“To stop your mind does not mean to stop the activities of the mind. It means your mind pervades your whole body." - Shunryu Suzuki, Zen Master

"Happiness is not an individual matter. When you are able to bring relief, or bring back the smile to one person, not only that person profits, but you also profit. The deepest happiness you can have comes from that capacity to help relieve the suffering of others. So if we have the habit of being peace, then there is a natural tendency for us to go in the direction of service.” - Thich Nhat Hanh

The Power of the Pause: Breathing Room Online

Free class for returning & retuning with 360 Degree Breathing

With so much anxiety and uncertainty presently in the world, the return to the breathing body in the company of others online is a much-needed soulful sanctuary and an oasis of calm, clarity and ease.

These hour-long online gatherings are guided in real-time to offer a practical experience of collaborating with your breathing to dissipate anxiety and stabilize attention.

The session will consist of a 5-minute introduction, a 45-minute experience with a primary focus on 360 degree breathing and individual variations, and 10 minutes for reflection.

Give yourself the gift of a pause and journey inside your breathing body!

Open to all levels of experience, this session is a stand-alone event as well as a taste of the Thinking Body, Sensing Mind online series.

Please watch this 2 minute 3D view of diaphragm video before the session to get an inside view of what we will be exploring.
