Washing Your Hands for Love Video
From Trudy Goodman at InsightLA : “Washing our hands so often, for so long, can be hard to sustain. I don’t know about you, but for me, singing “Happy Birthday” twice gets old! How can we transform this necessary chore into a support for opening our hearts? We can repeat loving kindness phrases, offering wishes for the health and well-being of our loved ones and our world. We can explore the sensuousness of mindful presence, reveling in the feeling of water on our hands, grounding ourselves in this very moment – the only one we actually have. At InsightLA, we put together this video to inspire you to take the time it does take to thoroughly clean our hands and stay healthy and well. Handwashing can be an uplifting splash of mindfulness, many times a day!”
