A Somatic Exercise Triplet
Here is a link to a rather basic video of today's Somatic exercise. You can also find it on the MEDITATIONS page.

If you are a learn-by-reading type, below are the steps for the exercise.
This post also includes links for resources and some notes on the process.
I. First part: Release
(Based on Chinese medicine’s meridians; see a basic description of the meridians here: https://www.risingmoontaichi.net/the-meridians )
II. Second part; Becoming Present
(Based on Somatic Healing techniques; https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/therapy-types/somatic-therapy )
III. Third part; Self Containment/Replenishment
(Based on Polarity Therapy https://www.lifeenergyinstitute.net/aboutpolaritytherapy/ )
You can do all three parts of this exercise – or just one if you have little time – depending on what you are most in need of (release, presence or re-energizing).
I suggest the simple Holding-of-Self as it is easy to do even when people are near you: Place left hand on right ribcage, right hand on left elbow. Take a moment within to feel your self re-gathering energy before you proceed to your next task.
Be clear, present and energized, dear friends.
