From the Practice

All of us come into the world on an umbilical cord. All of us do. So let’s connect to that life source.

Whether you are in the basement, whether you are on the 20th floor, the floor is Earth. The wood is Earth. The concrete is Earth. The linoleum, all of this comes from the Earth. 

Have the sense of drinking the energy of the Earth through your navel, as you breathe in. And as you exhale, letting go of any distress that the body held onto at birth.
