pause. breathe. check in. finding our centre again
it’s only a gumnut
nature as a canvas
We spent some time playing with a broken piece of a gumnut lying in the footpath. Which of these two “canvases” do you prefer? We honestly can’t decide.
what is lying in your footpath today?
we had some fun using filters to play with the idea of “seasons” - as in seasons of life. does it speak seasons to you or do you see or think something else?
If you were to pick up your phone or camera right now and start snapping shots of something lying on your floor or the ground, what would it be? Would you like to join us and try create something around the theme of “seasons” - of life? of love?
oh my gosh, we’d be so keen to see what you come up with.
starting the day just noticing
nothing more for now
it‘s the SEASON

So here we are sharing our daily practice of PAUSE. BREATHE. CHECK IN. Clearing the clutter and finding me, myself and I in the present moment. And we invite you to follow along and let's keep each other on track? Or try to at least, some days are still pretty bumpy. Sigh
Create your own or feel free to riff off ours. Sometimes it's just hard to know where to start, isn't it? Follow along and let our ideas inspire yours: you can copy and embellish or go off on a whole other tangent that delights and frights you (and we are always keen to hear new ideas)
If you're feeling brave, post your versions in our comment feed so others can be inspired too. (No need for fancy or pro lit photos - ours are always on our living room floor in front of the window and the lighting is chance!) Or upload to your own social media (be sure to use our hashtags #veryhumanregulation #veryhumanmoments so we can find each other). Either way, make sure to comment on posts by others and encourage one another as we all drop our anchors and find what's in the stillness (or the fire)
The only rules are: please be supportive and encouraging!
How We Go About It
We go outside (fresh air) and pay attention to nature and details in the world around us (focusing tool). We hone in on one view and start snapping shots with our phone - having fun with filters, angles, perspectives, whatever delights (calming our nervous system and bringing ourselves back on line through hyper focusing)
