This series is an offering of time and a beautiful safe space to explore and practice practical simple yet truly alchemical skills for living a more fully embodied, spiritually infused life. An ability to shift in any moment into more relaxed awareness and open-hearted responsiveness. The evenings together include guided and solo meditation, healing breathwork, somatic exploration, ceremony, dyads, group sharing.
Embodied Essence is about choosing and practicing fully embodied, open and heightened awareness, open-hearted presence. It is learning how to quickly come to an awareness of choice. It is a skilful means of moving from reflexive reactions to situations, into fuller conscious choice; bringing ourselves gently back into full presence, even in the midst of being triggered. It is a remembering of who we are in essence, accompanied by a gentle compassion and patience with our humanity and propensity to forget and fall into protective patterns.
The more momentum of practice, the more available we are to fully open in heightened awareness, actually perceiving more fully with our senses, ~ colors even become more bright! ~ and open-hearted presence. This is soothing to others and invites a softening, a feeling of deep safety, an invitation to open hearted exchange.
Let us join together in a practice of essentially relaxing more fully into our Light Bodies ~ through breath and internal awareness meditation!
There is no charge for this series, the offering requested for each evening this series consists of a $10 or more donation to the venue, The Temple at Pleasant Hill.
