Our bodies are our true home:
the house in which we live, the sanctuary of our souls. In
this workshop we will explore how we can be more fully ‘embodied’ in
our daily lives and celebrate the spirit of our bodies in a
variety of ways.
We will look at how we treat our bodies, our attitudes towards them,
the energies within them, and how we can tap into the spirit and wisdom
held there. We will explore our whole selves through movement, massage
and other bodywork, exercises that increase awareness, meditation, in
nature, play, dance, voice work and healing. Ultimately we will, through
our bodies, seek to find and follow the deeper purpose and direction
of our lives.
