EMBODIED LISTENING: A Day Retreat
with Sharon Smith Carter
Thursday | May 2nd, 2019 | 9:30 am - 4:00 pm | $108. plus HST
Space is limited.
Do you often feel on auto-pilot…. with your life…your body…?
To be embodied is feeling at home in your body, with an increased ability to be in your body in the present moment and to feel all of its sensations (emotional and physical). I refer to it as finding the spaces between each breath.
This focused day brings you back to the simple process of paying attention to your internal experience and finding interoceptive awareness of being YOU. This day retreat incorporates movement - gentle soma yoga and somatic movements, the moving meditation of Taiji Qigong Shibashi and the quiet stillness of Yoga Nidra in the historical Hive Centre nestled in the Wilmot Creek Commemorative Forest. A simple vegetarian lunch and self-care inquiries will round out this mid-week break.
Space is limited. A little heaven in Leskard (Orono).
