In class our focus has been on Spring renewal - we have been practicing lightening up as we come out of Winter. This means a letting go and unburdening of anything we are carrying around that does not support our wellbeing and our highest Self.
This meditation can be used as a seated practice or a guided relaxation lying down in savasana. It is drawn from the Tibetan Buddhist tradition - I find it an extremely purifying practice that helps me shift negative thoughts and emotions that might be crowding my mind. In dealing with some difficult emotions these past few weeks, the practice has helped me process these and free myself of a negative thought pattern. It has left me feeling lighter, cleansed and calm again.
