''The momentum of life sometimes feels like whitewater rapids, sometimes like a placid pool ~ and the way we handle our kayak determines the quality of our experience!'
Present Moment Brocades is about a way of handling the kayak (as a metaphor of our human physical and spiritual body) on its journey of life's momentum....
The PRESENT MOMENT BROCADES started out as voice prompts for practicing the 'Eight Pieces of Brocade.'
The coaching prompts are created by writing a script, playing the text on a text-to-voice synthesizer, recording the screen as a video, and converting the .mp4 to .mp3 for audio.
Over time, the Qigong coach was re-written eighty-some times, until the 'Eight Pieces' became something new.
While practicing the set between revisions, I kept hearing new ways to make the wording clearer, smoother, and more potent. I also grew bolder to write into the brocades my realizations about the present moment and the matrix mind.
On one hand, the Brocades Qigong Coach is for my practice. On the other, it is a joy too great not to share. So, I write into the next revision my next realizations, test it in practice, and share on this site what works for me. This 'work' has brought me through some very difficult times with more lightness and ease, over the past months.
Now, 'Brocades' feels ready for a wider audience, and is available in many languages. The process of this creation has been pure delight to me. Please download the .mp3 file and share it freely.
Also, please write to me with special requests such as the 'Brocades' in another language or speed of speech, and let me know about any typos, non-working links, or questions you may encounter on this site.
Stay tuned for further developments!
