The dance of MURMURATION manifests celestial breath, and it is the breath that leads us to places.
Hundreds, thousands, tens of thousands of birds spontaneously come together in flight creating an ephemeral form that soon breathes into another expanding form. In & out, in & out. The individual birds do not collide, all the while sensing their ever-changing relationships and air drafts.
NASA studies attribute this phenomenon of group flight without colliding to each bird’s awareness of 7 adjacent birds. So, within these large flocks, each bird is paying attention to the whereabouts of 7.
Imagine exercising this practice of paying attention to the position and welfare of 7 things, be they people, animals, plants, whatever. Notice the actual and sensed physical and mental space in between the chosen things. You become a murmuration. In & out, in & out.
The wings of MURMURATION carried the message, ‘Don’t edit, welcome movement and connect with gratitude in being part of the process.’
I became a MURMURATION. Thank you for coming; enjoy your murmur.
Please join us for the Opening Reception on Saturday, July 19, 2014 from 1-3 pm
