Stillness and silence are at the very heart of mind/body medicine.
It is in this softer space that we shift from the fast pace of our lives,
the striving and doing, the chatter and noise. We slip into the grace of the
present moment and hear the whisper of our soul.
From an Ayurvedic viewpoint, stillness and silence are medicine for body, mind and soul. The parasympathetic nervous system is allowed to engage, our inner chemistry is changed, physical and emotional stress is released, we become more harmonized, balanced and whole.
I invite you to experience stillness and silence through these practices:
• Find time for silence, even while getting on with your day.
• Take time to follow your breath and disengage from your thoughts.
• Turn the devices off (you know what I mean...)
• Get into nature and drink in the beauty around you.
