This five week live series is inspired by the five elements of Ayurveda and modern day practices for regulating our nervous system, and the influence this will have on our relationships.
We are relational beings designed for connection, and yet many of us struggle in the daily experience of relating to other (lovers, friends, our children, parents). These experiential and informative classes will build upon one another in looking at our patterns that may keep us from getting the thing we want- more intimacy. Classes will include lecture, embodied meditation, dyad work, and developmental exercises.
We may know all the theory and concepts and even ideals of what it means to be in relationship, but that does not mean we have the internal organization for a more quality engagement. Each week participants will come away with practical and subtle life centric tools to utilize in their daily lives. Just showing up has the potential to lead to more fulfillment in cultivating more emotional connection with self and other.
This offering is available to anyone that wants to explore more about the realm of relationship. Most of us have spent much of life studying what to do and how to be, yet relationship skills have been left out of the curriculum. Come as you are. You are welcome to attend with your beautiful self, or with a friend, or a partner.
We will have cushions for the floor, and folding chairs if preferred, however please feel free to bring something comfortable to sit on if you’d like. Suggested to wear comfortable clothing, and have a journal and pen, and water.
