Jared's really nailed down head movement to make reading from a prompt less obvious.
Concerning the video content, social amnesia makes the practice sound isolating... but it's a nice extension of focusing on individual wellness. I agree with the point of it's not serving a holistic purpose, if it's only use is to #LetThatShitGo. My bone to pick with that philosophy (which I think is the point of the video) is once you're there, the next question better be: Now that I'm 'centered,' what am I going to do about this stressor?
My introduction to the practice was with the intent of applying 'mindfulness' in the moment of a high stress situation to better navigate to your desired outcome.
Ya know, a given circumstance catches you off guard, so you:
1. Take a breath to relax
2. Evaluate how you got there
3. Evaluate where you want to go
4. Take action
Practicing mindfulness with a therapist through induced hypnosis (AKA a great nap), has only been refreshing in my experience. I don't think it really had many benefits further than reinforcing the pattern given above.
Now, Heartfullness was a stint I used to relax most recently, which was effective for an in the moment headspace grab. It absolutely gave tools to not implode in finals week. Yet, my last time there I 'woke' much earlier than the rest. Being in a dimmed room with people slumped over reminded me more of getting high, than 'attaining a higher level of consciousness'.
Guess it comes down to how you want to reach that place of 'inner peace'.
Don't really have a way to tie this video in as I'm typing, but I love this scene from Breaking Bad.
