Align - A 5Rhythms® Movement and Mindfulness Workshop
With David Denis and Layah Jane
Feb 8-9, 2019
We live in a world that values "doing" over states of being. In the speedy race to get our lives done, we sometimes forget to ask ourselves, "What am I working towards? Am I living in alignment with my deepest callings and core values?"
When we praise high productivity, we often silence our body's signals to slow down. We may find ourselves feeling overtired, frustrated, anxious, or disconnected from a sense of purpose or joy.
How can we re-orient ourselves when we lose sight of our guiding light?
What practices can we turn to, to help us re-centre?
How can we align what matters to us, with what we give our time, energy, bodies, hearts, and minds to?
In this workshop, we will integrate the stillness of mindfulness meditation with the movement practice of the 5Rhythms. Together we will explore our relationship to doing and to being. We will feel into how we are being called to more fully embody our values and intentions for our lives, and we will dip into the wellspring of wisdom waiting for us right in our very own bodies and breath.
No previous experience is required in order to participate. This workshop counts towards 5Rhythms Teacher Training Waves prerequisites.
