For these autumnal days, I would like to share with you some inputs I got from an article by Kate Yoder about subtraction (1).
We all know this pearl of wisdom saying “less is more”. However, I guess we can all experience how difficult can be to apply this in our life. Think about how we easily tend to do more, to buy more, to have more, to need more. In our attention the automatic mechanism works by adding and the subtract option is much less obvious.
Two years ago, we presented the Drawdown project. The aim of this project is to help the world reach “Drawdown”— the point in the future when levels of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere stop climbing and start to steadily decline, thereby stopping catastrophic climate change — as quickly, safely and equitably as possible. I am very happy to inform you that this project is still dynamic and active. New material has been put together in 6 units, developing 6 different topics about climate change.
But how this topic is connected with bodyawareness and being aware of our automatic pattern?
In our two previous articles we focused first on the calming breathing practice and then on exhaling. Today, the last article of the respiration series, inspired by James Nestor (∆) will focus on the activating quick breathing. [Weiterlesen]
This is the second article about the breathing training series. As I said in my previous article, I have some new material that provides us some new options for training with our most underestimate ability: the breathe (∆).
Today, we will focus on the exhaling part of breathing. [Weiterlesen]
Spring is here! This is the ideal time to start to train something new!
I am very happy to have some new material (1) about the old, underestimated, taken for granted, vital ability: THE BREATH!
I will dedicate this and the two following articles to show some practices to work with this essential function. Breathing is a bridge into the body and this bridge can take many forms.
Today I would like to focus on the deep slow breathing. [Weiterlesen]
In the last 2 articles we talked about how reading and actively listening to music contribute to creating a calm experience.
Probably, to achieve these experiences easier, it is also important to address another pragmatic aspect: how to take care of the physical space around us. How to take care of our “home”.
As many people are now in home-office, and probably all of us are spending more time at home, it is worth to reflect about how the physical space contributes, or not, to enhance calmness. And how it is possible to transform daily tasks in a positive ritual so to transit from a section of the day to the next. [Weiterlesen]
