When I was writing my Cells book I got the surprising idea to meditate each day on a different chapter, to discover even more deeply what our cells have to teach us.

I start with SANCTUARY And this is where I usually start a class, talk, or workshop – with SANCTUARY

Chapter 1 of the book is Sanctuary.  
This tells a sci-sacred myth of how molecules gathered to create a container, or sanctuary, for life. If we consider that each cell contains all the necessary molecules and life force to survive, we are reminded that we too are embraced by all of molecule marriages, 100 trillion times.

Molecules get together to form a container for life,Without the container for all the molecules and parts, there can be no life.  The Divine Life Force needs a container and that is the Cell.  Every one of your cells is a container of that sacred energy given to ignite life.

fancy cellEvery cell is a sanctuary for that sacred life force.  

LET’S meditate on that. HERE IS a CELL SANCTUARYguided mediation for going inside.  Please don’t listen when you are driving.  Sit in a safe sacred place, quiet .


Close your eyes, breathe easily and bring your awareness to your belly, feeling your breath.  As you breathe in relaxation from your center, let your awareness move to wherever you consider the ‘outer edge’ of you.  Imagine that all of your cells are engaged in this visualization with you.  Know that they are holding you in the sacred container of life.  Hold that, feel that and let it inform you for the day.  The light of life and spirit are within.  When you are ready, open your eyes and remember the wonder of all that you are.

And when you are done, take in the wonder that is nature.  This is a drawing of a type of algae taken from Dover Publications.  Is this an organism, a mandala, or?
