms out, tilt your head up to the sky and take a few deep belly breaths. Feel the sun kissing your face and mentally say a few thoughts of gratitude for your life and for the season." -Amrit-Sadhana Khalsa Summer Solstice is a powerful time to set intentions for the season ahead. With the support of medicinal herbs and mindful practices, Amrit shows us how we can connect with nature and ourselves more deeply on this day.
