Lina S Good question! This is very individual as to whether it feels relaxing or not. From an evolutionary/neurological perspective, we think it's because humans don't want to leave their viscera exposed if we are in an unsafe place where there may be predators. Not everyone feels that covering is relaxing though - personally I feel grounded and comforted when I use a blanket on my belly.
Hey Dana, this is just superbly delicious. Thanks for your gorgeous way of embodying the practice too. And your forgiveness meditation made me cry with that weird mixture of sorrow and joy when I listened and sang along a few weeks back. Thank you. You make the world a better and kinder place, Namaste, Annie
