Excerpt from a class:
Alan Bowers, MM, M.AmSAT
You are a plaything in Earth’s game of push me pull me. All the bodies in your universe have mass. They’re invisibly attracting you, pulling you toward them, orienting you. Every action that you conceive, every word that you say ripples through that universe and that universe through you. The cost of claiming that mutual influence, is merely and awesomely your mindfulness.
The air around you has weight, about 2 pounds per square yard. When you walk you are an efficient little air plow, the displaced air swirling around and behind you. Some yoga practitioners claim that they can sense that pressure and are oriented by it. You can claim that for your good self. Air is leaning on you right now like the water that leans on a buoy. My advice, lean back, omni-directionally. Release your expanding greater self into the greater expanding universe. Imagine a sea of benevolent hands about you, buoying you up. You’ll live move, breathe, and act with the consciousness of the universe. Is your breathing a bit better, now? Call me. A lesson in person or by Zoom, $125
The virtuous circle The arc of our lives is inscribed in a breath. At our birth, we inspire and at our deaths we expire, inspiration/expiration. Free the breath. Free your body. Free your voice. Free your breath, a virtuous circle. You’ll begin to live in its circumference at your first lesson. Call me.
