Body Poem – Loving

This week's Body Poem mini-retreat focuses on the color Pearl and the quality Loving.

Deep Listening: a tuning fork meditation with an image of the associated color.


Just listen, breathe, and let the sound and color tune you.

The tuning fork tones used are C - E - C


  • use long and slow tones to vocalize the word "Loving"
  • visualize the color Pearl filling your energy field

Color: my thoughts on its healing properties



The smooth, round, and iridescent orb of a pearl is a gift from the watery depths of this world. This bit of decorative shimmer is woven into strands of jewelry and encrusted into a variety of fashions. For me pearl is a symbol of the luxury of growth, the elegance of change, and the blessing of knowing your self-worth.

Word: a contemplation on the mystical energy it inspires



I often express feeling loving as a kind of caring witnessing and a sensual type of communion. Family bonding is important to foster a loving household where all members feel valued and seen. Nurturing a loving perspective can bolster the heart and make every step of your day into a dance with joy.

Sound: a chant, tone, or simple song related to the poetic theme of the week.

Feel free to follow along with my voice or go on your own improvisational journey - harmonize, be rhythmic, play - simply take the time to be in your voice.

This is the Afro-Brazilian version of a devotional chant to Yemaya who is a Yoruba Goddess of the Ocean. She is known to bring many blessings and feelings of wholeness as well as the ability to engage in deep personal change. As she is associated with bodies of salt water she is also known as the great womb of life and great mother to all beings.

I learned this chant from my teacher, Silvia Nakkach, and sign it whenever I need to connect with self-love and the nourishment of feeling held by a divine mother.
