Ground, Heart, Intent, Openness: Embodying Presence and Embracing Life – Workshop – October 19-20, 2019

A two-day workshop integrating bioenergetic bodymind work with awareness practices.

  • Is it possible to actually live your life as an adventure, in such a way that whatever you are doing in the world is part of a process of waking up to your true nature and actualizing your unique talents in the world? 
  • Is it possible to live effectively and powerfully in the world while attending to and nurturing your inner spiritual life?
Integrating the realm of being with everyday life

We’ve come to believe that psychospiritual practice and the realm of everyday life are somehow separate. But as we work mindfully in everyday life with presence, energy, stability, clarity, power, and compassion, we discover that we are working in the realm of being.  The realm of everyday life and the realm of being are not different.  They are both expressions of life as a whole, and the tools for awakening to our nature and the tools for living well are the same tools

In this new bioenergetics bodymind class coming up Oct 19-20, 201 9, you will explore the combination of awareness, grounding, breathing, energy, moving, and feeling that are integral to bioenergetic body-mind practices. In this class, we’ll work with the qualities of Ground, Heart, Intent, and Openness – powerful processes at the core of which lie Presence and vital energy. These processes are components of the Elements of Power mentioned in this article.

Join us for this two-day workshop to learn five powerful bodymind tools you can return to over and over in the midst of everyday life. Learn how the elements of Presence-Energy, Ground, Heart, Intent, and Openness offer fundamental practices for recovering your attention and for personal awakening. Learn, too, how they have application in every area of our lives to help us live effectively and well.

The workshop is a combination of individual and group work – and integrates active bioenergetic bodymind and awareness exercises. Bioenergetic practices combine awareness, sensation, breathing, movement, energy, mind, feeling, and relationship. You’ll come away with renewed presence and energy – and with practices you can use every day to support your living with presence, vitality, and grace.

The workshop is on Saturday October 19th (9 am – 5 pm eastern) and Sunday October 20th (9 am – 4 pm) – at the Florida Society for Bioenergetic Analysis – in Alachua, Florida.
