Join me as we gather in the warmth of great company to explore what it means to be fully alive; to live in our freedom and the wide expanse of our being. We’ll explore the places we often get stuck - our anger and pain - and ask ourselves “is this really worth my misery? Is the price I’m paying really worth my one precious life?” Then (re)discovering the power hidden in our choices and our perspective, that will ultimately lead to a richer, more meaningful life. This urban day retreat is dedicated to turning up the volume of that small voice inside of you, that has been telling you there’s more to this life that what you’ve been choosing. We’ll practice delicious, slow movement - somatics and yoga - to release held tension, along with meditation and rest to gain more clarity. And have a blast workshopping ideas and discussions on the struggles and joys of being human. I will provide writing and meditation prompts to help us ‘shift’ from that sense of stuckness into something larger —more open, present and curious – willing to take the ‘exquisite risk’ of being more fully ourselves. You’ll leave the day reconnected to and feeling excited about dropping into a more authentic way of living, inviting you into something new; something fuller and more alive! This is the perfect reset button. Bring a journal and pen. Who’s it for? If you’re feeling the ‘prod’ that is beckoning you to move up and out from all of the places of ungrowth and dark rooms of stagnant air – then this is for you! Complete beginners to yoga and meditation welcome and encouraged. Day and Time: Saturday 23rd March 10.30am – 4.30pm * You may also want to join us for the One Day Silent Retreat on the following Sunday. With guided meditations and support, we’ll be deepening and distilling this exploration and practice together * Price: £59 (please bring a light lunch).
