Meditation for Love [Free Guided Meditation]

Healing, Learning to Love YourselfChloë RainComment
Someone I loved once gave me a box full of darkness.
It took me years to understand that this too, was a gift.
— Mary Oliver

Today a part of me, I almost didn't remember, got weepy, as a song played, and my body physically remembered that I had been a dancer. I had been a ballet dancer for 12 years, and at one point in my younger life, a strong dancer. Though I was always a bit short and thick with large breasts, I never fit the ballet dancer mold, I had loved ballet with my whole body.

My adult mind had forgotten, I had ever been a dancer at all, though my pinky toes still bear the scars of years of bleeding in toe-shoes, my adult mind had forgotten that I even knew how to DANCE.

Now, the near perfect stranger and I are reunited in spirit. My body and heart rest as one.

Remembering, I am a dancer. Art Exhibition "Seeing Now": Hans Op de Beeck’s lyrical animation, Night Time

Remember what you love.

Go, do that.


Joy to you, I give you a special guided meditation to usher in compassion and self love. IN-JOY!


Hans Op de Beeck’s lyrical animation, Night Time, "Seeing Now" Exhibition at 21c Museum Hotel Durham mixes nostalgia and desire in both praise and mourning for the unseen world of darkness and dreams.

The relation between what we see and what we know is never settled. Each evening we see the sun set. We know that the earth is turning away from it. Yet the knowledge, the explanation, never quite fits the sight.
— John Berger, Ways of Seeing
