Week 1 Daily murmuration morning Practice Videos (these seem to be only available on your computer)

This week please have available for our movement practices the following items:

  • a ball

  • a flat surface (a light book, your phone, a foam yoga block...)

  • a blanket or pillow

  • a chair, sofa, or low table

  • pen and paper or a journal for reflections

Here is our soundtrack (first on Spotify, then Tidal)
Here are some books that we may mention or quote from, or that have been inspiring and foundational in our work for this webinar.

Props for practices:
Day 2 (Fri 19 May) — a squishy ball, or a bolster, or a pillow/ blanket/towel that you can roll up. We're going to lay across it.

Coherence Breathing

This video of the Breathing Zone App begins at a ratio of 1:1 (inhale to exhale equal length) and moves to a ratio of 1:2 (exhale twice as long as inhale) by the end, at a rate of 5.5 breaths/minute for 3 minutes.

You can try this out here. It's the same practice we did in the Wednesday Webinar. We'll be trying coherence breathing again during a murmuration morning practice this week.

This is a great summary of Iain McGilchrist's Divided Brain work.
This is an interesting interview that describes complexity theory.
