Qi Gong: Meditation in Motion with Dr. Greenapple

Walk Slowly

by Danna Faulds

It only take a reminder to breathe, a moment to be still, and just like that, something in me settles, softens, makes space for imperfections. The harsh voice of judgement drops to a whisper and I remember again that life isn’t a relay race; that we will all cross the finish line; that walking up to life is what we were born for. As many times as I forget, catch myself charging forward without even knowing where I’m going, that many times I can make the choice to stop, to breathe, and be and walk slowly into the mystery
