Free Home Practice Online: Release Tension, Reconnect To Your Breath & Wellbeing

We must be able to assimilate that which will contribute to our wellbeing and release that which would become toxic if built up. We also know that complete digestion can only happen when our bodies and minds are ‘safe’ to Rest and Digest (parasympathetic nervous system); when we are relaxed, warm, and relatively content.

Listening Is Where Love Begins

Listening Is Where Love Begins

Many mindfulness teachers point to the Chinese character for listening as an instruction manual for how to listen. The character is made up of brushstrokes that represent several elements: At the top are the signs for ear and eye; the sign for undivided attention sits in the middle; and it’s all held at the bottom by the symbol for heart.
