BREATH OF PROTECTION
As you invoke the energy of a new day, season or cycle in your life, you may feel called toward a daily practice that protects and strengthens your bodymind and spirit. As night turns into day and cycles of death give birth to new life, fresh energy will become available to you. The following eco-breath practice is a simple way to protect yourself energetically, to build vitality in the body, and to nurture your connection to the healing power of nature.
This simple Eco-Somatic Practice is inspired by the Autumn Equinox and is an exercise you can do to align your energy body and nervous system to the subtle shifts taking place collectively. You may also wish to incorporate this practice into an Autumn Equinox Ritual.
Invoking and somatically sensing greater balance into your life is one way to mark the shift into Autumn and prepare your bodymind for the coming darkness.
