Spring Cleaning for Body and Mind

Spring has sprung.....began a poem I once wrote in elementary school.  It continued about the flowers popping up to say “hello! while the worms stay down far below.”  Or something like that.  For me, growing up, spring meant not only poetry, but the dreaded spring cleaning as well. “Many hands make light work!” my mother would declare as she firmly welcomed us into herspring-cleaning world of washing windows and vacuuming things I didn’t know could be vacuumed. Yet, I had to admit, clean windows gave us a view to a world coming alive with color after a barren winter.  All of nature was singing pink, rapping yellow and burping purple....burping eloquently, of course. The changing seasons outside provide opportunities for us to pause and ponder what is happening within us. “Just as there are seasons in the world around us, so there are in our interior life.” Teresa of Avila wisely observed.  “We cannot expect it otherwise.” So, it is good to pause and notice the season within.  Is our inner land still a bit barren and frozen? Is there a desire for renewal somewhere in our lives? We may not trust the stirring of life if our winter has been long and lonely. Emotional clutter and old growth may hinder our ability to see clearly and hopefully  possibilities for our living and loving. On the other hand, spring may find us ready for new growth, but we are not sure where or how it will come to blossom. It is through stillness that we create space to hear our truest selves speak. At a time when our activity increases with warmer weather, balancing activity with quiet can be a wonderful and even essential gift we give ourselves. Spring cleaning is easier with help. A gentle gardener helps prepare the soil. A predictable timetable ensures the garden is ready. I invite you to join me during this month for a May Meditation series I am calling “Spring Cleaning:  May Meditation”. Join a weekly small group where we will explore some themes of spring in our meditation: Waiting, Clearing, Awakening and New Growth. The class will beginning with a brief and gentle body warmup, followed by guided meditation and an opportunity to process the insight using various tools such as art, writing, continued silence or conversations with another student or myself. It’s time to Spring Clean our minds! Summer is just around the corner and we don’t want to miss it!
