The Heart Whisperer: Sweet Breath

The Heart Whisperer: Sweet Breath

I've used variations of this practice for years and it is very effective for helping to create a tactile experience, a somatic experience, of what it feels like to sit with a soft, unguarded heart center.  It brings us back and forth between physically posturing ourselves so our chest oscillates between over closing and over opening.
