Elemental Body: movement, nature and meditation
Subhanaya works at Dhanakosa and was ordained in 2021. Time in nature, in the water and wild places, is an important part of her spiritual and embodiment practice. Dance and movement has been a major part of her life and practice for 9 years, she is currently training to teach Open Floor movement practice, more on her website here.
Moksadhi (she/her) first encountered Buddhism in Nepal in 2012 and has been following the Buddhist path ever since. Her passions lie in exploring external and internal aspects of wilderness. Her practice follows an embodied approach to finding qualities of spaciousness, wildness and freedom in both meditation and movement. Moksadhi was ordained into the Triratna Buddhist Order in 2019. She is currently training to become a yoga teacher with Bodhiyoga and regularly leads retreats at Dhanakosa.
An ideal first regulars retreat. These retreats take themes from our introductory programme and introduce a stronger Buddhist context through meditation, teachings, up to 3 days of silence, ritual and chanting.
Open to anyone who has done an introductory retreat or has been attending a local Buddhist centre, is familiar with Buddhist practice and is looking to take it a bit deeper.
In this going deeper retreat we will take an embodied approach to exploring our experience as elemental beings, alive in a living world. We will use dance and movement, alongside nature awareness practice and meditation to awaken our senses to the different elements of the surrounding landscape, cultivating a deeper sense of connection to ourselves and our world.
In the dance we will explore the elements through our movement, listening to the pace and ability of our own individual bodies. No previous experience of dance is needed, only a willingness to explore your body in movement within a supportive group.
Going Deeper retreats are an ideal first regulars’ retreat. They are suitable for anyone who has already done an introductory retreat or who has been regularly attending their local Triratna centre and wants to take things deeper.
