The Unfolding: a workshop in embodied presence

The Unfolding is an embodied journey, inviting you into deeper awareness and attending to your present moment experience. When we slow ourselves through restorative movement practices, we create space to sense more fully, to listen in, and to negotiate how to ‘be,’ instead of focusing on the ‘do’-ing.  

Held at Be Well Community Yoga (Canaan, CT)

Retreats

Sept. 19 – 21, 2017 (mid-week retreat)

Embodying Presence: The Practice of Awakening

a multi-day retreat at the Copper Beech Institute (West Hartford, CT)

With the practices of meditative movement, breathwork, and mindfulness meditation, we access the innate wisdom of the body to discover the path of awareness. Awareness cultivates the gifts of living in the present moment. Embodied practice invites us to draw our attention to habits and patterns of being — including reactivity, feelings of overwhelm, and fearfulness — and through guided explorations, we will learn about transforming these challenges, as well as honoring them. When we awaken to the present moment, fully and with self-compassion, we begin to transform difficulty into learning.

Throughout this retreat, we’ll go deep into the process of unfolding presence within ourselves, and in the understanding that we are always connected to others. To observe our minds with kind attention and outside of judgment, we will build the shape of heartfulness. Presence is a potent path to clarity in mind and body, and with supported self-care, we’ll walk this path to heartful awakening, together.

*This retreat qualifies for full or partial financial support to artists, educators, health care professionals and nonprofit professionals who wish to learn the benefits of mindfulness which they, in turn, may embody and apply in their work and in the workplace.
