About The Site

Nature is a place of wonderment, life, and surprisingly deep wisdom. The many plants that surround us respond to their world – to the world around us. We, in turn, respond to nature. We grow with it, care for it, and venture into it.

This is a place of mindfulness and nature. The site started around my garden and learning to care for the many plants in it. It grew to include my study and practice of mindfulness, which are happily always ongoing.

I hope that this site helps you in some way. If you’d like to keep updated, please subscribe below – or check out guided meditations on the podcast. Have a wonderful day!

Lion’s Breath – Simhasana

For people who are shy about speaking up, Simhasana pranayama is a great way to let out some noise. When you roar in Simhasana, your air should flow out freely. Do your best not to constrict the throat – this is all about freeing it up! The breath instead comes from contracting the abdominal muscles and the pelvic floor.

Diaphragmatic Breathing

Diaphragmatic breathing is something we do instinctually. It’s also something we can easily do consciously. Just like other forms of mindfulness, diaphragmatic breathing can have far-reaching benefits, not the least of which is that breathing is good. And when you’re breathing with your diaphragm into the furthest reaches of your lungs, it can be even better.
