Today’s Moment of Tranquility is about finding a place of calm in the eye of the storm. It combines a simple ancient grounding exercise with a trick I learned from a friend when we were travelling on a six week festival tour. We were spending hours every day on busses and sleeping in a different place every night. She taught me to be able to choose my personal environment by listening to my own choice of music on my headphones and “checking out”. It saved me a lot of energy and allowed me at least to rest when it wasn’t possible to sleep.
This grounding exercise comes with music that supports the mood of slowing down and getting earthy! If you use headphones, you can tune out all external noise which might be the next best thing to silence. If you can find a completely quiet place to practice, that’s ideal, but sadly, these days few of us can, so the headphone trick is a handy one.
