Moving in Grace is a mindful embodiment journey that invites us to cultivate resilience as we allow our bodies to unwind and our minds to reflect from a place of curiosity. This workshop will offer guidance to connect our body systems with the Earth systems through the elements (Earth, Water, Fire, Air, Ether).
There will be a guided somatic meditation into movement and sounding with improvisational musicians co-creating the pulse with us. We’ll be accompanied by Amanda Turk on hand pans and hand drums and Eric Grab on the guitar, djembe and didgeridoo
Come to Moving in Grace to find yourself in love: with yourself, with the Earth and with others in community; to allow yourself to InBody the Change that you wish to be through this love; to learn how to be deeply with yourself around others so that you can fully express yourself with others and cultivate more loving connections. Let go of trying, rest in knowing you are enough and allow this knowing to guide you towards what nourishes, nurtures and enlivens you as you bring the light of your awareness into the darkness.
This is a space for us to be fully ourselves with the rhythms of our bodies and the Earth. We will move what needs to be moved and celebrate being in the mystery of life as we InBody the Change we are becoming together in grounding, nourishing, sensual, playful and expansive expression!
