00:00:02,070 –> 00:00:06,629
this is Judith Peterson and I’m going to

2
00:00:06,629 –> 00:00:11,009
work with you with some body awareness

3
00:00:11,009 –> 00:00:16,779
exercise that brings us deep relaxation

4
00:00:16,779 –> 00:00:21,790
and in touch with greater energy I’ve

5
00:00:21,790 –> 00:00:25,300
studied many modes of body work but one

6
00:00:25,300 –> 00:00:27,550
of my great teachers was named tilde

7
00:00:27,550 –> 00:00:31,540
guard Ellsberg and this is in her style

8
00:00:31,540 –> 00:00:38,620
and very much dedicated to her so we’re

9
00:00:38,620 –> 00:00:41,500
going to obey gravity with our bodies

10
00:00:41,500 –> 00:00:46,740
and you’ll need to sit in a chair and

11
00:00:47,040 –> 00:00:51,340
sit at the edge of the chair this is so

12
00:00:51,340 –> 00:00:56,320
your or a stool perhaps so that you’re

13
00:00:56,320 –> 00:00:58,900
not leaning back at all because we want

14
00:00:58,900 –> 00:01:03,239
to find the vertical

15
00:01:08,560 –> 00:01:13,869
and when you get in your chair sit so

16
00:01:13,869 –> 00:01:17,289
that you are over the sitting bones

17
00:01:17,289 –> 00:01:20,110
these great bones at the top of your

18
00:01:20,110 –> 00:01:24,430
thighs and from there you will rise

19
00:01:24,430 –> 00:01:28,479
vertically and be able to feel that up

20
00:01:28,479 –> 00:01:32,590
and down this with your feet flat on the

21
00:01:32,590 –> 00:01:37,420
floor and then when you find that

22
00:01:37,420 –> 00:01:44,740
vertical we’re going to descend I’ll be

23
00:01:44,740 –> 00:01:46,780
having my eyes shut for this and you

24
00:01:46,780 –> 00:01:52,330
will too when you practice so just with

25
00:01:52,330 –> 00:01:56,530
your eyes shut allow yourself to obey

26
00:01:56,530 –> 00:02:02,049
gravity you might first release your

27
00:02:02,049 –> 00:02:07,799
feet and feel them almost as if they are

28
00:02:07,799 –> 00:02:14,530
down on and into the ground sometimes I

29
00:02:14,530 –> 00:02:18,810
imagine this as being like a tree that’s

30
00:02:18,810 –> 00:02:24,040
very anchored in the ground and then let

31
00:02:24,040 –> 00:02:29,079
drop the weight in your legs the shins

32
00:02:29,079 –> 00:02:34,930
and the thighs the heavy legs let them

33
00:02:34,930 –> 00:02:42,850
also obey gravity and feel what that

34
00:02:42,850 –> 00:02:48,900
feels like and then let your pelvis

35
00:02:48,900 –> 00:02:59,850
descend and your torso let that sink

36
00:03:00,880 –> 00:03:07,550
and all the organs in the torso they too

37
00:03:07,550 –> 00:03:15,940
are invited to relax and obey gravity

38
00:03:15,940 –> 00:03:25,520
and your hands and arms and shoulders we

39
00:03:25,520 –> 00:03:32,840
are releasing it to gravity as you do

40
00:03:32,840 –> 00:03:37,310
this you may start to feel energy coming

41
00:03:37,310 –> 00:03:47,360
in as it will the energy body can be

42
00:03:47,360 –> 00:03:52,820
felt as we release our weight and now

43
00:03:52,820 –> 00:04:00,470
let the chin relax and the face the

44
00:04:00,470 –> 00:04:06,370
scalp the brain

45
00:04:10,100 –> 00:04:15,900
but the energy come into the whole being

46
00:04:15,900 –> 00:04:28,470
the whole body and just relax receptive

47
00:04:28,470 –> 00:04:37,920
to the energy that flows and people can

48
00:04:37,920 –> 00:04:41,790
sit like this for a long time if they

49
00:04:41,790 –> 00:04:47,940
wish or it can be restorative to do in

50
00:04:47,940 –> 00:04:50,690
small pieces

51
00:05:04,960 –> 00:05:10,569
like you to imagine that your surface of

52
00:05:10,569 –> 00:05:15,479
your body is very connected to the air

53
00:05:17,099 –> 00:05:20,349
but most of your body is connected to

54
00:05:20,349 –> 00:05:24,430
the air and you can imagine yourself a

55
00:05:24,430 –> 00:05:29,770
creature of the air and you can imagine

56
00:05:29,770 –> 00:05:35,430
your skin as being full of little noses

57
00:05:35,430 –> 00:05:41,800
all of whom are breathing this air and

58
00:05:41,800 –> 00:05:49,030
just enjoy that connection your skin as

59
00:05:49,030 –> 00:05:51,880
noses breathing the air that is

60
00:05:51,880 –> 00:06:02,280
surrounding you and just experience that

61
00:06:08,100 –> 00:06:16,680
I will notice how the body feels the

62
00:06:16,680 –> 00:06:24,780
body had a word what might it be I’m

63
00:06:24,780 –> 00:06:29,010
going to leave you in your body

64
00:06:29,010 –> 00:06:33,780
awareness meditation and you can sit in

65
00:06:33,780 –> 00:06:39,540
that posture for as long as you wish and

66
00:06:39,540 –> 00:06:44,760
receive that deeper energy from beneath

67
00:06:44,760 –> 00:06:52,590
and around you this can relax you and

68
00:06:52,590 –> 00:06:56,010
replenish your energy whenever you need

69
00:06:56,010 –> 00:07:00,840
it for a long or short time assistant

70
00:07:00,840 –> 00:07:03,710
Peterson

71
00:07:09,440 –> 00:00:00,000
you
