Tune into Nature’s ancient cycles of birth, growth, fading, death and seeding. Engage more fully with your own essential rhythms of continuous change and transformation. Open to richer sources of inspiration for your life and work. Throughout the coming year, author Diane Samuels and healer Ursula Barbieri are offering a series of half-day workshops at key points in the WHEEL OF THE YEAR.
Combining WRITING and MEDITATION, each workshop will take you on a seasonal journey to explore the balance between light and darkness and a deeper sense of creative engagement with our planet Earth.
Techniques are drawn from shamanic practices, yoga, meditation and breath work.
Writing exercises include free-flow, stream of consciousness, diving deeply into words, sensing our physical and emotional states to write from heart, mind and body.
There will be solo time to tune in quietly, enhancing personal awareness, as well as group time to share together.
We hope, by celebrating Nature's cycles, each participant will journey within to embrace the present moment more vibrantly, practice living more inventively and take greater conscientious care of ourselves, each other and the planet as a whole.
AUTUMN EQUINOX WORKSHOP
At the moment in the year when Day and Night are equal in length, we celebrate the harvest and all that has been reaped. From now on, light starts to decline, so we gather our resources in preparation for the darker months.
As troubadours and storytellers, each participant will create their own journey and tale. We begin by taking stock and giving thanks for all that has come to fruition as well as accepting what hasn’t and must be released. Tales of joy and sorrow, sunshine and cloud, dancing to the tune of the abundant world and glimpsing the shadows of the Underworld.
