A Personal Journey: Breath, with Angela Farmer. Hands On Health; angela-victor.com
The focus of the first disc is a long meditation based on an ancient Sumerian myth of the fertility goddess Inanna. Farmer sets the stage with a preliminary sitting practice and a recounting of the story of Inanna, whose descent into the underworld serves as a frame for the guided meditation.
Disc 2 consists of five breathing exercises and short meditations on the breath and Mother Earth. In her breathwork, Farmer takes you far off the beaten track, with an ear-opening rendition of the bellows. Farmer is either a poet who teaches yoga or a yogini who teaches through poetry, with an underlying theme of “finding your own power.”
