“Routine is what you do, and, rhythm is how you are in what you do”
“Our rhythm prepares us to live true to who we really are”
The morning was very much a free flow of discussion beginning with Alison asking if everyone understood what it means to have a rhythm and what sort of rhythm people felt they currently have.
One participant shared her rhythm used to come from her nervous system which left her feeling burnt out. By developing a more supportive rhythm and not feeling she has to be a certain way or complete all the tasks, she is experiencing that she actually has more time.
Another recognised that when she was lecturing she used to go into a different space and her body felt exhausted. Now she is making a point of staying with herself, in spite of any chaos around her and she can feel she is more energised and much more able to respond in the moment – a gorgeous reflection of the difference between being task oriented and focusing on an end result versus being present with you in each moment.
