The beginning of a new year is a good time to observe how we are with new beginnings. How we move through transitions, including from one year to the next, often relates to how we experienced our first big transition, coming into life at birth. How is the new year for you? How consciously do you engage with the reminder of change, the invitation to start something new, like with new year’s resolutions? Traditions of drinking and partying to all hours and then slumping in front of the TV for a day afterwards may be echoes of being anaesthetised at birth.
How interested are you in what is unfamiliar to you? Continuum supports our ability to pay attention to what we don’t usually attend to, to slow down and melt under the automatising fast pace of everyday life, and to enhance our health and resilience through returning to our natural fluidity.
