Breathwork At The Aspen Chapel with Eliza Kane

[su_quote cite=”Dalai Lama “]Calm mind brings inner strength and self-confidence, so that’s very important for good health. [/su_quote]

It seems as though with each transitional season we fool ourselves into thinking that life will slow down, but rather, life escalates. Lately, my conversations with others have consisted of quiet confessions of self-preservation, and how to stay sane and on top of it all lest we spiral with one sip of a Margarita, or, for many in this town, a pull on a Vape.

It makes sense that April is “Health Awareness Month,” a time to reset before the onslaught of summer. We’re pretty aggro up here, stepping in full force into whatever we are trying to accomplish, so it’s good to hone in on health, if only for a month.

From the inception, Aspen Business Connect has propelled me towards that place I’ve been meditating on reaching, for over 9 years. Now, how to keep up with the pace? For me, being outdoors, meditating, tequila, stepping into the King Yoga room, and of lately, Aspen Chapel have been my methods of preservation.

Aspen Chapel, a spiritual center for those seeking an inclusive spiritual practice, offers all kinds of meditation classes, spiritual programs and speakers, many of which are donation based.

Last night I experienced a “Breathwork and Binaural Beats” class with Eliza Kane. It’s been an amazing thing, getting to the place I’m at right here, right now, but the caveat of creating this current world of mine is that I don’t have enough time in my day to keep up with it all. Waking up at 2:30am yesterday morning I figured I may as well get up and use that precious quiet time to catch up on work. Ending a double day like that with breathing while listening to binaural beats on headphones was probably the best thing I could have done to connect to my energy, clear my mental stress, and let go of the tension binding my body tightly into one tight knot. Laying down for 30+ minutes to concentrate on breathing happens … well … never, but for the place I’m in right now in my life, a necessity.

Walking out of the chapel I glanced up at the steeple as it reached towards the Emerald Blue evening sky fading to black, and I stood still taking it all in; the tingling calm of my body, the beauty of the night, and the calmness I felt after a very long day, and I felt grateful for those people in my life giving their all for people like me to stay healthy, so that we too can put our everything into our lives, and give to others.

[su_quote cite=”Aspen Chapel”]The breathing meditation allows for deep relaxation, mental and physical rejuvenation, and the opening of the heart center. When the brain has a chance to slow down, clarity and alertness follow and space opens for the invention of new possibilities.[/su_quote]

How Nature Heals, A Story From #l....As the story from the forest unraveled while we were skinning through it, other stories were revealed and I began to collect the information for a possible future children’s book; the snow crystals sparkling like diamonds in the sun, the white ice crystals of hoarfrost layered upon the snow, and as I absorbed the textures with my eyes, I realized that I also felt the textures from within and it was inexplicably soothing. We have been forced to slow down during this Pandemic, allowing us the opportunity to reflect deeply about our place in the world. For many of us revelations are happening daily, but if we are filled with anxiety, or can’t move beyond our depression, we will not allow the revelations to seep in and we will miss the magic. Meditation helps immensely to create mindfulness about the chatter that leads to the anxiety, as does listening to the journeys of others as they get raw in their pain while enduring heart break and loss. As we repeatedly witness, the world can be a scary place where humanity can be careless, selfish and hateful, but humanity and compassion can also heal us to a place where we are able to see the world as healing rather than a place we want to escape from, but you need to get raw with it. Face it head on, so that you can create space and breathe, which will allow you to slowly shed the anxiety and the depression so that you can strengthen from within and persevere, no matter what is going on around you. Get outside in nature, and nurture it as it nurtures you.Read More at ...
