Give yourself the gift of renewing your connection with nature, both the natural world without and the vast natural world within. These workshops are designed to place you back into a simple, deepening relationship with the Earth and that part of Earth we carry around with us constantly, our bodies. The weekend will involve camping at Foxfield Permaculture LAND Centre, using the basic outdoor facilities, eating simple vegetarian food, and exploring our emotional connection to nature with workshop sessions run both outdoors and in the purpose built meditation Roundhouse.
Coming home to our inner selves is finding that place of pure being, in contrast to the world of constant activity and thought. Rather than frustratingly trying to quieten our minds, we will sink deeper into the feeling presence in our bodies, discovering how nature whispers inside us already. Having the confidence to feel and acknowledge this connection is something indigenous cultures have always done, and in these workshops we will be gently lead back to an awareness that actually we have never lost, but just covered up with our minds.
Deepening a feeling sensitivity to plants, trees and wildlife develops our ability to be present, with deep awareness and tenderness, to emotional energy held within our bodies. Once acknowledged, long held unresolved emotions can be gently held in the space of natural being and be allowed to resolve just by being held in this awareness, without the need for repeating the stories of the past. This clearing of long held energetic patterns gives new space and freedom for the natural clarity of who we truly are to be revealed - an 'emergence' into our real, and long sought for, empowered authentic Self.
If you know that there is some part of you still 'waiting in the wings'; if you feel that you are constantly talking in your head and not quite able to fully grasp life; if you would like to feel closer to nature, more at peace, happier and less stressed, then this might be for you!
