Art of Hugging, a Practice in Presence

The Art of Hugging is an opportunity to experience our own connection to ourselves while connecting (hugging) with another.

This practice opens me up to the possibility of standing in my own Self fully while meeting another, who is standing in their full Self, and together relaxing and breathing into an open space of connection and resting there.

When I seek to meet the moment and be present,  all that stands in my way makes itself known. This practice is no exception. When we put our attention within and connect with another there is an opportunity to notice what arises. Whether what is highlighted is where we hold tension in our bodies when connecting or it may be that we can more clearly hear the voices inside with their litany of judgements, fears, hopes, assessments, projection.  Any hesitation we have to connect in the presence of another is revealed. 

When I am able to relax and rest with whatever is Here, I can find my way to relax and rest anywhere, even in the arms of another!
