guided reflection/meditation for Movement Generation (2050)
MG’s invitation: Movement Generation has been coalescing in our (virtual) dream tank and like many of you we are leaning into and processing the range of emotions stirred up by the pandemic crisis. We also recognize this as a time of possibility to act collectively to make the ecological and economic shifts we need. In that spirit, we are leading with our hearts to create a four-session online course series that helps reframe the COVID-19 crisis.

please join me to time travel to our panelists.
drop into your breath, into your body, and feel yourself, briefly, in the present moment.
now draw your energy back and fling yourself forward, future ward, through space and time.
feel the chaos of leaping over years and decades with only glimpses of place and people. and now let yourself land.
hello – welcome to 2050.
it is YOUR birthday in 2050, so happy birthday to you!

what is this future you grateful for?
