We learn how to breathe in new ways when the air is filled with smoke. We learn our body, learn where there is space that we've never inhabited with breath before. We learn how to slow down, calm down, stay as relaxed as possible so that we can breathe.
We learn how to breathe differently when we wake up to the injustice of those around us. We look more tenderly, we let our throat constrict with real emotion & compassion for experiences we cant even begin to imagine.
We learn how to breathe differently when our world is rattled by an illness that impacts our individual and collective health. We learn how to share space in new ways, to come into deeper communication with our body's needs. We learn how to look for opportunities to take care or ourselves and others.
We are learning new ways to breathe this year.
For my West Coast folks: I am with you, with so much compassion and connection for the grief of our forests and our skies right now. Do all that you can to take care of your sweet bodies, lungs, and minds. Don't hesitate to reach out if I can offer support or guidance.
For everyone: We dig deeper when the pressures intensify...
The upcoming Reiki 1 & 2 training is an excellent opportunity to dig deeper into a spiritual connection and to gather tools for navigating these transitional times. We need new practices to care for our bodies and minds, we need new understandings to make sense of things in a way that keeps us moving forward. Reach out with questions or see full info below.
BodyTalk & Energy Medicine sessions are available via Zoom or phone. Packages available as well for hybrid sessions.
This Wednesday 9/16 @ 7pm PST Michael and I are holding our weekly Breathwork & Energy offering, though this one will just be a gentle energy session to support our minds & nervous systems. Exchange is $10, with all proceeds going toward climate and racial justice. We've raised over $1500 in the past few months... thank you!
Do something nice for both your body and mind today.
Add some lemon to your water.
Take five minutes to breathe gently while listening to a beautiful song.

We are each other's keepers in this time.
