    Music: "Halan Shilan Kundali" from "The Monastery Garden - Music for Contemplation" by Opera to Relax operatorelax.de

    The Breathing Room Series of contemplative motional art is designed to slow down time and create "breathing room" for the viewer. The videos of Jamie McHugh's visual art of the natural world (NatureBeingArt) accompanied by spacious music are inspired by Richard Shusterman's philosophy of Somaesthetics: the theory/practice of cultivating bodily sense perceptions to heighten aliveness and increase awareness of sensory beauty so that everyday life becomes more of a sensate and aesthetic experience.

    First step - focus on the rhythmic action of your breathing, slow down your exhale to slow down time and rest. As your body settles in place, your mind can wander as you listen to the soundtrack and receive these photographs of the natural world slowly transforming, one image to the next, without trying to figure out what you are seeing. Best viewed with HD setting and on a big screen.

    "The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you,
    Don't go back to sleep.
    You must ask for what you really want,
    Don't go back to sleep.
    People are going back and forth through the door
    where the two worlds touch.
    The door is round and open,
    Don't go back to sleep." - Rumi
