This practice begins with a QiGong Tree of Life exercise and then moves into a practice given to John by his teacher, Sofia Diaz, to help him express the grief of losing his daughter. It's an embodiment practice in which you express grief from your belly and solar plexus, which is a deeper space than most of us often express from. This practice is particularly potent when done out in nature, as you can give your grief and sadness to the earth. Set-up a mat, rug or sheepskin to practice on and prepare to play the mantra "Ardas Bhaee" by Simrit. You will begin standing for the QiGong exercise, in which you will swing your arms and light fists to contact various parts of the body, and then John will guide you to start the music and then move into Child's Pose on your mat. Revisit this practice anytime you feel sad or grief-stricken.
