Open to Your Wild Body
Letting go into Autumn
22nd-24th October 2021
Rhythm of nature
Rhythm of the land
Rhythm of my body
A residential weekend of movement and meditation, in relationship with nature and the warmth and inspiration of time spent
around a Sacred Fire
Anna Murray Preece
Opening to our inner rhythms and those of the elements can help us align with ourselves, and the season. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, Autumn is the time of the Metal Element, which relates to our capacity to value and let go of what has been so that we can open to new inspiration. Just as the leaves fall from the trees, revealing their essence, so too can we return to the wisdom of our essential nature.
We will work indoors and out, in the nourishing Dartmoor landscape. Through awareness, movement and meditation we listen to and build an intimate relationship with ourselves, our body and the land to receive the gifts of Autumn. In this way we deepen our connection to our energetic and feeling nature and increase our capacity for embodiment, presence and expression.
The Sacred Fire can help us connect to our hearts and inspire us on our soul’s journey.
Knowing ourselves as part of the land, the plants, the weather and the fire,
we explore where our inner sacred essence meets the sacred in nature.
Accommodation is comfortable, with individual ensuite rooms.

Winter is the time of the Water Element, where we can rest and drop into a deeper relationship with ourselves. Through this we regenerate and replenish our energy, preparing the soil for the new seeds of spring and the year ahead.

This is the time of the Earth Element, which relates to our capacity to receive nourishment and nurture ourselves. Through this we are able to digest our food, our life experiences and to feel a sense of belonging. This is a time to receive and open to the abundance in our lives and allow ourselves to be supported in who we are.
