Come Re-Member together. Remember the ancient connection between your whole body heartbeat and the heart beat of Earth. Umbilicus to the Earth, returning home to the ground of wholeness, we will have space and time on this day-long journey in cool mountain air to inhabit our bodies and listen to the Inner Knowing that rises up from this place.
In this sped-up, mind-driven world there is less breath, less connection to heart, to body, to self, to each other and to Earth. We have a responsibility to remember the ways in which we come alive and reconnect. Moving our bodies with Earth is remembering the she wolf of ourselves who never questions What Is TRUE.
In this long and luxurious summer day we will reconnect with ourselves, Earth and our sisters through the ancient mother tongue of movement, breath, sound, awakening senses, communing with Earth, speaking What Is True, writing and art. When we return home to our bodies, our essential birthright of presence, wonder, curiosity and Knowing returns…no matter whether there be heartbreak or celebration, gratitude and/or grief.
Together we’ll seek to touch and unwind the stuck places, the forgotten places, the silenced places, the tender places, the free and wild places, the sacred landscapes within. We will find our way together. There is no prior experience required.
