By moving the body in a prescribed pattern,
we release the mind

Standing at the entrance of an ancient meditation path
cleanse the lungs, the mind –
release tension, worry and angst


May Day Labyrinth Walk
by Dawn Anderson
5/1/2010 National Labyrinth Day
Labyrinth at Resurrection Episcopal Church, Eugene, OR

I sit with my feet dangling inside the labyrinth.
A day layered on May Day;
on an ancient Pagan holiday of nature and fertility.

How fitting to be here on this powerful day of Spring, celebrating nature
in this labyrinth of rocks and trees and moss and fern and royal purple lupine.


Talking to a Pine cone
by Dawn Anderson

He was rough around the edges,
sometimes too critical
when stroked against his fur.

So, I picked him up gently cradling
him in the tough fleshy part of my hand
and addressed him as sir.
“Sir Pine-cone,
what are your dreams?”

He bristled, fanning his scales
like a bird from a bath
then relaxed in my palm.

After a long time,
when he knew I would not go away,
he spoke.
“I do not dream…
I do.”

And he was so right.
