I hope you're well and healthy, and that you're ready to enjoy the long weekend starting this Friday evening.
And yes, I am aware that it isn't time off for everyone. Having operated in an industry for over 50 years where the practitioners were busiest when most of the rest of the world is off, has left me with no illusions about the significance of working hours.
However, we have our choices and the consequences, and we weigh up what we want, and where we compromise. For me, the privilege of doing what I did greatly outweighed what many would have seen as a disadvantage.
Part of what I worked in included the study of Breathwork, what it can do for us, and how it can be harnessed to improve, not to say transform, our lives.
I read a book last year by a man called James Nestor. It's about breathing and how it's being used now to bring health, well-being, energy and mental and emotional stability into many lives.
There was a documentary recently on the BBC, featuring this man, and I'm putting this link to it for your edification and use.
Some of you will recognise some of the the names I've mentioned to you over the years, in this interesting and enlightening piece.
Listen to it, and enjoy it.
