This is your invitation to discover where the snail lives within yourself - a patient pace and the peace of knowing you are home.  

The snail invites us to imagine a different relationship with time. Contemplating our relationship with time is another way to embrace the mystery of life since time itself is a mystery. Time is the motion of change, a constant flow and movement - yet all we can ever experience is now. We live in the 'nowscape'. To cultivate a relationship with the reality of the present moment is a profound way to live. 

"The tiniest bit of reflection will make it evident to you that the present moment is the only moment we ever have in which to be alive. Perhaps that realization, seemingly so self-apparent and trivial, needs to sink in and drop deep down into our psyche, into the well of our own hearts... It will never be more rich in some other moment than this one." ~ Jon Kabat-Zinn
