This past year, many of us have faced adversity, trauma, tragedy, threats, or significant sources of stress—such as family and relationship problems, serious health problems, or workplace and financial stressors. Let this three-minute video be a meditation on resilience, taught by the rivers of the world.

    The rivers of the world always flow and are ever changing. We too are ever changing. Resilience is our ability to continue flowing -- even as we change.

    I spend plenty of time in nature. The water, the trees, the birds chirping, the light, the breeze it’s all so calming and soothing. It refreshes the mind and soul.

    the capacity to recharge ourselves is everywhere if we take the time to embrace it. The video invited me to return to taking my daily walks, sitting quietly in the sunshine, listening to the birds chirping and letting go of today's news and happenings.

    To flow like the river is to walk in beauty and harmony. Mitákuye oyàsin, hozho naasha doo, beannacht. }:- a.m.

    Nature gives and teaches us so much: moving rivers that reach so many places yet change is constant. Sometimes banks erode so the shape changes but it is still the river, still flowing, still giving. A reminder of what we are capable of being - caring, sharing beings. Beautiful scenery and sounds.

    I know that rivers recover from flooding, eroding, storms. This was a simple, short message of peace and remembering to give care to oneself. Recharge our batteries, so to speak.

    I was so refreshed from seeing the rushing water, and nature, and the reminder that you have the right to your own experience.Whatever gives you joy is what counts, there is no score to keep.
