We lie on our mats with a blanket rolled beneath our lower backs. Who knew such a simple task could cause so much discomfort – burning, aching, throbbing. At least that’s the way it is for me. Peter gently reminds us to consider whether or not you are being reactive or responsive to the sensation. If it’s too much you can back off he says. Yet, he tells us that you also could use this experience as opportunity to take your breath up and in and down between your shoulders and out through your lower back and, in so-doing, have a conversation with yourself about what is really happening. Sometimes pain is simply a message to pay attention. Today I am having a lively conversation and paying exquisite attention.
