After our first journey of Deepening Connection this winter, Will and I are excited to go deeper and offer it again as we move into spring together. You are invited to honor the growing aliveness of spring as well as the spark of connection and longing for deeper connection that lives within you.

Join us to return to your essence and nourish your wholeness in connection with the elements learning from these raw forces of resilience that live within each cell of our being. Join Will Michael, Advanced SOMA Breath Instructor, and I in the inquiry of how the wisdom of our bodies, the wisdom of the land and of the elements can support our deepening growth within ourselves as the awakening of spring returns within and around us.

You will be guided through gentle trauma informed somatic practices that are intended to support you to deepen your relationship to your body through the body systems as they relate to the larger natural body systems of our planet Earth. Will then offers breathing practices that have been adapted to the element that we are working with each week. We will also connect with others through authentic movement that allows for vulnerability and authenticity to emerge from the body in both moving and witnessing that we can then bring into a group sharing in circle.

Here’s what you will receive and learn during the 5 weeks:

-Build up your immune system through tapping into your embodied resource and inner medicine
-Practice renewal and regeneration through connecting with the elements in the body
-Learn simple and powerful breath-work techniques
-Learn about and practice cultivating ritual with the elements and with the land to deepen your relationship with place
-Practice being more alive and present in the moment
-Sacralize your life through deepening your relationship with yourself and/as the elements in simple rituals
-Resource your own inner guidance through our body
-Connect deeply with yourself and others even on zoom! It is possible!
