Hara - opening to the source of life
“These are the three centers: Hara – four finger widths beneath the navel – heart and head. The head is the furthest boundary – when you are the furthest from your being you are in the head. When you are closer to your being you are in the heart. When you are exactly in the center of your being you are in the Hara. And only through the Hara will fear disappear. Only through the Hara do you live for the first time authentically, honestly, without fear. And this life must be lived.” Osho
‘Hara’ in Japanese simply means ‘belly’. This energy center lies four fingers widths beneath the navel inside the body. It is referred to as the source of universal life energy, the power spot within your body. Japanese Samurai make use of its relaxed power and awareness in sword fighting. We use it for healing. In the Hara power, vitality and silence combine. The relaxed liveliness and confidence of a tiger and the consciousness of a Buddha combine to provide the clarity to live and act from the center. We clear from body and psyche that which hinders us on the path to our natural source of life. We find the treasure hidden within and no longer need to search outside for orientation and self-validation. Hara Awareness® work combines silence, presence and body awareness with ancient eastern wisdom and western psychological understanding. We will use hara and centering exercises and meditations. Deep relaxed belly breathing and movement from within, Katsugen Undo open for us the space of flow, of unity and total emersion in whatever we are doing.
