This is small-group, affordable experience, open to all women.
With Stefana Serafina of www.intuitivedance.org (Caliornia)
Vinyasa Flow Yoga and Meditation with Claire Mangion of http://claireyogamalta.com/ (Malta)
Seeing with the body is to attune to the sense-based intelligence that surrounds us. It means to know deeper than our thoughts. To attune to the feminine language of life and guidance of our senses. To be able to access dimension and felt knowing through the sensuous instrument that homes our being.
Seeing with the body means to THRIVE...
But more often than not, layers of disembodiment, body-armoring, and cultural oppression are imposed over the natural flow of our bodies’ wisdom and sensuality, and muddy our sensitivity. Patriarchal imprints and emotional suppression inhibit the female body, its native sensuality, and its natural freedom and wildness.
Join us for this in-depth women’s immersion with visiting women’s embodiment teacher and women's empowerment facilitator Stefana Serafina, as we explore and rediscover layers of inner knowing, fact and mystery, and we learn new skills in cultivating ourselves as embodied, empowered, sensually liberated and internally rich women, connected to the feminine mystery while leading on the edge of social change.
During this immersion, we will work with the different layers of the feminine body- visceral, emotional, mental, sexual, and spiritual. We will reconnect to our bodies as the intelligent, intuitive, self-organizing living systems, constantly in contact with the deeper dimensions of the psyche and the natural world. We will practice the deep re-inhabitation of our bodies, our feminine being, and our sensual anatomy.
Each morning, Claire Mangion will be helping us to open the body-mind system with her unique blend of vinyasa flow yoga, and then we will follow with a day of in-depth explorations, learning, an transformative experience, while also leaving room for rest and strolling around the island.
Learning to 'see with the body' is a process greatly facilitated by being in the field with other women, consciously awakening the power, receptivity, and sensuality of their bodies and the embodied expression of their souls.
Will you join us?
DURING THIS IMMERSION, TOGETHER WE WILL:
