Who Are We

We are an ever-expanding group of people of the world with a deep connection to Aotearoa.

 

Gentle Breath Meditation™

The Gentle Breath Meditation™ is a very practical tool to support our connection, or re-connection, to the breath, the body and our essence.

 

The Gentle Breath Meditation™ can be done in 10 minutes, or less, at the start of the day and/or at the end of the day, or in fact at any time. Taking a moment to breathe our own breath brings us instantly back to our self with the quality of gentleness bringing a feeling of harmony to our body. See what others have to say about the Gentle Breath Meditation™ here.

 You may like to explore further information on meditation here.

 

Esoteric Yoga

Esoteric Yoga, or the Yoga of Stillness is another way to build and develop a connection to your body and your essence. Yoga simply means union and this unique and gentle form of yoga is about supporting us to return to the stillness that is naturally within us all where can feel deeply the truth of who we are. It is a modality that supports us to develop body awareness, gentleness, conscious presence and stillness. This modality supports us to develop self-care and self-love as nurse and Esoteric Yoga presenter Fiona Lotherington explains in this article Your body tells the truth.

 

Gentle Walking

Walking is not only great exercise but is a powerful way to connect with our body when we choose to walk gently without anywhere to be and without headphones in our ears or a phone in our pocket. Instead, we can choose to bring our awareness to how our feet feel when they connect with the ground, how our arms feel as they swing by our side or even the gentle feel of the air on our cheeks. When we walk in this way we can experience the gentleness and harmony that is naturally within us. Joshua Campbell shares here how walking in this way allowed him to feel who he truly is.

 

Conscious Presence

Conscious Presence is the practice of training the mind to be present with the body as we go about our activities. For example, if we are driving our car our mind is with us as we drive as opposed to driving and thinking about what we need to do at work. Most of us would easily be able to give examples of when our mind is wandering all over the place while we are physically in one place engaged in a particular activity.

We can develop conscious presence by making a conscious choice to check in on our mind and bring it back to being present with what we are doing at the time. The Gentle Breath Meditation™ presented here also specifically supports the development of conscious presence.

 

Taking moments

Stopping, even for a minute or two, can support us to connect to our body but it seems many of us find it difficult to stop as shared here by someone learning to stop. Yet stopping allows us space to feel what is needed next and starts to build a way of being that honours what our body needs in any given moment.

For example, you’ve unloaded the groceries from the car and the next step is to put them away. Imagine before putting them away that you stop for a moment and ask yourself what you actually feel to do – you might discover you need to sit for a minute to rest, or you’d like a cup of tea or you might be ready to put the groceries away. By stopping, we can be guided by our body.

Even in our increasingly busy lives stop moments can be incorporated into our day if we choose. You can start with just one somewhere in your day. Or we can become of aware of the moments of pause offered to us in our day described in this blog about appreciating the times when we’re forced to slow down or wait in a queue.

 

Body Awareness

Body awareness is about being aware of our posture, our breathing, the quality of our movements and what we are feeling as we go about our daily activities. This can be as simple as bringing our attention to our hands or fingertips as we open a door, wash the dishes, or drive the car. We can choose to start the day by taking a moment to bring our attention to the body before getting out of bed and becoming aware of how it is feeling. Body awareness is not necessarily about changing what we feel but simply becoming aware of what’s happening in the body. From there the choice is ours.
