Anatomical Activities: 

Coloring the Lobes

There are PDFs you can print and color

for Anatomical Embodiment Meditation. 

Click on the images below. 

If you remember something more readily after handwriting it on paper, 

then you understand the power of knowing via hand-to-brain coordination. 

You could color each lobe in different colors, which to you express the quality of their different energetics. 

You could color the coordinating ribs which articulate with each individual lobe. 

The PDFs also depict the embryology of the lungs as well as 

the beauty of the Cochae.

Touch-to-Feel: Haptics

(Front Body) Place your hands on each of the Lung Lobes via the Ribs. 

Breathe into the space beneath your hands, and feel the movement for several moments.  

Do this for each of the three lobes, for a several moments each. 

As you breathe into your lobes, look at the colored lung lobes schematic,

using it to layer your perceptible sensations and visualization of the movements. 

(Back Body) Fold a blanket or towel into a narrow fold. 

Come into Constructive Rest Posture  and place the narrow-fold support: 

(1) Under the wide bottom of the rib basket. Breathe there for several moments. 

(2) Under the Mid-Back Ribs & Bottom 1/3 of Shoulder Blades. Breathe. 

(3) Under the Upper Shoulders and curve of the neck. Breathe. 

As you breathe into your hands, look at the colored lung lobes schematic,

using it to layer your perceptible sensations and visualization of the movements.
