This week I had a lymphatic drainage massage. As I was appreciating the subtle, gentle attention to the quiet presence & flow of lymph, I was reminded of how the movement explorations and qigong practices of HappyBelly! also give opportunity to attend to the fluid dynamics occurring within. When I cultivate deep listening with and to my fluid self, I feel more easeful and more present. And so, I am looking forward to continued attunement to the element of water with the next HappyBelly! class; Deep Reservoirs, on Thursday evening, February 28th.
I was doing a set of healing sounds the other day, and the harmonization of the movement, my breath and my energy allowed my mind to become quiet. I felt a body an expansion of my energy that I can only describe as a body-wide smile. Half an hour and I felt calm, refocused and (truly) happy in my body. I wonder why I don’t give myself that gift more often?
