SO many of us go through life saying ‘This is who I am’, ‘This is what I want’, ‘This is what I should do’, ‘This is all I can do’, ‘This is the best it'll ever be for me’ — but is it really?
In this powerful residential workshop, participants will be encouraged to explore and embody the rejected, overlooked, and forgotten aspects of body and soul.
Afraid of the unknown aspects of ourselves — 'good' and 'bad' — we often ignore, overlook, dismiss, and play down latent talents and qualities. Afraid of the unknown, we confine and limit ourselves, day after day, to the same mundane, narrowly circumscribed lives. We hide behind addictions, relationships, excuses. And so it is that great swathes of people suffocate in half-conscious, half-lives rooted in fear, apathy, and insecurity.
But what if someone showed you there was more to you, more to your life? What if you were given the opportunity and encouragement to connect/reconnect with the lost, forgotten, unknown aspects of yourself? What if you could feel more authentic, whole, and vital? What if, away from the naysayers and cynics, you and your dreams were given room to breathe and blossom?
In this powerful residential workshop, participants will be encouraged to explore and embody the rejected, overlooked, and forgotten aspects of body and soul. Within a supportive, nurturing environment, we'll explore the 'Shadow' and begin to take back what we've buried there, including our inherent 'gold'. We'll discover the power of dreams. We'll gather in wonder at the feet of myths, revel in the beauty of rituals. A feast for the imagination, we'll reimagine the stories we tell ourselves about our lives.
Participants will leave the workshop with images they'll never forget, a supportive network of new friends, an enlarged, expanded idea of themselves, and the courage to embody, express, and integrate the newfound facets of their personality into their daily lives.
In short, participants will leave transformed.
