A simple routine unlocks a hidden sanctuary within you
Explore the Hydrean with your fingertip and feel the difference in elevation. There are three different types of intervals (grooves) all around the ring — short, medium, and long (1,2,3). You might also notice two longer elevations on opposite sides of the wheel, with each of them curving in opposite directions. Once you can identify these areas, start by placing a finger anywhere on the wheel and follow the directions below accordingly. Rotate your Hydrean in any direction to progress from one prompt to the next all at your own pace.
Listen to your body from within: emotions, pains, tensions, heat, etc.
Focus on relationships: family, lovers, friends, or the people around you.
Sense the world around you: floor, light, temperature, air, mountains, woods, etc.
Long elevation I—The Dance
An invitation to dance inside; engage all three intervals together.
Long elevation II—The Sacred
How do you answer the following question: ‘What is Sacred?’
Once you’ve mastered the basic routine, you can add an additional dimension to your Hydrean by including the short elevations into your practice. If a specific thought arises at any time during your practice, rather than pushing it aside, move your fingertip onto the next elevation on the wheel. Now take time to explore the thought in more detail before moving on to the next interval. If no specific thought emerges, ‘jump’ over the elevation, directly to the next interval.
