weaving: ten standing movements

Be where you are

Today, I invite you to let yourself be where you are --in whatever way you take that invitation. And with that, I want to share a bit about letting your breathing be where it is, because our breathing and physiological state (and therefore our emotional state) are causally linked. Breathing is part of a network of systems with many moving and interrelating parts. I wrote more on that here. You might read it or go right on with with this week's practice. Enjoy!

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.
