Meditation

Those who have a yoga practice, or practice exercise in any manner, are familiar with the shaking energy that occasionally emerges within us as we exert strength. In the yogic tradition, this shaking energy is called prana, meaning “the vital force within us.” Observing the world around her, Native American Poet Laureate Joy Harjo observes this energy deep within the earth – a vital force that connects the inanimate and the living, bridging the divides of our world through a steady beat. Listen to the energy that scrapes the hull of your soul. Where do you find that same energy reflected in the world around you?
