Deepening the Senses – A Journey Inward –
To be sensual, is to respect and rejoice in the force of life, of life itself, and to be present in all that one does, from the effort of loving to the breaking of bread – James Baldwin.
You are invited to join me for the popular Deepening the Senses Workshop Retreat, now available for a One Day Experience in the beautiful newly opened woodland Retreat Centre ‘The Sanctuary’ in Clarinbridge in Co. Galway.
During our ‘Deepening The Senses’ Day Retreat we explore the world of the senses – awakening a more grounded authentic connectedness to ourselves and bringing conscious awareness in our bodies to our presence in the world. Through the realm of myth and dreams we will deepen into the senses, drawing on our connection to the wisdom of the landscape around us, attuning to our own inner journeying, appreciating in our subtle bodies the richness of the present moment in our lives.
When we listen to myths, if we let ourselves step into their world of poetry and imagination, we step out of the rational concrete patriarchal world of our time and into the symbolic life. In this way we become receptive to our inner environment, and the energies of life and the archetypal patterns living through us.
During the retreat we will spend time indoors and outdoors exploring that sensory embodied connection. We will also be utilising the medium of poetry and images, gentle mindful movements, meditation, art and dream imaging, exploring the language of our dreams and their symbols in our psyches to assist us. The day retreat will provide a nurturing space with time to let go of everyday commitments and attune to ourselves.
There will be free time to walk in the lovely woodlands surrounding the centre, or sit in the walled garden nearby or rest in the sanctuary itself by the log fire. It is a day of connection to the self, a day for deeper nourishment and enjoyment in a beautiful tranquel setting.
You will have freshly baked scones mid morning with tea and coffee as well as enjoying a good nourishing two course lunch. Snacks as well as tea and coffee are available throughout the day. We aim to create a warm atmosphere where we will awaken the senses, deepen our understanding of ourselves and explore the sensual in our everyday lives.
Prior experience of body work and personal therapy work, whilst desirable, is not essential.
