Movement Meditation for Overcoming Grief

In ancient times, when every village was alongside a river, the people of the village would come together at times of mourning or loss. They would wade into the river up to their navel and practice this meditation. In modern times, you may sit on the floor or in a chair. If available, you may practice this meditation sitting or standing comfortably in water–in your bathtub at home, in a swimming pool, in a lake, a river, or the ocean when it is calm.
