About this course
Some reasons the cultivation of Hara is essential:
- It is a doorway back to your embodied presence
- It is implicitly connected with the ground, the Earth, which is a connection modern humans desperately need to nurture
- It offers a direct experience of being centered
- It supports you in moving with coherence such that all parts of you moving in alignment with your intentions
- Hara is our original source of nourishment, and offers a place where we can cultivate a sense of “enoughness”
- Hara is an essential part of our embodied truth and bullshit detector
- Growing Hara can help keep other people’s concepts of beauty and strength out of your body
- Embodying this part of yourself can help you to learn how to more fully inhabit and experience moments of grief, joy, passion, and ordinariness – life itself
- An empowered hara helps immensely with reducing or eliminating back, neck, and shoulder pain
- An empowered hara helps you to embody your power.
- People with hara are much less easily manipulated by advertising, propaganda, scarcity, narcissists, conventional reality, and etc.
- Hara is connected with Soul, Earth, Duende, and your animal body knowing
- Hara allows for full belly laughter, full belly grieving – a more fully human life
- Hara can move fast but is never in a hurry
- In Japan, rather than saying that a wise person “has a good head on her shoulders” they say, “She has good belly.” Grow good belly! It’s a key to grounded, embodied wisdom.
