Time: 26 minutes
Reconnect with each other through a simple breathing meditation as we often get overwhelmed with a busy mind and body. Lie next to each other, belly to belly, and let David Cates bring you both to a state of calmness. Step out of your routine day, making time for each other to simply breathe in sync. Find a level of connection or relaxation or presence that may not have been there, or has been on the back burner, and ground each other with the warm fire that exists between you.
You might be amazed with the rhythmic waves of sensation and feeling that are shared in real time.
“Let your bodies touch heart to heart, belly to belly, hips to hips. Feel completely relaxed…. Let go, exhale, sigh. Slow time down.
Notice what changes are happening your body. What makes you more relaxed. How much more aware of your partner are you? Feel your partner’s whole body at the same time, head to toe.”
“Open your eyes and find your partner’s face. Notice what looks new and different about your partner’s face. Take turns speaking little sentences of gratitude, and find something new and delightful in your partner and share what you discovered.”
David Cates, Belly2Belly
“Belly2Belly is a deceptively simple process that rests on multiple dimensions of neurobiology, pranayama, focused sensory awareness, tantric ritual, intimate communion, witness consciousness, sound entrainment, sequenced relaxation, psychological regression, shadow work, neurolinguistic programming, wizardry and primate zoology.
The exercises are designed to dissolve the Western experience of separate self into rhythmic waves of sensation and feeling that are shared with a partner in real time. What results is a profoundly felt sense of peace and connection, a natural biochemical high that neuro-mirrors intimate love, meditative samadhi and mystical oneness.“
