In todayâ€™s show, Episode 16, we speak with Sami Aaron.
Sami is a yoga and meditation teacher who focuses on yoga nidra â€” a meditation and conscious relaxation practice â€” and pranayama â€” the regulation of the breath through certain techniques and exercises. She is also the Director of Training and Development for The Nature Process â€“ which offers powerful tools for managing stress, improving mental health and releasing grief.
In this vulnerable interview, Sami talks about her own journey of walking through grief after her oldest soon took his life in 2003. She also shares about her labor and delivery experiences in the 70â€™s as well as how she discovered yoga nidra, pranayma and the critical role nature plays in her healing and wellness.
Some quotes from the show:
â€œFor women giving birth today and their support group, itâ€™s so vital to find that little bit of activism within yourself and tune in to what you body and heart are telling you.â€
â€œWhen youâ€™re in deep grief you donâ€™t allow yourself to open up because by doing so you are opening yourself up to more grief, so it is much easier to keep it in. And I know I did for many years.â€
â€œTo be able to come to the place where you can allow joy in again is a really hard part of the journey.â€
â€œDonâ€™t let anybody tell you how long to grieve. Grieve as long as your heart needs to, but know that you have the opportunity to offer up that grief to others in compassion.â€
Sami Aaronâ€™s nature process workbook,Â Experience Your 54 SensesÂ will be released on Amazon later this year. To learn more about The Nature Process, visitÂ thenatureprocess.co.
