I was able to meditate two hours yesterday for the first time since my mama died. I practised again for a couple of hours this morning. I already feel so much better from the 4 hours of meditation I was able to practice. I always feel happy and proud when I am able to sit and focus my mind. Truly it is intense daily yoga practice I have been doing since I came back from China in 2016 that have brought me back to siting meditation. If you practice enough yoga, you will begin to crave sitting meditation. I know how important it is for me to meditate because I am so sensitive. Meditation has profound health benefits that includes stress and anxiety reduction. In our contemporary madness of a world, everybody can benefit from stress and anxiety reduction. Regular meditation practice helps to manage mood, anxiety, and panic disorders. Meditation promotes calm, kindness, emotional balance, healthy relationships, a refined sense of self-awareness, the ability to focus intensely. Meditation also improves sleep, decreases blood pressure and supports the overall effective management of the sensation of physical pain. Meditation is one of the most powerful tools you have at your disposition since it is free and you can practice meditation anywhere. You are literally rebuilding your brain's grey matter when you meditate. You are effectively reshaping the superpowers of your brain! This is why mediation also contributes to old-age healthy brain function. Meditation is yoga, yoke, union for a peaceful mind. When practised regularly your mind-heart becomes clear and inspired. You know what decisions to take. Things become filled with synchronicity and life becomes much much easier. Everybody wants some of that!
BÉRANGÈRE MAÏA NATASHA PARIZEAU
My artwork, experimental films, and scholarly reflections emerge from a deep curiosity and fascination with the boundlessness of the human spirit, the limitlessness of the cosmic universe, the mythological, the spiritual, the exploration of my EARTH LIGHT body which emanates from infinity (this is the realm of the MYSTERY, the wildest imagination), as well as a real concern for our beautiful planet MOTHER EARTH. The premise of this heuristic body of work is that the current planetary crises are crises in human consciousness, crises of the humanity group soul/spirit. As an environmental advocate and consciousness activist, my work intends to intentionally participate in redesigning culture, the intentional participation in designing a post-growth ecological culture (this is the creative process of redesigning culture) for an ecologically sustainable and spiritually thriving planetary future. My intention is to shed light on the sacred multidimensional ways in which we potentiate the power of our consciousness. This body of work is a prayer to humanity to align our mind and hearts, to raise the power of our hearts, to develop methods and technologies to go inward towards the complexities and awareness of our individual connection to Source We are the Rainbow Warriors. If the world is indeed participatory, we manifest/dream this world into existence. Indeed, dear friends... a colourful future is ours to create!
