20 Mar to 27 Mar 2020
Retreat Type: 

Each day we will explore how the body can be a 'doorway' into listening to ourselves and take us into a deeper, more open and easeful relationship to our experience. We will offer guided and improvised movement explorations; for example how is it to feel ourselves made of the earth, to inhabit and breathe our bones and find the movements stories and images they hold.

Our explorations over the week will include movement, stillness, dance, drawing, dialogue and poetry.

We will also introduce the practice of authentic movement, which invites us to deeply attend to the body's impulses and follow their expression in movement. In this practice life becomes more spontaneous, creative, and more deeply personal, as we allow ourselves to become authentic to our own nature –more genuinely who we are.

Each day there will also be periods of meditation and free time as well as periods of silence.

No experience of movement or bodywork is needed to join us. If what we describe here resonates with you then it is for you and we look forward to meeting you!
