Root to Rise. What comes to mind when you think about what it might mean for you to “root to rise”? In the 12 Tiny Things community group, the last 12 months have been spent moving through different areas of life: From home to work to spirituality to creativity to food to community, we’ve taken time to explore each area and identify the tiny thing – the small practice – that adds strength to our unique foundation. In doing so we’ve uncovered some of the essentials that give us roots from which to operate in a complex world. There is no one right thing that works for everyone, and that’s the beauty of the practice. This is about looking at what each of our individual lives need more or less of to feel right and good, how to balance yes with no, self care with compassion/care for others, internal life with external activity. There are often similarities from person to person, but everyone’s combination of tiny things is different.
As we look ahead to 2019, we’ll once again move through the year with intention, this time focusing on a different verb for each month. We will root deeply into that which provides nourishment, and with that nourishment, rise to what we need to fully embody the life we are called to live. What do you think you might need to do in order to root to rise?
We hope that you’ll join us, and you can do so here: 12 Tiny Things
