Meditating with Bailey Nanda -
A Daily Gratitude Experience in Nature
Each morning my beautiful golden retriever companion, Bailey Nanda and I head out for our
daily ritual of drinking in the day. Often still dark, we are blessed with a plethora of awe-inspiring unfoldings as dawn becomes daylight. From lingering starlight on some occasions, to a sunrise over Mt. Baker in brilliant hues of gold, apricot and turquoise, to a wild riot of a billion snowflakes kissing our eyes and cheeks, to gale force winds dancing in trees and in our hair, nature blesses our every step.
I have taken to adding in a walking meditation centered on gratitude that I practice first for myself and then - it becomes 'Metta' - a form of loving kindness for all of life. I would love to share this here with you in the hopes that it may resonate and become part of your own daily ritual as you honor YOU and all Sentient Beings.
Drink In the Day
I Am Grateful for…
- my strong, healthy body
- my calm, clear mind
- my tranquil soul
- my open, peaceful heart.
(This I repeat several times in rhythm to the cadence of our walking.)
Then it becomes "Metta" as I repeat:
May All Beings know…
- a strong, healthy body
- a calm, clear mind
- a tranquil soul
- an open, peaceful heart.
(Once again, repeating for a deepening of the prayer and intention.)
Below you will find a short audio of this meditation if you perhaps prefer being guided in your practice.
In closing, my wish for you is all of the above. As we share our inner light generously from the love within us, transformation is a certainty. So simple, yet so profound, the changes we can inspire when we live and commune from our beautiful hearts.

Come into the silence of you and tap into a place of knowingness and peace.
I’ve come to meditation for the very first time in my 70’s. With Maureen guiding us into deep relaxation, it comes fairly easily, with a wonderful feeling of peace and calm. Very, very good for any of us with a hectic “normal” life, reminding us of what is possible. - M.S.
Maureen’s relaxation techniques and her provision of a meaningful meditation Mantra makes for a deep and enjoyable meditation experience. I appreciate the chance to attend only to myself and to only recognize the external world but then let it go. - L.S.
