Recently a colleague of mine sent out a recommendation for building resiliency and wellness and reducing stress. It was an iPhone app called Do As One Breathe Together. I am totally enthralled with this app! I am telling my stress-ridden clients to get it and practice breathing, reflection and pausing throughout their day as a way to interrupt the mindless running around from meeting to meeting and replace this with mindfulness and clarity. All it takes is a couple of minutes and anyone can find a couple of minutes several times during the day.
You can also visit their website at their breathing room when you need a break and use the online version to breathe deeply with others. You can even personalize the experience choosing colors, words and mandalas (visuals) as you wish. Check it out and let me know what you think. I for one think it is amazing.
Do As One is a non-profit started by three friends who care about creating a healthy, connected world.
The Goal: To serve and connect humanity by establishing a legacy of healthy, conscious breathing.
The Vision: One billion people will breathe together synchronously by November 11, 2012.
The Method: To share techniques for daily, optimal breathing and enable global, synchronous breathing through DoAsOne.com.
They use 13 Grand Intentions hourly to connect those breathing together. The 13 Grand Intentions are Unconditional Love, Nourishment, Peace, Health, Oneness, Harmony, Compassion, Joy, Beauty, Conscious Breathing, Abundance, Gratitude and Forgiveness.
