drawing with hand, head and heart: beyond the right side of the brain

The laborer works with his hands, the craftsman works with his hands and his head, the artist works with his hands, his head and his heart — Francis of Assisi (1182-1226) Over the past few decades, the theory that postulates dual operations of the brain has become a popular and practical model for understanding the …

breathwork: coherence and union

If I say mind and thinking, you automatically know that we are talking about head. And reason. With the same automatism, you know that when using the words emotion and feeling all the rest of the body is put into play from the heart. The world of sensations.

breathing: the master clock of the sleeping brain

The way of suffering -Thich Nhat Hanh (1926-2022)

Handling our suffering is an art - if we know how to suffer, we suffer much less, and we’re no longer afraid of being overwhelmed by the suffering.
