Releasing Tension Through Reggie Ray’s Body Work

“As we release tension, we can feel increasing connection with the earth. Tension is in fact, a damned up life force that flows from the earth into our body, and should flow through us, in the form of naked empty experience back into the earth. But, our ego appropriates that energy and damns it up and it turns into the rampant tension of the ego body—the body that has been frozen by the ego using the life force….As we’re breathing and letting go of tension, not only are we releasing it into the earth, but the earth is drawing the tension down into herself, and drawing us into closer connection to her.”
