As we become aware of new information about coronavirus, we will be sure to let you know. You can also find the latest updates at CDC.gov. In the meanwhile, here’s a quick, 5-minute sample breath exercise for you to try:
Close your eyes gently and take this moment and breathe deeply. A deep breath will help you to process all of the things you are feeling. Now take another deep breath and bring in pure, clean energy. Hold your next breath for as long as you can. As you exhale, imagine that all the stuck energy in your body is being melted away like snowflakes in the full light of the midday sun. Allow your natural breathing rhythm to take over while bringing your attention to listening for any specific spaces in your body that want to feel absolutely loving energy. Continue breathing normally as you feel your energy circulate within your entire body.
