Finding Center and Breath
Transcript of Finding Center and Breath
- James Jordan
The Musicians Soul Singers with a good concept of center have......
Better balance and “base”
Fuller, less strident vocal production
An easier time with the concept of “awareness” Awareness is the state or ability to perceive, to feel, or to be conscious of events, objects or sensory patterns. In this level of consciousness, sense data can be confirmed by an observer without necessarily implying understanding. More broadly, it is the state or quality of being aware of something.
Finding Sensation- Yoga Nidra
Tension Awareness “Center is the place by which you stay both connected to the ground and the earth, and to the world around you. To be alive, you must always be aware of your center. Your center provides stability and strength. It provides the kindling for trust in self and trust of others. Most importantly, one’s center is the place from which human love, care, humbleness, selflessness, and giving flow. All that you believe is translated to the choir in an unspoken language.”
The Musician’s Soul Body Mapping is the conscious correcting and refining of one’s body map to produce efficient, coordinated, effective movement.
The body map is one’s self-representation in one’s own brain. If the body map is accurate, movement is good. If the body map is inaccurate or inadequate, movement is affected.
In Body Mapping, one learns to gain access to one’s own body map through self-observation and self-inquiry.

The Spinal Column ~ an Apple to its core
Flow of Breath Sing with your whole body please.
Are you aware of your breathing?
As you sustain the phrase is your spine lengthening?
Are you thinking up and over?
Are you balanced at your hip joints?
Are your feet feeling the floor?
Remember to organize your spine like an apple around a core.
Breathing moves from the top down; not like filling a glass.
Breathe through the front tube.
Breathe leaving your swallowing muscles alone.
When you breathe, your ribs do not expand, they make outward and inward excursions.
When you breathe in your spine gathers, when you sing your spine lengthens.
Experience the whole cylinder of your abdominal wall.

Breathing out slowly “As civilization advances, the sense of wonder declines. Such a decline is an alarming symptom of our state of mind. Mankind will not perish for want of information; but only for want of appreciation. The beginning of our happiness lies in the understanding that life without wonder is not worth living. What we lack is not a will to believe, but a will to wonder.”
Between God and Man If you don’t look for magic you’ll never find it.
