Breathing Room Series

This Breathing Room Series of contemplative motional art is inspired by the Somaesthetic philosophy of Richard Shusterman.

Somaesthetics is the practice of cultivating the sense perceptions of our bodies in order to heighten our aliveness so we can engage with everyday life as an aesthetic experience.


Step 1: Find a comfortable seated position and invoke basic rhythmic breathing to slow down time and let your brain rest.


Step 2: As your body settles in place, let your attention alternate between focusing and wandering so you can regenerate your energy as you receive the beauty of the natural world.


Gift yourself with some breathing room and take a sensory journey into the aesthetic mystery of NatureBeingArt.


Each video is 10 minutes or less.

What People are Saying:

Transporting, timeless, infinite, exquisite both in sight and sound.     - Jim, somatic psychotherapist


So soothing to watch - truly a visual and audio meditation. The opening photograph reminds me of a classic Chinese mountain painting. While I was watching the video, I let go of trying to figure out what each image was and just enjoyed the beauty and subtle transformations. - Lesley, artist and dancer

Watching it has transported me into a deep contemplative state of mind and I am delighted to be a privileged witness of such a graceful and amazing world. I love how the images blend and melt one after the next letting my eyes, my heart and my attention be moved. A deep feeling of being part of this awesome nature; I let the images come to me and at the same time I feel as if I am going toward them and being watched by the image. - Isabelle, dancer and teacher
