Pete Bengry - Tree of Life Festival talk - Room 2
“We breathe in and we breathe out. But how many of us are truly aware of the miracle of breath? With the discipline of awareness we can witness the breath as sacred sound guiding us to an inner silence.”
Breathing is one of the most crucial movements we perform everyday, yet we often breathe unconsciously. We cannot see what we breathe, yet we continue to breathe anyway. So our ability to trust this movement is a natural pattern in our daily lives.
Imagine if we could see what we breathe, would we choose to breathe it?
If we allow our awareness to witness the miracle of breath, we witness the miracle of life.
When we speak we share sounds, which contain information related to communication and emotion.
With this awareness we can become the ‘beginning of the birthing breath’.
Deep inside our lungs, we require oxygen, which influences our breathing, so the inhaled breath is the true requirement. But the exhale is the ‘sharing seed of sacred sound,’ and it is this that we are going to explore.
The use of sacred sounds within spiritual practises including shamanism is highly researched and as we know carries enormous benefits within holistic health and wellbeing.
The transfer and delivery of sacred sounds from ourselves to all life is a crucial part of our evolution on this planet.
Sounds contain frequencies, similar to the air we breathe, we cannot see them but we can sense them and feel them. Their impact upon ourselves and every living organism is highly influential to its evolution. We can change our perception towards how we see and we can change our perception towards how we sound.
“Every moment is the beginning of the birthing breath,
as we share the seeds of sacred sounds.”
“May our lives be a garden and may we each create sounds
within the sweetness of honey.”
