Take a deep breath and let it out with a sigh.

Wheeeeee. Let’s Train!

(Thank you Tony Hole)

Body Wisdom:

Joy is a constant underground, embodied river. But sometimes we forget. Celebration, community, music, dance, making something, another person, a good game, a divine moment, a win can tap it. Still, we get rusty. Joy is a body thing, a gift of being human. Why wait to unleash it? Even those who grieve need it.

Train Your Joy Body

Behold the beauty around you. It beholds you.

Let the Reassurance of Westcott and Rodway, lead you into

silence or

the dance of one hand or your whole being or

humming or toning or


If that didn’t do it try…

(Sorry about that evil twin bit at the end)

Bring a hand up in connection to those all around:  friends, playmates, challenging partners.

Move a hand to this chant from Mary Grigolia, UU minister, InterPlay friend.

Love opens up our bodies

and Love opens our spirits

and love opens our hearts

We’re seeds of love, we’re seeds of love.

Celebrate the love the births the seed

Comfort one another when we grief

Greet each day together with the need to

share this love, to share this love.

Take a deep breath and let it out with a sigh.
