DIY Plant Ritual
Make sure that you have a pen or pencils and paper nearby. You may also want to take some pictures. The video takes about 10 minutes in total, but we advise you to take it in your own tempo by pushing the pause button whenever an assignment is suggested, and play when you’ve finished it. Don’t forget to put on your audio, so that you won’t miss the meditation.
