Pandiculate for Peace
Peace is an Inside Job.
Greetings from Portland OR. Just to let you know, we aren't in the midst of a riot-infested wasteland. Things are tense, and I worry about what will unfold next. But I want you to know that some media outlets are lying to you about what's really happening here. If you want some facts here you go and more here.
I constantly look at the state of the world, especially right now, through a somatic lens.
See, in the Somatics world we never fight tension with more tension. That just creates--you guessed it--more tension!
The world is in a huge contraction and tensions are high. And things just seem to be escalating.
That's not to say that anger and pushing back are bad.
They just don't do us any good if that's all we know how to do. Like the saying goes, "If all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail." This goes for both sides of any oppositional issue.
Again, in the Somatics realm we never push, fight against tension, or inflict pain to get out of pain. Somatics is highly effective because we are working with the brain and nervous system, the creator of all motor and thought patterns, to shift our bodies and minds to a state of peace and ease, rest and restore.
An ideal place to work from if you want to create more peace in the world, don't you think?
I could go on and on. But I'll just say, I'm here to help you help yourself. If you are looking for a way to downshift to a more rational, restorative state of being, I'll see you online for class.
peace to you all,
