Ongoing Creation Practice
inspired by Radiance Sutra #68:
Savor the sound of h h h a a a....
Softly continuing, resonating through
All the nerves of the body, permeating,
For this practice, we will be using
sound to energetically
sense expansion and
condensing of breath.
Come to a comfortable seat.
Or lie down in Constructive Rest Posture.
Begin when ready, no rush.
Take several steady, conscious breaths.
Allow your hands to touch
belly or ribs, anywhere to
feel with more definition
the breath moving.
Notice the sound of the breath;
the sound of inhale...
the sound of exhale.
Conscious Inhales and Conscious Exhales.
Notice the pauses at top of the
inhales and bottom of the exhales.
Notice the different sounds of
the breath elements.
The inhale sound
the pause sound
the exhale sound.
On the next exhale, say softly to
yourself , "sahhhhhhh".
As the inhale begins, say softly
to yourself "hah-mmmmmm".
Gentle quiet in the pause....
Repeat for several breaths.
Notice the sounds of breath.
Notice all the center to periphery energy expansions,
and the periphery to center energy returnings.
Rest in the sounds of the breath.
After this practice, you could:
Take a Savasana
Journal about the experience
Move into an Asana Practice
End the Practice Session and
Live your Yoga.
