WUaS Idea- and Academic Resources[edit]

Ideas[edit]

Sometimes bliss just bubbles up out of the deep easing of the inner bodymind.

The Harbin Hot Springs - http://harbin.org - warm pool is so harmonizing, deepening the benefits & deliciousness of the Relaxation Response, for example.

The relaxation response is secular, biological and involves practices, where your agency can elicit this neurophysiology - http://www.relaxationresponse.org/steps.

If yoga consciousness is about tranquility, and the relaxation response is learnable, eliciting the relaxation response in body-temperature, warm water, - in your bathtub, for example, - can open new approaches to learning tranquility in your bodymind. Asana can facilitate wondrous bodymind, neurophysiological soups, as well ~ Lotus in your bathtub!


Steps to Elicit the Relaxation Response

1. Sit quietly in a comfortable position.

2. Close your eyes.

3. Deeply relax all your muscles, beginning at your feet and progressing up to your face. Keep them relaxed.

4. Breathe through your nose. Become aware of your breathing. As you breathe out, say the word, "one"*, silently to yourself. For example, breathe in ... out, "one",- in .. out, "one", etc. Breathe easily and naturally.

5. Continue for 10 to 20 minutes. You may open your eyes to check the time, but do not use an alarm. When you finish, sit quietly for several minutes, at first with your eyes closed and later with your eyes opened. Do not stand up for a few minutes.

6. Do not worry about whether you are successful in achieving a deep level of relaxation. Maintain a passive attitude and permit relaxation to occur at its own pace. When distracting thoughts occur, try to ignore them by not dwelling upon them and return to repeating "one." With practice, the response should come with little effort. Practice the technique once or twice daily, but not within two hours after any meal, since the digestive processes seem to interfere with the elicitation of the Relaxation Response.

  • or any soothing, mellifluous sound, preferably with no meaning.

or association, to avoid stimulation of unnecessary thoughts.
