revisiting: observing breath on moved to heal

Tune in to your breathing

Observing breathing is simple in concept and can be a whole variety of things in practice, including simple, difficult, complicated, emotional, and more. Today I'm guiding you through a few approaches to explore when you're ready.
Listen to "Observing Breathing - RECAST Ep 10" on Spreaker.


What’s in this episode of moved to heal?

I invite you to observe your breathing in any way you choose, and offer 3 different options you can try. For each, I describe the option and then give you about a minute of quiet in which to practice.


3 breath observation options offered

  • to notice the length of your inhale and exhale
  • to notice the movement of your breathing
  • to notice the sound of your breathing

While you listen to the episode, you can do or not do any of the practices, and in whatever manner or degree you choose.


What makes this trauma informed?

Choices, invitations, noticing, open-ended experiments. Read more about those here.


Integration suggestion

After listening to the episode, perhaps take a moment to check in: did you notice something that you want to remember or follow up on? If yes, maybe jot it down in a notebook or record a voice memo to help you remember.

Be moving, be true, be you
