A Word on Times

Each Practice in the Daily Centerings is named for a time of day. As each person's life is different, these times will mean different things to different Practitioners.

For example, the Practice intended for "Morning" might be done at (or near) sunrise; or whenever the Practitioner wakes; or over breakfast; or at the start of the day for a person who has an unusual schedule (like working nights). If it is a day off, a Practitioner might use the Morning Practice before starting the day's activities, even if that's at 2 p.m.

Here, then, are some alternative meanings for the name of each Practice:

Morning: sunrise, waking, breakfast time, start of day, before engaging in activity

Midday: Lunchtime, midday break, at a shift in responsibilities

Evening: After work, dinnertime, sundown, upon returning home

Night: When the day's work is through, when preparing for bed
