Deepen into Winter
29th(eve) / 30th January 2021
Fri 6.30-9.30pm-with a sacred fire ceremony
Saturday 9.30 am - 6.30 pm
Online and in your own environment
A combination of guided movement sessions via zoom, dialogue within the group and exercises to take out into your local environment of your choice to support your listening with the land.
Opening to our inner rhythms and those of the elements can help us align with ourselves and the season. In the Classical Five Element system 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.
Through movement and meditation indoors in your own space and out in your local environment we practice how to listen more deeply to our own rhythms and those of the natural world around us.
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.

Listen with the Land-Late Summer
11th/12th Sept '20-online
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.
Letting Go into Autumn

This 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.
29th – 31st March 2019
This is the time of the Wood Element, which relates to vision, direction, birth and renewal. There is natural bursting forth of energy at this time, which we can attune to and harness, to help us in our lives.
