I AM forever changed by the practice of the Phoenix Rising Method. We practiced the experience of Mind/Body/Spirit connection, cutting through the surface to live more authentically. More importantly, I learned what it truly means to be in present awareness and develop the intuition that is offered through the syncing of body and breath. I was able to grasp what is missing from my current practice and how be able to continue what I’ve learned and share it with others - but this was more about my development than anything else. It’s so easy to get Ah-ha moments and teach revelations but that is very different from embodying what we speak and living the experience through practicing it.
