ARCHIVE STUDIO CLOSURE
It's hard to believe it's been a month, we are slowly finding our way...
Thank you for continuing to work with us through all of the technical challenges and the learning curve. We are slowly learning what works and doesn't work. For example, music doesn't carry well through Zoom. Going from Zoom to LIVE on social media channels doesn't work. That we needed a better camera. That we needed to invest in a microphone. That we want to see your lovely faces on the calls, so we could be in community together. That we want to replicate interaction just like in the studio. The list goes on and on. That it's hard to teach and look at a camera at the same time you look at a computer to see what your students are doing.
But we are here holding space for a beautiful unfolding during these difficult times. You keep us plugging along! You are the reason we won't give up and keep on keepin on!
Passover is one of the most important Jewish religious observances. In Christianity, it revolves around the sacrifice of Jesus for the forgiveness of our sins. During the pandemic of Covid 19, we can use the concept of "Passover" symbolically to observe what needs to die within ourselves in our collective evolution and consciousness. What needs to be observed within your own spirit? What sacrifices are you making for the greater good of all? Are you being asked to observe something greater that you cannot yet see? Where are you placing your faith in your evolution? What do you symbolically need to pass over or pass through in your own mind, body and spirit? Are you using this pandemic to access your own higher truth, connection to God or Consciousness?
Wim Hof Breathing
Assume a comfortable seat. Fully inhale through the belly, then chest and let go of the breath unforced. Repeat this 30 times in short, powerful bursts. After the last exhalation, inhale one final time, as deeply as you can. Then let all of the air out and stop breathing. Hold the breath until you feel the urge to breath again. When you feel the urge to breath again, draw one big breath to fill your lungs. When you are at full capacity, hold the breath for 15 seconds and then let go. On your own, you can complete the cycle 3 to 4 times.
