In April, we will be focusing on our ears.
As we "meditate" on our ears, we'll explore how noise, music, chanting, vibrations, and silence can improve our health, wellness, and healing.
For monthly email subscribers, you can stay updated on this ear meditation by checking (bookmark!) this page, which will summarize our ear meditation detox throughout the month, and follow me on Instagram where I'll post detox tips more frequently.

Since I have been fortunate enough to have just normal issues with my ears (like water clogged in my ears from swimming or changing air pressure on flights), I have never thought much about ears. Over the past week, however, I have been pleasantly surprised to have the opportunity to learn more.
Our ears are instrumental in our experiences with sounds, vibrations, language, and silence. They play an overlooked role in our moods, emotions, biological processes, and life experiences.
Over the next few weeks, one article per week will be released for our ear meditation theme. Ultimately, many practical nontoxic living tips lead to more simplicity, stillness, and connection to counter, or balance, or fast-paced modern experience that is more full than ever of high intensity and chronic stimulation.
First, a quick shoutout to key parts of our ears.
Our ears are generally made of the three main parts below. All these parts—and their sub-parts—work together to protect us from foreign invaders (like particles or infection-causing things), to communicate to the brain, and to help our balance.

Each month, we will "meditate" on a body part or system. The goal is to connect with our body, senses, and symptoms to rely on this curiosity and "listening" as guidance for a gentle, detox journey.
