Thich Nhat Hanh – Body and Breath
Thich Nhat Hanh has said:
"To practice mindfulness of the body, follow your breathing and focus your attention on each part of the body, from the hair on your head to the soles of your feet. Breathe mindfully and embrace each part of the body with the energy of mindfulness, smiling to it with recognition and love… Identify the form elements in your body: earth, water, air, and heat. See the connection of these four elements inside and outside of your body. See the living presence of your ancestors and future generations, as well as the presence of all other beings in the animal, vegetal, and mineral realms. Become aware of the positions of your body (standing, sitting, walking, lying down) and its movements (bending, stretching, taking a shower, getting dressed, eating, working, etc.). When you master this practice, you will be able to be aware of your feelings and your perceptions as they arise, and you will be able to practice looking deeply into them."
The words of the great spiritual teacher Thich Nhat Hanh perfectly encapsulate the goal of this Spring Breath Awareness retreat 13-20 October 2018.
All the great Eastern traditions - yoga, Taoism, Buddhism - recognise the importance of awareness of the breath and its relationship with body, mind and emotions. Modern Breathwork practice is a powerful way to increase that awareness and knowledge.
