“Fear is the direct experience of the unknown.” ~ Adyashanti

Move with friendliness, curiosity and kindness with fear and whatever else arises in today’s All Out All You Dance Party practice. By anchoring attention on the physical core of the body – the pelvis, chest and head – emotions and sensations that arise there can move. Rather than resisting or bracing or clenching, the choice is there to be with…whether it feels awkward, amazing, uncomfortable, or pleasurable. Dive in with me by going to the video here.

Fear and love are two of the most primal human emotions and we need them both. Our mindfulness practice is about allowing them to be present, even welcoming them with friendliness. I can’t banish fear – it’s impossible – but I can let it be present without running the show.

Elizabeth Gilbert, in her book Big Magic says fear can be in the car but it can’t drive. She writes,

The less I fight my fear, the less it fights back. If I can relax, fear relaxes, too.

I imagine taking the temper tantruming bundle of my fears, zipping them into a soft snowsuit and buckling them into a car seat. They may cry and yell for a while but if I just keep going, moving where I want to go while murmuring kindness to them (“I know, sweetie. I know. It’s really hard.”), that bundle of terror will eventually calm down, stare out the window and count license plates.

Today’s Nourishing Movement class anchors on the core of the body where these core emotions reside. Moving with awareness and friendliness allows fear and love and whatever else arises to move through. No need to fight it or resist or kick it out of the car. Wrap it with kindness, buckle it in and move with it. You can find the video here.

Love


Many teachers remind me that every choice – every single choice – either comes from love or fear. I resisted the heck out of this idea for a while (still do, sometimes) — how could it be that simple? But when I really pay attention, I can feel it. Even if the action is the same (say, eating a salad for lunch), when I do it out of love (as in, I totally LOVE how delicious and nourishing this is!) it feels completely different than if I do it out of fear (as in, I better eat a salad or I’ll gain weight.).

We’re all always dancing between fear and love. They are the big, primal human emotions. And fear can be easy to be swept up in. The more we’re aware of what fear and love feel like in the body, the more we can, welcome them both with friendliness and compassion. With awareness, we can as Dr. Vivek Murthy says, “tilt the world toward love.”

Today’s Nourishing Movement practice offers guided movement anchored on the core of the body where the strong emotions of love, fear and friendliness all reside. You can find the video here.

For a great look at fear and how to welcome it in, check out the latest Embrace Your Wierd podcast with Lisa Jakub. You can find it here.

“Your heart is the size of an ocean. Go find yourself in its hidden depths.” ~ Rumi

We are always sinking and floating. These two dynamics are happening all the time in body, mind and heart. In today’s All Out All You Dance Party, I offer a sea of sound and some light guidance for you to move in ways that feel just right for you just now. Use this practice to find yourself in the hidden depths of sensation and presence. Find the video here.

A simple practice to assist in dropping into sensation are AAA: Arrive, Awareness, and Anchor. Whenever you feel you’ve wandered off from presence, let yourself arrive again, choose to land in the experience. Then intentionally open your awareness, and then anchor that awareness. For today’s practice, we anchor on the sensations of and balance between sink and float. But other anchors could be your breath, sound, sensations, thoughts, or whatever allows you to steady yourself…until you wander away again!

Sink into safety, relaxation, connection. Float into openness, perspective, possibility. I’d love to hear how it goes for you. Please leave a comment below.

Our bodies are designed to move up and down in relationship to gravity. Muscles and hearts and lungs gain strength and length by sinking and floating. It’s not just our bodies, though. Our minds and hearts also go up and down – perhaps especially in these times of predictable unpredictability.

Today’s Dharma Dance Swirl practice anchors on the movements, sensations and benefits of sinking and floating by integrating guided and unguided movement. The invitation is to sink into the structure and patterns so you can float into what you need in every moment. Find the video here.

Leonardo da Vinci captured it well:

The air moves like a river and carries the clouds with it; just as running water carries all the things that float upon it.

Use this practice to feel both grounded and free, both substantive and light, both supported and independent. I’d love to hear how you sink and float through it! Please leave a comment below!

The body sinks and floats. Moving the body up and down improves strength and flexibility, and heart and lung health. In gravity, sinking and floating depend on each other. One part sinks and another floats. There is no floating without sinking and no sinking without floating.

But these days it’s not just my body that is sinking and floating, it’s my mind and heart, too. My heart sinks after reading a headline. My mind floats in distraction. My awareness sinks into what is happening. My imagination floats into a wider, more creative perspective. Sinking and floating are happening simultaneously all the time. There is not one without the other.

In today’s Nourishing Movement practice, we’ll allow ourselves to ride on the waves of sinking and floating and notice the sensations in body, mind and heart. Find the video here.

If you are feeling anxious and tender as you practice, I offer this image (inspired by On Being interview with David Steindl-Rast): imagine dropping worry, fear and grief into a deep, still, clear lake. Let it slowly sink to the bottom and then see what floats to the surface.

These days, when someone asks me how I am, most often I say, “I’m up and down.” It’s my tendency all the time, but right now, it’s particularly pronounced. At the same time my emotions and thoughts are cresting and crashing, I’m also building a restorative yoga practice for myself and my community. Every time I get on my mat, I notice that I’m always both sinking and floating.

Up and down. The body needs both. When we sink and float, the body gains strength and flexibility, as well as cardiovascular and breath capacity. Sinking and floating creates more physical balance and health.

In today’s Nourishing Movement experience, we’ll anchor our attention on the physical sensations and benefits of sinking and floating. Find the video here.
