Qi Spiral Breath

Presence: Begin by grounding yourself in the present moment. Take three deep breaths, noticing the rise and fall of your chest. Let go of past regrets and future worries.

Active Listening: When conversing, give your undivided attention. Listen without planning your response. Feel the ebb and flow of the conversation, and immerse yourself in the exchange.

Nature Connection: Spend at least 10 minutes outdoors daily. Feel the breeze, listen to the birds, and touch the texture of trees or plants. Recognize nature's rhythm and your place within it.

Engage with Art: Listen to a piece of music, read a poem, or view a painting without distractions. Let yourself be moved, allowing emotions to arise without judgment.

Mindful Tasks: Turn routine tasks into meditative experiences. Whether it's washing dishes, walking, or working, fully engage with the process. Feel the water, sense your footsteps, immerse in the task.

Reflection: End your day by recalling three moments of resonance. They could be simple – a meaningful conversation, the taste of a meal, or a fleeting moment of beauty.

Remember, resonance is about a two-way connection. As you reach out and engage with the world, be open to letting it touch you deeply in return.

Hartmut Rosa's concept of resonance is a deep and multifaceted one. In his work, "Resonance: A Sociology of Our Relationship to the World", Rosa touches on the idea of a resonant relationship being characterised by three aspects:

  1. Affection: Experiencing the world as something that affects you and which you can affect in turn.

 2. Eudaimonic Evaluation: Experiencing the world in a way that feels meaningful and fulfilling.

  3. Momentum: Experiencing the world in a way that feels dynamic and alive, rather than static or dead.

For a deep and thorough understanding, one should engage directly with Rosa's writings. But in essence, these practices do aim to align with the spirit of Rosa's resonance theory.
