Winter is a wonderful time to delve inward, and find depth and light through connecting to oneself. The practice of Authentic Movement fosters quiet internal attention and expands awareness of one's body and mind. By listening to the body, and finding movement from within, we explore the dance of presence, witnessing ourselves and others as awake and open as possible.
ONGOING AUTHENTIC MOVEMENT GROUP
Every other Monday, January–June 2009, 7:15-9:15pm $300
(1/19, 2/ 2, 2/16, 3/2, 3/16, 3/30, 4/13, 4/27, 5/11, 5/25, 6/8, 6/22)
Over the course of six months we will move, witness, and delve into this practice that opens us to our bodies and to a deeper sense of self. Simple and expansive, we can find states of being that bring greater ease and aliveness. Open to all levels of experience, this group is ideal for those who want to develop in the practice and feel a sense of cohesion and community through an ongoing group.
Saturdays, Feb 21 and March 21, 2:00-5:00pm
$40 each workshop or $75 for both
In these workshops will open to our bodies, listening to ourselves in new and expansive ways. By giving over to what is not yet known we are moved into authenticity, surprise & deep enjoyment. Come try it!
VASHON ISLAND RETREAT
