What if connecting to yourself was familiar and something that you could trust?
What if you felt supported in finding and exploring that place?
Can you imagine setting aside an entire day just for you?
In modern life we often live disconnected from our bodies as a way to get by. From a very early age we are taught to override our body's needs. This pattern has developed over time, and is reinforced daily by society, the thoughts we keep, our family systems, religion, and the communities we live in.
As adults, we maintain the patterns of overriding the messages from our bodies in order to keep up and keep functioning. On top of this, our culture promotes busyness, over-scheduling, and disregard for the body as the norm, and something to strive for.
We are not designed to handle this level of prolonged intensity and neglect.
This kind of living breaks down our systems and can show up in a variety of ways:
-Chronic pain and illness
-Nervous system dysregulation
-Anxiety and feelings of overwhelm
-Overall dis-ease in the mind and body.
But there is GOOD NEWS:
Things do not have to be so hard.
The body is RESILIENT and capable of CHANGE. And in a supportive environment with the right kind of experiences, we can develop the CONFIDENCE and CAPACITY to live with more AUTHENTICITY and EASE in our lives.
Come join us in this day long workshop experience where you will have an opportunity to explore EMBODIMENT through:
-Guided Movement and a MELT Method Experience
-Nervous System Teachings
-Practical Skill Set Applications for Everyday Living
This is a TIME and a SPACE to RECONNECT:
~to our innate body wisdom~
~to our inner and outer cycles~
~to the support and power of embodied community~
Space is limited. Registration Required.
