If you aren’t able to go outside, this can be an invitation to watch birds out your window. Or you can just let Sarah’s movement, Molly’s language, and the descriptions texted in from other birders around the country, be your tools for grounding into your body and tuning-in to the natural world.
from Molly’s Audubon article:
Enjoy watching birds from home? Did you know that birdwatching is a gateway to a powerful mindfulness practice? It’s called a “bird sit.”
A bird sit is like an outdoor meditation with a focus on birds.
Bird sits provide similar benefits to mindfulness practices, including relaxation and quiet mind. They also cultivate a deeper bond with the birds around us and reveal the birds’ secret languages.
PS. You can view previous bird sits on Audubon CA’s IGTV channel.
