Movement and Meditation Retreats
Open to Your Wild Body
Late Summer - Listen with the Land
11th(eve)and 12th September
From your own home!
Time to be with with the land that you live on, to listen with it, feel it and become more attuned to your local environment.
Be it your back garden, the streets of a city or a favourite place in nature, the wind still ripples through the trees or buildings, plants still push their way through the cracks in the pavements, the sun shines, rain falls, the pulse of the earth is aways with us.
Take time to take drop more deeply into how you can nourish and be nourished by what is around you.
Explore how you meet with the land, allow its pulse, feel its rhythms and allow the the rhythm and expression of your body.
We will meet:
Friday 6.30 - 9.30 pm - with a sacred fire ceremony
Saturday 9.30 am - 6.30 pm
This will be a combination of guided movement sessions to encourage attunement with your body and rhythms - 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 Traditional Chinese Medicine 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 what is abundant in our lives and allow ourselves to be supported in who we are.
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.

Letting Go into Autumn
11th - 13th October 2019
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.
