It is a practice or I would say a ritual that can be practiced when we are all over the place in our lives.
Fear, rage, anger, jealousy, competitiveness are overwhelming and we need to calm ourselves, bring stillness in our life to see why we are overwhelmed and to judge what’s happening within. it’s good to give ourselves a timeline to do some practice which will connect us to our whole being.
