Great place to practiceI spent decades trying to create a safe place.  Safety in numbers, safer neighborhood, alarm systems, weapons, and self defense classes.  After trying all these methods I still felt unsafe.

Listening to a guided meditation the speaker asked me to imagine a safe place.  I thought of all the places I have been to and it dawned on me that I didn’t feel safe anywhere.  Now that I was aware of the problem I was actively seeking a new solution.  It snuck up on me through a mandatory meditation walk, required training for a martial arts class.

Leading up to the meditation walk I felt scared I would get poison oak.  On the walk I became aware of how unnatural it is for an earthling to be afraid of nature.  As part of a group I saw and heard a broad range of comfort with being in a forest.  This showed me where I was at and what feeling really comfortable and safe looked like.

I heard being in nature spoken of as a satisfying sexual experience.

What???  Really???  At the time I didn’t feel this way, I was however very inspired to continue the practice and see where it led me.
