Update March 19 2023
I do a solo tune at church on my 70th birthday. Youtube here.
Supplemental Hug along with the Joy Breath Meditation.
I edited it ... of course. "Believe or don't believe. Go see anyway."
clothed, seated, or standing, probably in public or small group.
Hugs are said to deliver oxytocin in 20 to 30 seconds, or
three to five deep, gentle breaths. I think it probably
works best for those folks up for it. It's not a challenge
or a demand for proof. If you're ready ....
Guided Hug Meditation
I’d like to share two minutes with you… We are collecting three memories to share
over three breaths or a minute - whatever feels best.
You are safe and sound in the here and now, yes?
Wonderful. Relax. Feel your breath. // Feel your chest rise and fall.
Let your shoulders drop.// Bring to mind a time of great joy.
Smile at the memory.// Smiling, feel your eyebrows and forehead loosen. Relax.
If you feel safe you may close your eyes if you wish.
To your memory of joy add a time of awesome wonder or beauty.
And Love. Remember love? Remember great love? Oh, my my.
Deep and gentle, we are going to take three full breaths in and out.
Pull your tummy at the end of exhale for more room to inhale.
At the peak of inhalation, remember the joy, the wonder, and the love.
Exhaling, one at a time, let the memory melt down slowly throughout your entire body.
Three wonderful memories shared over three breaths.
I am done talking now for a minute.
Thanks. I feel better already. Call it what you will; energy work, healing, etc. Thanks for the hug.

P.S. "This recipe works better with a pinch of love.”
While an hour of energy modalities, Reiki, Reflexology,
light massage, Jin Shin, Quantum Touch, etc., can offer
useful benefits, much shorter intervals also deliver
uplifting connection and integration.
