The Weaving Meditation Challenge

I am not good at meditation. Even after a long, hard yoga class I can barely sit still for savasana, and forget about being able to wake up and take a few minutes to be still before starting my day. Until recently, I thought any kind of meditation was off the table for me. But then I realized something. When I weave I often find large chunks of time will go by when my mind has been totally clear. No worrying, no planning, no thinking about what to make for dinner.

This got me thinking: Could I make weaving my meditation? I came up with a few exercises for myself that each take around five minutes and help me to relax and clear my mind. They really work for me and I thought, with the often-stressful holidays fast approaching, this would be a great time to share these tricks with the Mirrix community.

I though I was the only one that used weaving as a meditation! I can’t wait to learn more!

I recently broke my arm and have been missing weaving. Hopefully il will be able to participate. Going to the doctor tomorrow and see what he has to say

It is the first anniversary of my son’s tragic death this month. Meditation will help through a very difficult time.

I love my mirrex loom! Such a simple and elegant design and easy to warp. I also weave on a Navajo loom and a Rio Grande loom.
