In thinking about the 2 workshops we gave this past weekend, one of the most interesting experiences was learning how to tune in to one's heartbeat.  
By doing this, we become one with the Earth.

This is how to achieve it:
1) Find your heartbeat, your pulse by placing your hand on your heart.  Your heartbeat should be between 50-60 cycles a minute.

2) Transfer your heartbeat to the sound of your voice.   

3) Transfer the sound of your voice to the beating or patting or tapping of your hand to a surface like a drum or a tabletop.

4) Continue for five minutes.
You have now become one with the Earth's rhythms, night and day, the four seasons the tides and the pulse of nature.

This is a good and relaxing feeling.
