25 Practice: Grounded Breathing with Teresa P Mateus of Mystic Soul Project

In this practice, you’re joining Teresa P Mateus of Mystic Soul Project for a grounded breathing exercise. It’s so simple, and so powerful. All you need is a space where you can focus, and to close your eyes if you choose to. Teresa will invite you to stand, sit, or lay down.

You can look forward to the next two installments of this 3-part collaborative series between Mystic Soul & Healing Justice Podcast publishing once every few weeks, with upcoming topics including “Indigenous Reclamation” and “Contemplative Activism & Healing Practice.”
