IN OUR HANDS: AN INTRODUCTION TO MUDRA MEDITATION BY ELA SPALDING — RECOMMENDED BY MARIANNE JACQUET

As we enter another introspective time with the pandemic, I felt it was appropriate to stay still for a moment and reflect on the bigger picture. What if our wellbeing can have an impact on our surroundings? And if so, how do we find the resources we need within ourselves? Through her work, Panamanian artist and dancer Ela Spalding shows you how. In 2018 she started developing ​​In Our Hands,​ a meditation toolkit based on mudras – the hand gestures used in yoga. The series features a box set of cards, each one combining a photograph with an emotion and breathing instructions. Spalding’s approach explores the relationship between somatic awareness practice and ecology, and her cards help us use this solitary time for inspiration. The cards provide a welcome invitation to reconnect with our own ecosystem and breathe just that little bit easier. (Text: Marianne Jacquet / Photos: Bui Luu Quynh Nguyen)
