"God help us to

live slowly

To move simply

To look softly

To allow emptiness

To let the Heart create for us.

Review of  Freya Bennett-Overstall's "3 Minute RECONNECT" recording on Insight Timer...

"There is no shortage of similar super-short exercises on IT, but this is among the best. Not a moment is wasted.

GREAT for beginners, but more experienced meditators can benefit from it too. Also lends itself to multiple listens." Ron Ehmke

"Dear Freya,
You have made a difference in my life. I use lots of your strategies in my daily life. I do deep belly breaths to get to bed sometimes. At camp I used so many of your strategies to fall asleep, to encourage myself to do activities and to calm down. The one strategy that works for me is deep belly breathing and when we bend our legs and put our hands in the air. My favourite activity was when we walked around in a circle (slowly). I'm very, very grateful that you were my mindfulness teacher/coach for 2017.
From Annabelle." (9 years old)
