Co-taught with Hope Martin

Our bodies hold our lives. They hold wisdom and energy for living and growing. They also hold our obstacles: anxiety, painful emotions and constricting habitual patterns.The more we are able to make loving contact with these places and live deeply from within our bodies, the more our stuck places transform, allowing for a greater joy and authenticity.

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.
