Stand in the Wind

The first time I tried this, I was at the second pond, standing at the end of the small dock, feeling the chill of the wind as I faced into it, but not feeling chilly. It felt fun, so I'm sharing here.

How to Practice

Stand outdoors in a strong breeze or wind. Don’t hunch against the wind or fight it at all. Stand directly in it.

Spread out your arms. Invite it to play.

Imagine that the wind is blowing air not just over you, but through you, between your cells.

Feel the change that this makes in your body. For me, it often feels as though my insides are a bit cooler than they were.


Sometimes when I do this, I feel the wind is playing along with me, suddenly gusting, and suddenly quiet. It’s a quick and simple clearing process.
