Body Poem – Sensual

This week's Body Poem mini-retreat focuses on the color Yellow-Green and the quality Sensual.

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 - F - G


  • use long and slow tones to vocalize the word "Sensual"
  • visualize the color Yellow-Green filling your energy field

Color: my thoughts on its healing properties



In my artwork yellow-green is a color I use very sparingly. I generally tend towards a darker palette so it works as a natural highlight in my compositions. I guess that is often also true in nature as yellow-green is the color of sunlight falling on the green of a leaf. It inspires in me feelings of sweetness, playfulness, growth, and a yearning to be joyfully engaged in the world.

Word: a contemplation on the mystical energy it inspires



Experiencing the tactile world is a sensual act of being present in the moment. The sensual reality of beauty in taste, texture, color, sound, or aroma bring us into intimate relationship to the material world we inhabit. Being in a body actively moving though space is a sensual act as we are constantly using our senses to orient in space, make choices, and form relationships.

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.


May I be liberated
May I dispel fear
May I savor my success
May my heart be clear

This is a chant I wrote in 2010.
It makes me feel powerful and calm.
