As we reacquaint ourselves with our breathing bodies, then the perceived world itself begins to shift and transform. When we begin to consciously frequent the wordless dimension of our sensory participations, certain phenomena that have habitually commanded our focus begin to lose their distinctive fascination and to slip toward the background, while hitherto unnoticed or overlooked presences begin to stand forth from the periphery and to engage our awareness.

-David Abram, The Spell of the Sensuous

Breath is the bridge which connects life to consciousness, which unites your body to your thoughts.

-Thich Nhat Hanh

Hmm... I've been needing a good sensory cleansing, now that you mention it. My priorities have been all screwed up lately and my patience has been thin. Why is it so easy to fall captive to the ugliest routines? Only 11 days left 'til the ayahuasca trip though! (Hooray!)
