What are you birthing as this new year begins? How do you feel about it? 2020 was a challenging year probably for all of us and we may have hopes for 2021 being different. How do we generate that difference?
The way we meet, expect, hope for or reject change and transition tend to reflect our experience of our very early transition out of the womb at birth. At that point, a phase of life ended and a new one began. There is within us a natural knowing of how to birth and how to be birthed. Various conditions, including modern medical management and beliefs about birth, can undermine or interfere with that natural knowing, establishing tendencies for how we engage with each birth and transition throughout our lives.
How do you meet what is new or unfamiliar in your life?
Continuum teaches us to embrace, welcome and even enjoy what is novel and unknown. We practice orienting to what is not habit, pattern or unconscious repetition. We learn to bring awareness to each moment, each movement of the body, each breath, the vibration of every sound we make.
In Continuum we use different breaths, sounding, movement and mindful awareness to slow down and deepen under our everyday habitual ways of doing, letting go into more nurturing ways of being and renewal as we return to our original fluid nature and its bio-intelligence.
“I say all form is temporal. Form is designed to dissolve and reconstitute in a perpetual act of renewal.”
– Emilie Conrad, Founder of Continuum
