I am submitting this as a possible Sunday sessions question. I have struggled with hesitating articulations for the past 30 years and I think it has limited my progress in the course. It does not happen all the time but I think it puts an extra added tension in the system that can compromise the sound quality. I am getting better at “nonjudgmental awareness” and sensing when the hesitation is about to happen. I stop and do the Body’s Concert Hall Breath and begin again. I know that the trigger for me is making the pitch component. I have no problems doing pu lip ku kmt and tu with the visualizer and on walks; I can even do it with the horn in my hand blowing just air into the horn but when you add the pitch the problems start.
Looking forward to seeing you all on Sunday,
Will absolutely be addressed at the Sunday Sessions! Thanks for posting.
