Holding Space: A Movement Exploration

Holding Space: A Movement Exploration

This class is about holding space for your body, your spirit and your healing. While Jodi Schwartz-Levy will be holding space with guidance, music, intention, safety, and the like, the idea of holding space is meant for you to internalize, so you can hold healing space for yourself. Our society has taught us to put a lot of emphasis on the cognitive mind, so the purpose of this gathering is to learn how to listen and respond to the many other parts of ourselves: the dreamer, the spirit, the body, the creative process.

Holding Space is about creating a nurturing relationship to the self by the practice of listening, nurturing and tending to yourself. 
You are welcome to bring your own yoga mat if you choose to have padding. The floor is also delicious to play on and we have plenty of mats, blankets and bolsters. 
Also bring a journal to help you reflect and remember your process. 

Led by somatic psychologist, Jodi Schwartz-Levy.

Using Imagery to Enhance Rest & Work: Weaver's Way FREE Workshop
Nov

7:00 PM19:00

Using Imagery to Enhance Rest & Work: Weaver's Way FREE Workshop

A lesser known fact, borrowed from dancers and elite athletes, is how we can enhance performance of any task by engaging an imaginal component to whatever action we are doing.  In this workshop we will learn about different types of imagery, their uses, and identify which sensory modalities are most prominent in our imaginal realm.  We will then practice the Constructive Rest Position as originally detailed with the imagery of dance choreographer, Lulu Sweigard, to foster a deep state of relaxation.  

When we give our bodies a chance to return to their natural posture and our minds a chance to unwind (especially during the busy Holiday season), we can restore moments of stillness.  Done on your own, this nourishing practice offers a gateway into any activity requiring special attention, or is perhaps confounding your best attempts at a solution. While there are many ways to experience stillness, the use of creative imagery is an amazing tool for integrating cranial intelligence with intuitive wisdom. All sorts of possibilities come alive when we are cleared to learn and work in top form.

Beyond Fear
Oct

to Oct 14

Beyond Fear

We’re at a critical moment on our planet, one that may seem more terrifying with every passing day and with each new status update. What most of us don’t realize is that we have a conscious choice to either be part of the problem by engaging in the fear or to shift our perspective and embrace what’s happening. We can actually use it as an opportunity to bring about massive positive change. This isn’t about tuning out, but about tuning into a tapestry of higher perception that will open us to a new way of seeing and engaging with the world.

Friday, October 13th - Saturday, October 14th, 2017

Friday: 6:30-9:30: Ritual offering to honor Mother Earth, the mountains and stars.

Saturday: 12-6pm: We'll explore practices that will help us walk the path of balance and beauty.

Holding Space: A Movement Exploration

Holding Space: A Movement Exploration

This class is about holding space for your body, your spirit and your healing. While Jodi Schwartz-Levy will be holding space with guidance, music, intention, safety, and the like, the idea of holding space is meant for you to internalize, so you can hold healing space for yourself. Our society has taught us to put a lot of emphasis on the cognitive mind, so the purpose of this gathering is to learn how to listen and respond to the many other parts of ourselves: the dreamer, the spirit, the body, the creative process.

Holding Space is about creating a nurturing relationship to the self by the practice of listening, nurturing and tending to yourself. 
You are welcome to bring your own yoga mat if you choose to have padding. The floor is also delicious to play on and we have plenty of mats, blankets and bolsters. 
Also bring a journal to help you reflect and remember your process. 

The second class will be on 10/22/17 6-7:30pm.
One workshop is $25 or 2 for $40.
