Somatic Practice

A Yanantin practice for you and your partner


Sit facing your partner. For a full minute look into each other’s eyes -- no expectations no searching, just falling into the color of their eyes. Take a deep breath and each take a turn placing your right hand on the heart of the other. Feel the person under your hand. What are the qualities your partner possesses that complement the qualities in you? Speak the qualities you see your partner possess.

Take a moment; take a breath and then switch roles.

After you complete this, have a short conversation about what qualities you may see as non-complementary. How can these seemingly opposites complement each other?
