Bowed in Prayer

From Sufis spinning with one hand to the sky and one to the earth to Muslims prostrating toward Mecca, religions around the world connect the body to the spirit in prayer. Even people who do not have a traditional prayer practice connect body and spirit through dance, yoga, chant or countless other means.

How do you connect your body and your spirit?

Mediated

Social media connects people around the world, making possible relationships that could otherwise never have existed. It also creates the temptation to view our experiences through the lens of what we can share for others to view—and through the literal lens of a phone camera—rather than actually surrendering to the experience of the moment.

What habits tend to distance you from your own direct experiences?

Illuminated

Every now and again a “certain slant of light” hits the scenery, and a particular spot is illuminated, set aglow. Every now and again a thought or feeling or memory strikes us, and we light up, our world suddenly shifted by that moment of illumination.

What has come to you in a moment of illumination?

Summer Solstice

We know very little of how the Stonehenge structure was used—only that ancient people put in the incredible effort needed to set massive stones to frame the rising sun on the summer solstice. Which is to say that we know that the impulse to connect to something much larger than the self is deeply ingrained in what it means to be human.

How will you mark the summer solstice by connecting to something larger than yourself?
