My Self-Awareness

The value (worthy) that we give to ourselves is reflected on the behavior of our act towards others. And that is how people perceive us as a whole.

Self aware is not only about our appearance. But, it is more about being mindful of what we do especially towards other and ourselves as well. Continuously watching our behavior. How we talk, how we respond to others, how we give feedback. Does our attitude “polite enough” that it can be accepted by the heart of the consciousness?

When we are mindful of ourselves, the way we speak touch other people’s heart. The way we look at their eyes feel each of their breath and bring deeper connection with them. They way we touch, teach them how to be vulnerable. And it is not easy to act this way. Because in order to be able to act this way, we need to approach ourselves first. Be honest and polite to ourselves and commit to be continuously taking care of ourselves.

Honesty is probably the hardest task in this life. Because when we are honest (to ourselves), we will see the horrible things that hurts us most and created that pain again. But, there in no way out anyway. The only way to understand the pain is to face it once again, feel it and accept it. That it is already happen.

And our body such an intelligent vehicle. The body will give signs (of sickness) when the feeling is getting to much. Selfishness cause to the illness in the stomach area, sadness cause to the illness in the chest area, fear cause to the illness on the kidney, bladder and hamstring, hatred or envy create illness in the heart organ and rage create the illness in the liver organ. This knowledge is based on the teaching of Cosmology and the meridian line of Chinese medicine, both science have been used to cure many types of illness for many years.

Once of my good friend told me that he just got bronchitis problem, and this illness caused him cough so much. And then I asked him if he wanted to do some breath work, I will be happy to assist. His answer was “Not now..” I know for fact that he knew, this process is going to be painful. The breath will show him what actually cause his sickness, and in the mean time he doesn’t want to know about it. I said, “I’ll be here when you are ready.”

Start the Practice Now!

The practice starts with a question “What is your most difficult feeling?”

As we get along with our busy days, the sun comes up and goes down quickly. We don’t seem to be able enjoy the day as we are continuously busy with our thoughts and ideas. The body goes along with the thoughts, carry such a heavy weight of responsibility to fulfill all of the obligation, complete task and responsibilities. It doesn’t seem like we have time even to stop for a minutes and enjoy our own breath on this kind of day. Unfortunately, this is all we have learned for the entire time of our life, in our school, college and now at the work place.

We all have needs to be completed. Money to buy food for us and our family, monthly electricity bills, petrol and transports, clothes and blanket to keep us warm and many other stuff we cannot mention one by one. Does it mean that we are not allowed to enjoy our life even for a little bit, understand what is the essence of living and what is the purpose of our life? We can surely enchanted by the glamorous night life with boost, pretty girls and nice looking shoes. Believe it or not this entertainments are not long lasting. Even thought we have a great party night, there is something missing, something feels incomplete and still we crave more for this feeling of contentment.

Our breath has been with us from the first second we arrive in this life, and yet it never got appreciated. We have forgotten our breath entirely. We have forgotten that we are complete with it and it completes us. Even sometimes we forget to breathe.

When you start to practice with your breath, you have no other choice but to be honest. There is no way out, unless you allow it to be opened. And honestly, to open the breath is effortless. It is so easy that we have the desire to complicate it. Just like the nature of our life.

Our breath witnesses each time of memories of our life. The breath knew when was the time it was painful and also knew when was the time it was nice and beautiful. Each of the most powerful memories comes with the expression of breathing, whether it was fast or slow. And those are the gate of knowledge to pursue the wisdom from our past so we can all safe ourselves from suffering the same old life pattern, making the same mistakes, chasing tales.

Open Class March 2017

“I have learned that is only through courage, we can all find that profound space within us.”

The healing journey has become even deeper nowadays. Most participants reached out their feelings and started to understand “the pain”. Sometimes (in fact most of the time), this is not the most beautiful place to visit. Yet, only by understanding it, allowing it to happen and accept that it has happened, it only can be released.

The battle with the fabricated mind is still on! See you in April.

Healing Breath Weekend Retreat

Most of our trauma happens at the time that we have forgotten. Each of the memory carries different feelings that is so painful as we don’t want to see it anymore. Our brain has erased the memory to prevent the body to experience it in the future. However, as the mind has forgotten, the body remembers. Each of that trauma has been stored in the muscle. The pain has been stored in the body. So we don’t have other choice, so we all suffer.

The only way to be free to this suffering is to release and let go of that pain by understanding the feelings.

Healing Breath Semi-Private Class

Are you often feeling easily annoyed or angry by something unimportant when you get through your daily activities? This might be caused by the suppressed feelings and emotions that you have carried most of the time, without realizing.

When we faced with stress situation, our body will automatically respond in flight or fight mode. Or if the stress is too much, sometimes the body respond with freeze mode. In this trauma situation, the body remembers the most. Each trauma situation carries feelings within each memories, and those feelings stays in the body. What the mind has forgotten, the body remembers long after.

Unfortunately, we are tend to suppressed these feelings in our daily life. Because we are busy with our work or because the tradition has not allowed us to express the feelings. When the feelings and emotions are not freely expressed, they are suppressed in the body. Suppressing feelings and emotions takes a lot of energy. The goal of our practice is to allow the opportunity for suppressed feelings to arise and allow unexpressed charge to be released.

Healing Breath Semi-Private Class is three to four hours of breath work session, maximum 4 participants. With less participants, our facilitators will be able to direct their attention to each participants deeper throughout the practice, this way the participants can be more focus on their own practice and allow the release to happen. The agenda of the Healing Breath Semi-Private Class include:

  • Self introduction & intention setting, introduction about breathing, core of the problem, benefits, expectation, breathing techniques and breathing practice (75 minutes)
  • Toilet break (10 minutes)
  • Breath work and healing (70 minutes)
  • Awakening, sharing, and closing (45 minutes)
  • Nourishment and free time

Healing Breath Open Class

All of human activities are basically either conscious or unconscious. Movements of our limbs (legs, arms, etc) are conscious; it only moves when we want it to move. While the activities of our heart beat, or the inner organs (like kidneys or stomach) are unconscious, most of the time the work of these organs happen automatically without us knowing it.  However, our breath is unique. It can happen both conscious or unconscious.

Conscious breathing happen when we aware of our breath, remember to breath slow or when we practice pranayama, this activities also called as “controlled breathing”. While unconscious breathing happen when we don’t realize that we are breathing, mostly happen on our daily life especially when we are under stress or too busy with our daily obligations.

Without we realize, restricted breathing pattern happen when we tend to the breath unconsciously. This restricted breathing are mostly caused by the suppression of emotions and feelings. Therefore the goal of the practice is to allow the emotions and feelings arise to the surface and allowing it to be expressed and released.

In our  Healing Breath Open Class we practice long-deep-connected breathing. The breath is flowing continuous and naturally. In the practice we don’t try to control the breath, but we still aware of the breath and that we must practice deep and connected breathing.

Healing Breath Open Class is three to four hours of breath work practice with maximum 12 participants on each session. The session is normally happen on monthly basis at our wellness center Yoga Umah Shakti in Sanur. The agenda of the breath work session including:

  • Self introduction & intention setting, introduction about breathing, core of the problem, benefits, expectation, breathing techniques and breathing practice (75 minutes)
  • Toilet break (10 minutes)
  • Breath work and healing (70 minutes)
  • Awakening, sharing, and closing (45 minutes)
