Mon, April 13, 2020 ~ Dancing Water Daily ~ Nourishing Movement: Calm is Contagious

Dr. Brene Brown is one of my sheros. Her research in vulnerability, shame, courage and leadership inspires me to show up more fully and to recognize my patterns especially in stressful situations. A friend recently turned me on to Dr. Brown’s podcast, Unlocking Us which I’m loving. In this episode, she talks about calm as a practice…and a contagion.

Dr. Brown defines calm as “creating perspective and mindfulness, while managing emotional reactivity” and suggests that calm is less of a state that we are and a practice that we do. In our mindful movement, I invite a connection with the physical sensation of calm. Where do you feel it in your body and what quality does it have? If you feel it in one place, can you let it spread to others? If you feel it, could you let it spread to the people around you? Let’s practice calm together. Please find the video here.

Help me sustain your Dancing Water Daily practices! No matter how far apart we are physically, we are all connected. The path that we all move along together is held by an Invisible Net of Love that is always there even if we can’t see it. The Dancing Water Daily practices is my thread in that net. Please support my work by offering a donation so I can keep creating these practices for you. With your generous support, I can continue to invest in making these classes available to anyone who can benefit. Please click here https://paypal.me/SusanMcCulley?locale.x=en_US to be part of the Dancing Water Daily Net of Love. And please “Send to a Friend” to avoid PayPal fees!
