An awareness of embodiment is important to every person wanting to make a difference in the world. When we are embodied, our intuition and imagination are opened and available to us and to our community in new and profound ways. What does it fell like to be embodied and what is the process by which we can become more grounded in the body?
Two powerful bodies of work are combined in this workshop. the Body/Soul/Rhythm work that includes movement and expressive art developed by Mary Hamilton through the Marion Woodman Foundation, and meditation, reflection and integration through Walking the Labyrinth developed by Lauren Artress. Walking the labyrinth is a spiritual practice that quiets the mind, opens the heart and grounds the body. The labyrinth is a mirror of the soul that reflects back to us where we are on the journey. It opens the door to self-knowledge and allows us to comprehend and release the psycho-spiritual issues that need clearing.
Mary and Lauren will provide a cognitive framework and then guide participants in a process that nurtures the innate embodied wisdom. This work is evolving through Mary and Lauren's collaboration, expertise and friendship.
