5Rhythms Workshop

with Jo Cobbett, 21-23 November, 2016. This 5Rhythms® weekend is a dive into our inner landscape with movement, exercises and presence. It is about discovering the transformational power of movement through embodiment: presence inside of vitality. This is a dance of the self within the collective field, and through meeting ourselves in this dynamic moving meditation we can find our centre, our connection, and our community. We will explore: how we follow and receive, meeting the ground with fluid engagement; how we express and shape life, meeting our edge and through form and intention embrace the fire within, and; how we integrate these and discover our own commitment and surrender, becoming the dance.

Kind Awareness Retreat

with Jason Murphy, 5-12 November, 2016. This retreat will be an opportunity to deepen into the practices of mindfulness, concentration and compassion. These age-old techniques will be offered in a practical and pragmatic form designed to help the participants gain insight into the nature of this mind/body experience as well as develop a kind-hearted approach to the struggles of life. Each day will include gentle guided instruction, silent reflection, walking and eating meditation, and mindful movement (Qi Gong). Each evening will feature a dharma talk (teaching of the Buddha) and specific instruction in developing open-heartedness.
