Moving Meditation - perfect for a daily practice
Perfect for anyone who is after mindful movement to find connection to your body and focus of your mind. This practice is very popular by my students. It is best to practice a few days in a row to familiarise yourself with the movement so that the focus can stay drawn inwards. Perfect for an early morning practice before seated meditation. This practice is inspired by various teachings I have received from Shiva Ra and her beautiful partner Demetri Velisarius, whom I'm so grateful for to be my teachers. ———————- May I be a guardian for those who need protection A guide for those who’ve lost their way A bridge for those desiring to travel to the further shores A ship for those with oceans to cross A healing medicine - full of kindness and compassion A lamp in the darkness A refuge for those who seek shelter Planting the seed, to rise up as the awakened one May my heart be a vase of plenty My life be a tree of miracles And for the multitude of living beings May I provide Sustenance and awareness Until all are awakened and free ———————- Based on Shanti Deva’s prayer as taught to me by Demetri Velisarius
