365-day course: WEEK 12

~ CONTRAST ~

Life is a journey; not a destination.

MY A.M. PRACTICE

FIRST THING when I wake up each day:
1.  I will continue to wake up and immediately think of something that I appreciate and write it down in my “MY STORY” journal.*
*While I am thinking of whatever it is, in this state of appreciation I will do the Moving Meditation for APPRECIATION. The MM link is below.
2.  I will identify the emotions I experienced upon awakening and write them down in my journal.
3.  Take 5 minutes to visualize. Check!
4.  Note what came to mind during my visualization.
5. (Optional) Share or post in the facebook group to let everyone know I have completed my a.m practice for the day!  My team is there to support me and keep me accountable!

Moving Meditation Practice – APPRECIATION

Continuing our morning gratitude practice!  We are starting each morning with the Moving Meditation for APPRECIATION.  Now that we have been doing this for over three months, you may be starting to feel the appreciation as soon as the music comes on.  Perhaps you can even visualize the movement.  If you want to review the breakdown videos (or use the other versions of these MMs from our Zoom calls), you can return to your earlier weeks’ pages; all the videos are saved there.

We will find our own time to work this practice, and use the facebook group to stay connected!

Moving Meditation this week – CONTRAST

Over the last several weeks of the course we have moved from PASSION to STRENGTH to POWER to DETERMINATION to HOPE.  This week we are embracing the CONTRAST in our lives.  It serves us well.  You gotta know hot to know cold.

Warrior® Tai Chi Yoga

We finished our Warrior® Tai Chi Yoga breakdowns in the weeks 1-5 (one breakdown each week plus the MM for RELIEF in Week 1).  In week 8, Deb shared a BONUS video breakdown on Eagle pose.  To review any of those breakdowns, you can return to that week’s page for the videos.

Here is a link to a full WTCY class STREAMED LIVE FROM RETREAT this week if you want to make this half-hour class part of your morning or daily practice.

Warrior® Workout

Optional Warrior® Workouts are now part of our weekly schedule!  Don’t worry, this is completely optional because we know many of you have been doing these workouts on a regular basis for the last few months.  You can do this in your own time, and you can start with just one 5-minute round if you want!  No pressure.

Here is a link to a 30-minute class mix we streamed LIVE AT RETREAT this week!  BONUS: the Active Recovery after each round is the Moving Meditation for CONTRAST, so you get to practice it extra!  Embrace the Contrast, Warriors!  You can also access the full library of workouts on your VIP Warrior® Workout page.

Inspirational Conversations

You may notice that your “checklist” on the calendar includes listening to an “Inspirational Conversation” in your own time.  What is an Inspirational Conversation?

Our podcast, Alignment Essentials: Inspirational Conversations for Living in Alignment, covers many of the tools we will be using in our 365 day practice.  We suggest starting by listening to Episode 2: Living in Alignment.

You can listen directly at the link below, or go to the full podcast page to check out additional episodes.  If you have never listened to the podcast and are relatively new to working with AE, you might want to listen to the Introduction episode in addition to Episode 2.  If you have listened to those episodes already, select another!

MY P.M. PRACTICE

Our new P.M. PRACTICE PAGES for this month in the journal continue this week as well.

Each night before I go to bed:
1.  I will note the three most dominant emotions I experienced today and write them down in my journal.
2.  I will circle the experiences that apply to me today in my journal (some new questions to think about here).
3.  (Optional) Coloring time!
4.  (Optional) Share or post in the facebook group to share my experiences.

WEEK 12 KICKOFF

By request, we are CONTINUING our weekly Monday morning Kickoff Zoom calls.  We may not be recording all of these.  Some of them are for us to connect and have deeper, more meaningful conversations and we know not everyone wants those recorded.  We will record when we can and share the recordings with the group.
