Earlier this week, I attended an Evening of Exploration at the Academy for the Love of Learning. We explored Coming Back to Center – Embodied Leadership.
One of the most profound things I learned involved not always being able to tell if I was present within myself while being present with another person. What an amazing awareness . . .
How do I know when I am present with myself? What does it feel like? If I’m not in my own center, what does it take for me to become present in my own center?
I’m excited to share this piece with you – exploring this . . .
Experiencing being present with myself . . .
Hello, is anybody home?
As I take a deep breath,
I check inside.
Can I feel myself here?
At home in my body?
I feel the energy of me
In my heart center.
I feel the edges
of my physical home
In the tips of my fingers
and the tips of my toes.
I feel my energetic presence
beyond my physical home.
As I feel out farther and farther,
I experience my Oneness
with my Big Home.
All that Is.
Ah, to be home
And to be Home.

I would love your thoughts and responses. Post comments and insights below . . .
