May 4th (10am - 6pm) and 5th (10am - 4pm)
The Body's Invitation
This weekend will be suitable for people who have attended before, and also for those who have not.
What does it mean to be embodied? What does having a body give us in the awakening landscape? How do we apparently forget that we have a body? How do I "listen to the body"?
Of course we are always embodied - even when we are dis-associated, actually - but often we are not giving this our attention. When we are reminded, encouraged even, to sense the body, and sense with the body, there is usually a feeling of “coming home” and relief, and even chronic physical discomfort can feel easier.
We will be exploring how to do this with a blend of enquiries in pairs, silent sitting/lying down and free movement (no prior experience necessary).
It’s radical, and deceptively simple: the effects are immediate, always, and yet they can't be held on to.
And it is not about self-improvement!
Why I call it "this Beautiful Work":
the “work" part is the discipline of enquiry: the choice to bring our attention to what is actually happening, in the present moment,
and the “beautiful” part is about feeling the ease and the relief which arises, effortlessly, when we allow ourselves to experience the felt sense of each moment from (and as) awareness,
(whatever is going on),
and let it be enough.
Meeting others in a held space for the weekend, sitting together, sometimes in silence, moving, consciously breathing, and engaging enquiries and processes alone and with others offers a supportive forum in which to deepen our own self-enquiry, on-goingly.
There are 12 places on this workshop.
This weekend workshop is open to people who have not worked with me before.
