1-5b Return to the Place

Close your eyes and breathe out.

You are on a journey
toward a place that is sacred for you: a mountain, cave, river, garden,
a place of prayer, a shrine,
or anywhere you imagine.

Move closer and closer to your destination.

When you arrive at the place, someone comes out to greet you— someone known or unknown to you.

They say to you: Welcome back. How wonderful that you have returned.

Notice what you feel
as you receive this welcome. Know that you were always meant to come back to this place.

Look down at yourself
and notice how you are transformed by your return to this sacred place.

Breathe out and open your eyes.
