Find nourishment in this powerful meditation from Sonima to unlock the rigidity involved in unhealthy patterns and return the mind and heart to their most exalted and essential states.
Any pattern we’ve hosted, whether deleterious or beneficial, has created a likelihood in our physiology, our neurology, and our chemistry. This meditation by Elena Brower, a noted New York City-based yoga and meditation instructor, grants us time to rest in a natural, essential state, beneath all the patterns, all the habitual tendencies, in our most primary state of being. The technique we call upon in this 18-minute meditation is working with feelings and their oppositions so we can get at the root of our unhealthy patterns and seek to find stillness and the best version of ourselves beneath it all.
