Using Mindfulness, Somatics and Mind-Body Education
Mental, Emotional & Embodied Wellbeing
The Analogy: When a tree is well-anchored by roots that are healthy and evenly spread for balance, it thrives, holds steady in the storm, and bears fruits that nourish life around it. Nurtured roots allow also for communication, support and healthy competition through intricate underground fungi network, all of which orient the individual tree and its collective habitat towards growth. But when roots are under-nurtured or imbalanced, trees suffer immensely from stresses which aren’t easily seen – all unfolding underneath the surface. This is true for trees, true for us.
What we see on the surface – anxiety, overwhelm, stress – are surface symptoms of underlying imbalances. Radiant Roots is an initiative towards unearthing subtler mental and emotional imbalances using the natural intelligence of our mind and body.
This allows us to open up to all of life, humans and non. Collectively and gradually, we also develop qualities that impact our interactions, society, and our children of tomorrow.
Mindfulness is a form of secular meditation. Through the practice of mindfulness, one benefits from developing stability, clarity, relaxation, insight, perspective and non-judgemental appreciation. The mind and body’s survival patterns loosen up, and the practice allows one to explore the underlying patterns in order to heal them. Through mindfulness meditation, one is able to evolve healthily, gain stability and clarity, and conduct life with inner authority.
The body’s intelligence serves as an incredibly useful compass where we can’t easily use our mind’s. The body speaks in the language of contraction and expansion. Somatic practices (embodied mindfulness and movement) involves attending to felt sensations, using that as a tool for healing. Unconsciously leaning on things, hunching, holding the breath, shallow breathing are ways the body (and nervous system) reveal one’s underlying state. Getting in touch with that is often the key to growth.
Mind-Body Education involves appreciation of the larger context in which stressors exist. This involves understanding characteristics of of the mind, body, relationships, lifestyle, history, or environment and its impact on one’s wellbeing. Education allows us to check our lives are on track and make well-informed choices that support us and those around us.
