The latest episode of Lush Tongue: Sound Meditation, Improv and Musings #32,  I shared some insights about the power of breath to bring us to the present moment and our highest state. I recently experienced an immersion from one of the godfathers of personal development in the West: Tony Robbins. He can be a polarizing figure for many, but what he absolutely gets right is to power of our being to command more out of life than we might have previously thought possible. I am so grateful for all the vocal work I do, because I got quite the workout this weekend screaming and dancing and jumping around like a maniac, and I loved every second of it! If you ever have an opportunity to experience his work, live or online, I highly recommend it.

One thing in particular that stuck out to me was how much power there is in the basics. In addition to the highly esoteric spiritual and psychological concepts we were deconstructing and embodying throughout the immersion, there was also a focus on the fundamentals of bringing yourself to your state of greatest vitality: drinking lots of water, walking barefoot on the ground, and expressing the fire of passion within you in the form of creative expression, relational intimacy, emotional release, and breathing lots of air. These everyday acts compound into a character and a life that can powerfully embrace the inevitable storms and uncertainties.

I talk about breath and demonstrate a few simple techniques in my latest FB live, which you can view below.

The purpose of Soul Incites: Self-development Book Club (SDBC) is to bring my extensive background as a teacher and workshop facilitator to the online sphere by providing a space where women can witness and support each other in our growth journeys by harnessing the wisdom of personal development texts. We are covering a diverse range of topics such as mindset transformation, energy work, money, relationships, clearing trauma, creating breakthroughs, specific self-development techniques and healing modalities, spiritual and metaphysical approaches to personal development, and more.
