Summer Meditation: “The Plant You Water” a dharma talk and guided meditation with Wil Darcangelo, music by Nina Vecchi.

It’s always the plant you water which grows. This old idea shows up in many cultures. In Native American traditions, it is the wolf you feed which lives. In modern spiritual language, it represents the law of attraction. In Christianity, it is the physics behind “ask and you shall receive.” So what have we been watering that gives us this present “garden?” What should we water next?

About this episode’s music: “For this meditation, I combined metal and crystal bowls without guitar. Symbolically the metal bowls represent the hardness of the patriarchal era which will eventually meld (though maybe kicking up a fuss) into the more fluid Aquarian energy represented by the crystal bowls. I hope you like it.” -Nina Vecchi

This summer we offer weekly, pre-recorded meditation services. Take a brief pause to unwind and decompress. Breathe. All recorded services and summer meditations are available on our YouTube channel.
