The Body Does Not Lie: Mixed Somatics & Mindfulness Retreat

…in the beauty and magic of Southern Colorado!

Saturday, Jul 14 – Thursday, Jul 19, 2018

Daily CI Jams – Somatic Workshops – Trips to Natural Hot Springs – Hiking – Quiet Time in Nature – Home Cooked Meals – Love

We will approach the body as a living history, a continuation of thousands of years of sensorial interaction with dense and etheric worlds.

Does history choreograph natural movement of the body?
Where in the body is awareness concentrated?
Do you oscillate between feeling embodied and disembodied?
What life stories are hidden in the muscular tensions?
How does the body respond to physical contact?
How does the mind interpret touch?

Particular emphasis on:
– Discovering effortless, spontaneous movement.
– Deep inner listening.
– Noticing and releasing unnecessary tensions.
– Establishing congruence between mind and body.
– Finding joy in movement and playing like children.

We will use these questions to guide ourselves in the exploration of how connected we are to our history and allow the body to tell it’s story though movement.

Each day will be dedicated to somatic practices, guided introspection and meditation to ground the body, thoughts and emotions. Even a possibility for an impromptu Russian Bards concert!
