1. “Nothing.” Our minds tend to be crowded by assumptions, worries, and judgments, with inevitable effects on our behaviors in daily life. We’ll practice a series of exercises that allow us to un-crowd our minds until “nothing is there.” Then we can start having fresh, useful, creative, constructive thoughts!
2. Breathing. We’ll practice a series of exercises that help you breathe without even having to think about breathing.
3. “The Invisible Helper.” Your coordination and your personality are reflected in the way you occupy space in the world. Do you make yourself big, or do you make yourself small? Do you expand or do you contract? With the help of objects from daily life, we’ll broaden our perception of skull, neck, throat, sternum, ribcage, diaphragm, hips, and other bodily territories, until we become spacious and expansive in both body and mind.
This workshop corresponds to module #5 in the INTEGRATED PRACTICE training.
