Take A Breath for Students Ages 12-18- Sample


5 Minutes

These simple and short recordings, often based in breath, give you an opportunity to use them almost anywhere.  Seated in a chair, lying down, in a car, etc.  That said, treat them as a break from the day.  Make the time special for you, you deserve it.  Note there are some short, specialty recordings here as well, to use in a tough moment, or to shift your response in a specific environment.  You will also see references to other audio recordings.

These recordings begin to allow for a deeper physical relaxation response. These give the physical body more time to integrate the benefit of the deepening breath. Again, make sure you create the proper space for yourself. Here again, you will find specialty recordings which might serve you deeply.

All of these recordings will create a deep relaxation response and therefore the body mind will begin to benefit. At this length you may begin to receive the benefits of conscious sleep. The brainwave shift similar to those you find at night sleeping. So, you receive up to a 3 to 1 benefit ratio. The 20 minutes of these recordings are equal to 45 minutes to an hour of nighttime sleep.

30 Minutes

These are the ultimate in the recordings.  They are meant for a deep, long rest.  It is suggested that you choose a position to practice these recordings in which you can be very comfortable.  The body will release heavily into gravity and if you are not set up correctly, it can be uncomfortable.  These recordings move through deep layers beyond the body and breath, with imaging and explorations of tension release in the psyche.  It is not hypnosis as it involves both sides of the brain.  And you are aware (albeit, sometimes sleepy!).  These recordings can begin to address long held ideas and experiences in the body, while simply remaining aware.  The gift of these practices; awareness.  You are simply observing the deep layers of the self, and not reacting, fixing, blaming, etc.  A true transformation is available here.


Additional 30 Minute Experiences:

  • Opposites and Duality

  • Energy Journey

  • Get to Sleep or Back to Sleep in the Night

  • And more!
