On the banks of beautiful Still Creek in Burnaby, BC i worked with a group of community artists and the Still Moon Arts Society to create the Spirit Fish Festival.
Kyira Korrigan helped me create this Invitation to Mindful Moment which I image recreating in Stanley Park some day.
You are invited to pass through this arch and into a mindful moment.
Step 1: This journey will be undertaken in silence.
Pause a moment before entering; breathe deeply and let go of words.
When ready, announce your intention to proceed with a ring of the bell.
Step 2: Find a place to comfortably stand near the river. WATCH YOUR STEPS, WHERE YOU PUT YOUR FEET! When you arrive, return your gaze to your surroundings. Here a river flows.
Pause for a moment, and listen. What is the dominant sound? Explore the components of the background you are immersed in. Listen a bit longer—let a minute or two pass.
Step 3: As you exit, you may choose to ring the bell again to sound completion of your mindfulness.
