Holistic Balance 3


Finding White Space

We learned to literally TAKE our time, and explored the Japanese concept of "yutori." We met Oliver Burkeman, who helped us to "live the questions."


Step 1

Listen... poet Naomi Shihab Nye.

In conversation with Krista Tippit (OnBeing):

Step 2

Consider & Journal...

... on the concept of Yutori

  • What is Yutori to you? 

  • Where in your week ahead can you add more ‘white space?’ 

  • What resonates from “the questions…”?

Step 3

Express Yourself

What do you want more of? Less of?

  • Answer by visualizing a conceptual part of your body that you’d like to impact.

  • Use something from the natural world to symbolize the “more” or “less” thing.

  • Illustrate! Collage, drawings, digital — anything goes!
