Trusting the Wisdom of Direct Experience: Embodied Listening

  • Shambhala Mountain Center Red Feather Lakes, Colorado (map)

Co-taught by David Rome and Hope Martin

Shambhala Mountain Center - Red Feather Lakes, Colorado


Our bodies hold our lives. They hold wisdom and energy for living and growing. They also hold obstacles to living and growing––anxiety, painful emotions, constricting habitual patterns. The more we are able to live deeply from within our bodies, relaxing conceptual grasping and trusting the body’s greater wisdom, the more authentic and fruitful our lives become.

During this retreat, we will draw on three contemplative practices that cultivate insight, compassion and confidence: Mindfulness Meditation to relax mental holding patterns; Alexander Technique to release physical holding patterns; and Mindful Focusing to access deeper feelings held in the body. This workshop is highly experiential and includes periods of meditation, exploration of the felt sense, gentle hands-on bodywork, sharing together and humor.
