2018-06-16 Meditation - Breath Energy All Body 43:51
Using imaginal feeling to breath in ways beyond an anatomical understanding is easier, and more natural, than it sounds. We can attune to the breath as a movement of energy, which can enliven and relieve body tension. We can still the heart-mind and resolve the body contraction, while cultivating an unshakeable attentiveness. In this way we bring nourishment and a sense of greater aliveness with the in breath expansion, as well as letting be and relaxation on the out breath release.
