Nature and Body Retreat Days

An opportunity to reconnect to the innate intelligence of your own body and the world around you; feel restored and nourished through the autumn and winter months. These days are based on mindful body awareness, combined with nature awareness, and informed by the sensitive practice of somatics.

Each retreat day will include; Gently paced awareness exercises, time indoors (in a beautiful rural studio with under floor heating and wood burner) and outdoors, in stillness and movement, appropriate scientific, anatomical and physiological knowledge and personal experience. There will also be an optional shared walk, a shared lunch and a tiny, tiny bit of foraging.

Lungs_Air_Environment

Lungs|Breath|Environment

Sat 3rd March 2018, 10-5pm, at Roselidden Farm, Helston, Cornwall, £55pp

We will connect to the process of breathing; the presence of the lungs and their life capacity, and how air connects both our internal and the external world we live in (taking in oxygen created by plants and breathing out co2 for the benefit of plant life). The fullness of your breath can reflect the degree that you are engaging with life, and your capacity to let go. It can be the place of grief, sadness and feeling positively sated of life. Through compassionate awareness and attention, you can learn to support your body’s respiratory function, which in turn supports the trees, plants and marine algae.

Heart_Nourish_Vitality

Heart|Connection|Vitality

Sun 23rd Sept 2018, 10-5pm, at Roselidden Farm, Helston, Cornwall, £55pp

We will connect to our own hearts, each other’s and the heart of the earth itself. The heart is the organ of love, joy and vitality; an involuntary pump that sends oxygenated blood around the body to nourish all of the body’s cells. It has a particular connection to the eyes and hands, as you reach towards another, towards the world. Its powerful magnetic field is stronger than that of the brain, enabling it to have a significant impact on the rest of your body and the environment surrounding it.

Bones_Core_Strength

Bones|Core|Nourishment

Sun 18th Nov 2018, 10-5pm, at Roselidden Farm, Helston, Cornwall, £55pp

We will connect to the bones of our bodies and the ancient bones of the earth; stone. Your bones are living and blood full; receiving and storing nourishment deep within your bone marrow. The bones are at the core of your being, can conjure up a satisfying sense of stillness, and a healthy sense of self. Connecting to your bones can increase these valuable qualities and provide an internal anchor as you engage with the world.

Cells_Rest_Nourish

Cells|Rest|Ease

Sat 19th Jan 2019, 10-5pm, at Roselidden Farm, Helston, Cornwall, £55pp

We will learn to connect to ourselves and the world through cellular awareness and relearn how to be, rather than do, and be, while doing. The trillions of cells within each of us are where healing happens, and the essence of all cells is deeply restful and restorative. Ease and graceful living can be the gifts of connecting to both the gravity and lightness of your cells, as you watch the stillness in the sleeping, wintery, natural world.
