Give Attention to Where Others’ Body/Breath is Open

While interacting with someone, you can notice their breathing, posture and/or gestures to invite a deeper connection through resonance.

How to do it


  1. Let your body be a receiver, e.g., a drum head or instrument that echoes the speaker’s presence.
  2. Turn your attention to the person you are interacting with and notice a body posture or their breathing.
  3. Get curious about where openness is radiating in them.
  4. Switch to noticing your body awareness and open spaces, then theirs, for a moment or throughout the conversation.
