“Another practice I love is wandering. … It’s like walking meditation. I do find the time of going within to be replenishing, whether it’s for a half hour in the morning or evening, or a day long retreat. It’s that getting to know yourself, getting to be still, not having to do anything other than be with yourself. I learned how much fun I had when I was by myself, just being out in nature. Observing and listening and singing and praying all contributed to my sense of joy.” ― Judy Young, Ph.D.
