Spring is Here!
Birds are singing their spring tunes and the sun feels closer and warmer each week. Even with frosty Minnesota mornings, it is easy to feel the quickening of plant and animal life all around us. Once hidden life is beginning to emerge and grow from the earth. Our growth is also part of the energy of spring, a time of great changes.
As we find how best to stay closer to home, it is a vital time to get outdoors, connect with the earth – our communal home, and enjoy nature when and how we can. (My gardens have never before been prepped in early April!) I saw a pair of muskrats playing recently in a pond. Their habitat and community are limited, yet they play and fully explore the joys of being alive unfettered! It was a perfect vignette. Taking nature’s cues may inspire us to sing (simply because we can) and of course, because it is good for the soul. Finding ways to enjoy and be grateful for what we have, we become less preoccupied with what we may be doing without.

by Rhonda Battisto
Am I being, feeling and doing my best
as myself…my values and actions,
in my body, life and relationships?
Am I taking seriously my limited time on earth?
My responsibilities, goals and the power I wield,
to be a force for good on my path,
at this most interesting time, for this world?
Am I well, strong and resilient enough,
for this journey, this life, this dream?
For my loved ones, my work and the
challenges I face? Can I carry on? Endure?
Thrive? Am I at Peace?
Do I rest? Can I be still and know…feel
God, the Universe, great life-force vitality
coursing through me now?
Am I grateful enough for the many gifts,
life itself, to enjoy, learn and grow?
Family, friendship, nourishment, beauty,
animal companions, the grandeur of nature?
Lakes. Streams. Clouds. Sun.
The miracle of existence and magic of living?
Do I shine? Inspire? Uplift?
Am I kind? Patient? Worthy?
Brave? Humble? Generous?
Am I smiling? Sharing? Lively?
Are my words gentle? My thoughts?
Am I at peace now? Will I ever be?
Can I sit or walk with myself in this life,
in peace? If not now, when?
If not yet, how? If not me, who?
Am I at peace?
Qigong Basics Workshop Report
Nearly twenty adult learners from three generations gathered on a brisk Sunday in March to learn basic qigong concepts, tools and techniques. The room was full of light for an afternoon of discovery, empowerment and self-healing. The fireplace glowed warmly as earnest students shared great questions and expanded their awareness of natural, holistic healing energy each of us can direct and enjoy.
The group practiced gentle qigong movements and a relaxing guided meditation before conveying healing energy to one another. Many were surprised at how effectively beginners could promote true relief from pain and tension! Their confidence grew and spirits were uplifted throughout the process. With love, kindness, forgiveness and compassion, we can and do continue to empower and heal ourselves and support the healing of others.
I am grateful to Spirit United for hosting this delightful workshop. Thank you so much!
