Steady, gentle person-to-person contact is essential for our well-being.

Creative Awareness Practice sessions are all about connections - between our own bodies and minds, as beings in the larger world, and as members of social networks. According to Harvard Women's Health Watch,  "caring involvement with others may be one of the easiest health strategies to access. It's inexpensive, it requires no special equipment or regimen, and we can engage in it in many ways."

 
Health is more than the absence of disease; it is a resource that allows people to realize their aspirations, satisfy their needs and to cope with the environment in order to live a long, productive, and fruitful life.

Our mental ruts that cause stress and dismay can be safely re-routed to yield powerful results.

Much of what we accept as reality is simply the thinking that arises from mental ruts. Mental ruts are habitual patterns of thought about ourselves or our world that are not based on evidence, but rather on assumptions, attitudes or opinions that play again and again in our thinking mind.  We can open to the power and the possibility of our existence by leaving the ruts behind and re-routing our thoughts. Creative Awareness Practice helps us to expand beyond the limits of our beliefs and into the expansive exploration of our lives.

We are on a planet with a molten core, spinning in outer space.

From this truth, we can gather a perspective that we have can experience our our power and glory if we learn to rest our awareness in the body breathing as a literal vehicle. Because the body is made of the same substances as the planet, and is fired with electricity in the beating heart, we can each understand that we carry a power that is self-sustaining and unique. As well, we are here together.  These two realities of our individual journey and of the group are part of the Creative Awareness Practice exploration process to be found in the breath itself as we draw air from the world into our body and then press the air back into the world.
