When in nature, it is an opportunity to listen with our bodies.
It – listening with our bodies – is a skill to develop.
It requires us to zero in on the wind as it travels over our hands – the air from the wind.
Or the feeling of our feet in our shoes.
Feeling only the air over our hands or arms, or the feel of our feet in our shoes, returns us to our bodies.
Returning to our bodies, and staying out of the mind’s many layers of narration, is an essential skill to returning to calm, and to returning to a state of awareness.
