Years ago I took a workshop with Anne C. Klein. Now I read her words from “Revisiting Ritual”.
Our mind wanders incessantly, but our body and senses are always in the present. To investigate our embodied experience is to investigate the living present.
I’m with what it is to investigate the living present, and in that to juice the sacred within, to feel the touch of lungs on heart swinging through like monkeys in trees, branching and expanding the roles we share.
The octopus has three hearts and nine brains, a central brain and one in each of its eight arms. We have ten fingers. What might we stretch and embrace to reach even beyond what we see?
On Juneteeth, we remember that 157 years ago, white Americans enslaved African Americans because of the color of their skin. We remember and change.
