SPRING AWAKENING

Notebook 2_edited.png

Dear friends

Spring time evokes a wonderful awakening of our senses. A chance to step outside, feel the warmer air, the longer light and re-energise those deeper, longer breaths.  

Elevating our sensory experience of life is one of our intentions at OPO, the more present we become, the greater we can sense into life. This can bring an energising, stimulating connection to the world within and around us. 

If you are feeling the spirit of adventure and wanderlust with the arrival of Spring, venture out out to one of our portals in the OPO app, if they are close by, or try some remote listening on an outdoor walk. Or if you are at home or indoors try the Journey In section of the app for sound and meditation that elevates our senses.

Here’s to Spring awakenings and all the gifts that this beautiful offers,

Chris. Elliot and the OPO team

JOURNEY IN:

Awaken your senses with our Energise sound bath.

Our OPO community often mentions this as one of their favourite sound journeys on the OPO app.

Spring mornings are bright and fresh - a perfect time to connect to sunlight outside. Take this sound bath with you as you start your morning. Whether it's to relax after a workout, or to power-up for your day ahead.

VENTURE OUT:

INTO THE MORNING SUNLIGHT

Dr. Andrew Huberman, explains in this fascinating interview that if sunlight reaches your eyes soon after you wake, it triggers a neural circuit that controls the timing of the hormones cortisol and melatonin. This in turn helps to improve our sleep wake cycle which brings many health benefits. 

So every morning, our invitation is that you take some sky time straight after sleep. This will open your senses, improve sleep and improve quality of life.

OPO COMMUNITY:

A TASTE OF SPRING

by nutritional therapist Eve Kalinik.

As our senses shift with seasonal change, so do our options around what to eat and what nature provides for us. Eve Kalinik is a nutritional therapist, author & podcaster. Her latest book 'Happy Gut, Happy Mind' is an extraordinary insight to how a healthy gut is fundamental to our overall well-being both physically and mentally.

OPO founder Chris Connors and Eve are currently piloting their InStill retreat based on the mind-gut connection and how realigning to natures cycles improves our whole system. Look out for more information on our website.

We took a moment to ask Eve about what Spring brings for her and how it awakens her senses….
