||CleanSamskara: Excavating and Renovating your Subconscious Mind||How do you overhaul your subconscious habits when they’re no longer serve you? In this live recording of a meditation session, we cover several techniques. Samskaras are the psychic grooves we create by thinking the same thoughts over and over. Our mind has the potential to shift to a different groove. You’ll try variations of three part breath, and chant the Sa Ta Na Ma meditation. Finally, enjoy a grounding relaxation to continue the process of healing your subconscious mind. The edit is a little choppy, since I cut voices to maintain the anonymity of the meditation group attendees.||2/14/2019||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanAhimsa. Apply the yogic value of non-harming to your life.||Yamas are the yogic values you can use as a guide in relationships. The first is Ahimsa: Non-harming of self and others. Where do you turn harm inward? How do you lash out or unconsciously cause harm? You’re not alone. Criticism, in my experience, doesn’t help. What has helped me develop empathy is self compassion, therapy, and, especially, meditation. Join me in this practice of unflinching self care.||2/8/2019||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanDischarging stress, health, happiness, longing and belonging.||This meandering talk starts by examining tension, then asks what is health really? Happiness? We explore difficult emotions, reactivity, the limbic brain and the buffering effect of community. What would it be like to be seen in our wholeness? I describe a grounding, restorative pose and a simple activity for discharging stress. Please join me!||1/16/2019||Free||View in iTunes|
I’ve been thinking about these things a lot lately and your experience with moving stress from the limbus brain out of your body is really helpful.
Great podcast! Very calming and helps you feel connected.
