Meditate with a Partner

You may have heard that meditation will help your relationship. Meditation makes you more present, more aware, more curious, more efficient, more available, more resilient, more skillfully communicative, flexible in how you show up and respond, more empathic (aka “nicer to hang with), smarter, more intuitive, less afraid, and more ethical.

(Thank you Douglas Brooks for introducing me to the power of double negation.) The more I start eating out of the woods the more food I notice. When you start to eat the plants in your woods, fields, prairies, and swamps, the landscape becomes the tissues of your body.
