Breathe is simply beautiful. I will often use music to help calm my mind and nervous system when I am feeling over stimulated, exceptionally busy, stressed or tight inside.

C’est la Vie: I love music, and, although my children will tell you I embarrass them when I dance, I still love to do it. I actually think that kids get uncomfortable when their parents show certain “big” feelings like sadness and joy. My daughter will often look at me intently when I play certain songs that remind me of my dad that often make me cry and ask me to stop dancing when I am having fun wiggling my body to certain tunes. This is a favorite song that I love to dance to. Really turn it up loud and just DANCE.

John Welwood‘s Songs: This is one of my favorite songs John would play at retreats. We would lay on our backs, rest our hands on our belly and breathe. He taught me the gift of belly breathing.

Kahawi’tha: This is such a sweet lovely song. I hope that you agree.
Liquid Mind: Music has a sacred way of healing the body. Often when I am overwhelmed, sad or constricted inside and don’t have the capacity to be still and quiet, I will lay on my bed or floor and listen to songs to help move the stuck or difficult energy through my body. This is one of those songs that I will often turn towards in those time.

Tracy Chapman is one of my favorite artists! On the car ride to our hiking destination, we listened to the remake of Stand By Me. I LOVE it! If you ever hear that she is in town for a concert, please let me know. Also listen to Baby I Can Hold You Tonight with Tracy Chapman and Pavarotti. It is another great one!
