Ecstatic breathwork combines breathing and meditation to reset body and mind. Focused intentional breathing disciplines overactive thinking, clears toxic thoughts, moves energy, and releases emotional blocks. After setting a clear intention, the breathing technique is employed to tune in, turn on (our own healing ability), and drop out of old habits to be able to meditate. This practice aids in the release of unnecessary judgments, fear, and expectations to open the doors of perception and joy. It rebalances the nervous system, oxygenates the body, and releases endorphins. We then experience greater mental clarity, deeper relaxation, and bliss. It is a fast and effective way of bringing us into a fully present state. Wear comfortable clothes. Optional: bring a yoga mat, towel. Kombucha will be served.
The Expo is a three-day gathering of individuals and tribes for a three-day celebration of conscious evolution and a brainstorming session on where we are and where we are going. We live in an evolving universe, an orgasmic dance of consciousness. Everything is changing, evolving, transforming. Wise people throughout history have tried to define the nature of the reality, and myriad models have existed for it. But we are creating a new model still being figured out. This conference is for us to participate in the conscious co-creation of a new sustainable world that merges science and spirituality -- a wholistic, powerful, and passionate celebration of life and love. https://expo.consciouslifeexpo.com/ https://expo.consciouslifeexpo.com/expo-at-a-glance/
We have meditation sessions on M, T, W, and Th. See here: https://www.uclahealth.org/marc/body.cfm?id=61&iirf_redirect=1 (http://marc.ucla.edu/free-drop-in-meditation). Mindful Awareness (what Eckhart Tolle calls "presence") is the moment-by-moment process of openly accepting and observing our physical, mental, and emotional experiences without grasping/clinging, resisting/rejecting, or reacting with delusion/confusion to them. Mindfulness, which the Buddha called smrti and sati, has scientific support as a means of reducing stress, improving attention, boosting mood and the immune system, reducing emotional reactivity, and promoting general health and well-being. Drop-in sessions are led by Diana Winston, Dr. Marvin Belzer, and guest teachers (at MARC, Mindful Awareness Research Center). Open to everyone interested in learning how to live life more in the "present."
