Workshop descriptions:

“Mr Duffy lived a short distance from his body” (James Joyce)

In today’s society, we all live ‘a short distance’ from our bodies – it’s the consequence of our cartesian education. The mind is king and the body has to comply with orders given by our minds. How we must look, how we must move, how we must hold ourselves physically.
The body has become an object that should function and we mostly only pay attention to it when it doesn’t.

This way of living is responsible for a large number of physical and mental ailments.
As we don’t feel our bodies enough anymore, we miss its gentle whispers that tell us what we need, what is good for us and what isn’t. We live a disembodied life.

Coming back to the body allows us to live our life to the fullest, to enjoy what is pleasant and to fully concentrate on what is good for us.

Workshop 1: Developing your felt sense (September 25th)

To come home to the body, we need to be able to feel it. As we have unlearned how to do that as adults, the brain circuits responsible for feeling the body have been weakened.
In this workshop, we re-develop our felt sense – the ability to feel our bodies – through a series of mindfulness meditations both in sitting and through gentle movements.

Developing the felt sense through these exercises will allow you to feel your body in your day-to-day life, not just during practice.

Please bring your mat and wear comfortable clothes. If you like taking notes, bring pen and paper too.

Workshop 2: Befriending your body (October 23rd)

Now that we’ve re-developed our felt sense, it is time to repair our relationship to the body.
Most of us have a difficult relationship with our bodies, maybe we think we’re too fat, too thin, not flexible enough, not pretty enough, or whatever version of your body ‘not being good enough’ may apply to you.

In this workshop, we will reconnect to ‘the goodness’ of our bodies and honour it. Through a series of mindfulness exercises, we will learn to love our body as it is and be grateful for allowing us to live our lives.

Please bring your mat and wear comfortable clothes. If you like taking notes, bring pen and paper too.

Workshop 3: Living an embodied life (November 20th)

With a re-developed felt sense and a positive relationship with our bodies re-established, it is time discover what it means to live a fully embodied life. A life lived through the body and not through the head.

There are really no words to describe how much your life will change once you start living an embodied life. But if I was to try, I’d describe it as ‘always feeling home’ – wherever you are in the world, whatever your external circumstances, you are always home in yourself, always loved, always safe, always connected, always at peace.

Please bring your mat and wear comfortable clothes. If you like taking notes, bring pen and paper too.
