Steph: Nature is said to be our greatest teacher. But what to do when you live in a shoe(box) in a concrete jungle? In part 1, we’ll dive into our own physicality to uncover connections that tie us to nature, through the exploration of the five elements.
Erin: In this sit, we’ll explore tactile experiences of nature. First we’ll hold a rock in our hands, and connect to it’s solid stability. Then we’ll bring our hands to our hearts, and feel the flow within us.
Avi: It’s a spiritual cliché that we hold our issues in our tissues. Well, it’s a cliché for a reason. In tonight’s meditation we’ll notice where unconscious parts are hiding out in our body and work with attentional techniques to begin to break apart our defensive holding patterns.
Jeff: Hello Exploded Brains! My own exploded brain wishes to communicate with you, but (on account of said explosion) I find myself unable to summon the necessary resources. Fortunately, like all of us, I have a strange nature-given capacity to un-plode myself. Call it focus, call it absorption. As I commit myself to the activity at hand, I can almost feel the various task-relevant parts of my brain, body, and attention all converge and synchronize. In this way, moment by moment, we secure the world in front of us. “Traveler, there is no path – the path is made by walking.” – Antonia Machado. Join me as we explore this everyday miracle.
