Instructions for “Pressure Release”:
This is a great practice for when you notice you are getting caught up in your feelings. It’s almost like you are having the muscles in your body teach your mind how to let go. Once you practice in the body, you can invide your mind to follow along, and release it’s own tensions.
.“It is true of all life forms that, as the demands made on an organism increase, so that organism’s capactiy to respond to that demand also increases — but only ever up to a certain point. Beyond a certain point, if the demands just keep building the organism’s capacity to respond is overwhelmed and the organism’s capactiy to perform falls off — often very repidly.” – Michael Chaskalson
