Sari's Quick Tip:
One Purposeful Breath
In just a few weeks, I will be heading to the tiny village of Kiental, Switzerland to assist Michael Shea, PhD
with a Byodynamic Craniosacral Therapy course. http://michaelsheateaching.com/
The course centers around The Long Tide, Primary Respiration, Meditative Slowing and Stillness.
The Kientalerhof Retreat Center is one of the most serene locations in the world, located in an untouched area of the Swiss Alps.
And yet, I find myself rushing around to be prepared.
Rushing to be prepared for slowing?
There's a contrast worthy of some thought.
Rushing vs. Slowing.
How can I make the transition?
Just one purposeful breath helps to bring me back to present time.
Just one purposeful breath already helps me feel more calm.
Just one purposeful breath.
Do you have time for just one purposeful breath?
Enjoy the Journey!
Be Grounded, Present, Centered and Calm.
*Remember to plan ahead
! I will be out of the office May 15th-29th and will have limited access to technology while traveling. The Sari Hands PLC
Newsletter will resume in June with new tips and a fresh perspective!
Spotlight on a Satisfied Client*
This is a series of texts with a client visiting from N.C for an annual golf tourney with his dad:
The morning after:
'Hey Sari, this is Tom IV. my neck does feel better this a.m. First time I can say that after therapy.
Looking forward to seeing how it feels on my backswing after my miserable round yesterday. Thanks Sari! So far, so good.'
A few days later:
'Hey Sari. My neck really did feel better the next day and was near normal for the Saturday round. Whether or not that was why I played so well is unknown. But I can certainly say that my neck was sore and getting worse over the past months. Within hours of my session, it was feeling better, and significantly better the next morning. By the second day I no longer felt the pain during my backswing. That same day I shot my best round in years and our team set a tournament record for points and we made a huge comeback, placing second in the tournament!'
A week later:
'Sari, my neck is back to normal with no pain. Thanks again!' Tom
