Thin Space No. 1: Head, Heart, Body

Updated: Nov 29, 2023

Thin Space is a daily e-mail for paid subscribers to my Substack that includes a reflection question, an intention for the day, and a meditative thought. In Celtic lore, “thin space” is a place where the veil between worlds is thin. It’s a spot where you know there is more. It is mysterious, sacred, startling, mystical. Grieving and anxiety can be thin spaces, I believe. By posing questions and offering meditative moments, I hope to create a little thin space in your day, a spot of time that’s outside time.

The Question

How are your head, heart, and body today? Sit with each for a moment today and notice, really notice, how you’re doing.


The Intention

Listen to this head, this heart, this body.


The Meditative Moment

Inhale through the nose. Exhale out the mouth.

Notice your thoughts. Without judgment.

Notice your heart and emotions. Without judgment.

Notice your body. Without judgment.

Inhale through the nose. Exhale out the mouth.
