Just sitting, practicing doing nothing, breathing, and paying attention to our breathing is fundamental to formal meditation practice. Yet, meditation and mindfulness can be cultivated through other methods, such as standing, walking, eating, communicating, etc.

Writing is also a wonderful, creative, grounding practice that can be meditative.

The act of putting words on a page, whether handwritten, cursive words on a physical page of a notebook or typed words on a computer, is therapy. It is a meditation, a medicine. It is a pouring out of the heart-mind, a necessary act, a way to process, reflect, and integrate teachings, patterns, lessons, and revisions.

The act of moving one’s hand across the page is a miracle, a simple choice, and a habit that can be so cathartic and healing.

Read on for three simple meditations to help you get centered before writing practice.
