TAKING THE ONE SEAT Ajahn Chah invited each of us to take “the one seat” where we’re able to witness the arising and passing of our experience at the sense doors. Meeting this classic meditation instruction from a breathwork perspective, we’re inviting in a full expression of this “one who knows” If there’s resistance, tension in the body or sound that needs to come on line in order to facilitate a shift, we allow the space -that isn’t available in a meditation hall- for that expression to come through.
Breathwork is an active form of meditation that uses a two-part breath to shift stuck emotional energy. This clearing out can happen in our physical self as well as in out belief systems. When we breathe consciously and with purpose- focusing all of our attention on that- it has the ability to bypass the thinking mind, allowing us to stay with the felt sense in the body. Because we aren’t engaged in defending, or blaming, or the other ways we shut down around our feelings- the breath is able partner with our nervous system, helping us to flush out some of the emotional bracing or baggage that we might be carrying. Shifting stuck emotional energy facilitates the release of strong emotions like anger and grief in their pure, felt form. Most people describe feeling softer, more spacious and less burdened.
