Mindfulness with Wally
I don’t talk about it here much but I have had a mindfulness meditation practice for about 8 years. My mindfulness mentor used to tell me stories about how she would meditate in the morning and all her pets would tuck in around her peacefully. Wally missed a critical part of that memo as he supports me in my mindfulness practice.
The funny thing is that nearly all of these were taken on different days. Wally is such a snuggle monster and loves people that this is pretty much what my life is like when I’m on the floor in our den. Yesterday I was doing yoga upstairs and while in side angle pose Wally decided to put both his front paws on the arm that was resting on my thigh. I get so many laughs from this silly, dopey dog. Sometimes I just need to modify my practice into a loving kindness practice focusing on him to try to give back some of the abundant love that he gives me.
