Recharging This Long Weekend

I swore I would not check email this weekend but can't help but share this with all of you.

An academic peer of mine, Dr. Caroline Barratt from the School of Health and Social Care at the University of Essex, UK  created this short program for anyone who is seeking to add some contemplative practices into their lives.

Below is her description.

“Through the use of short meditations, poetry, and other activities she hopes to help educators find some spaciousness and renewal in the midst of everyday busyness.

The program is designed to be followed over three days (perfect for this long weekend). Each day you are invited to take part in three activities at whatever time suits you.

One will be a meditation; one will be reading some poetry and the third will vary depending on the focus of the day. If you were to do all three activities each day they would take you 30-45 minutes.”

I for sure will be taking advantage to invite some contemplative space into my life this weekend. I urge you to do the same.
