A Summer full of growth and connections can fly by in a blur.  I am told that if we learn to sit with the world in such a way that we can come to hear the creaking of the raspberry branches as they bend under the weight of the developing fruit, then we will have access to so much more of the world we inhabit.  How can you take time to check in? Where can you imagine hearing growth? What new things await your silence?

This is part of a new series of mindfulness prompts that are based in Métis teachings. Each weekly post will be an image specifically designed to fit the lock-screen on your phone. The idea is that you can make mindfulness easy, effective and beautiful all at the same time. Placing each new image on your lock screen will hopefully keep it in the front of your mind and allow you enough time to lean into the learning.
