About the Silva Centering Exercise
Length: 17 minutes 37 seconds, with the gentle tapping of the Alpha Sound in the background
What to expect: If this is your first time practicing the Silva Centering Exercise, please review the information in the How to Find Your Center lesson so that you will know what to expect. This will help you get the best results and make the fastest progress. Thank you.
Alpha Sound: A natural sound that helps your brain adjust to the alpha rhythm.
Eyes closed: This recording is to be used with eyes closed, which makes it easier to find the alpha level, so do not play it when you are driving or performing any other activity that requires the use of your eyesight.
Relaxation is a priority: Remember that if, at any time, you feel uncomfortable, re-adjust your position to make yourself more comfortable. If you feel you must open your eyes for any reason, then open your eyes and make yourself comfortable. If you open your eyes, then go back to the beginning of the recording and start over. Any time you desire to relax, mentally or verbally repeat the word “Relax” and you will relax physically and mentally.
