Balancing Breathwork & Somatic Shaking: Naturalizing Your Nervous System with Marcus Blacker
The current culture in which we live can cause our body and breath to fall into a state of disharmony and dysregulation. Fortunately, the body is very wise and will come back into balance when we create the conditions for healing to happen. This session will introduce two practices which can aid that process: Tension and Trauma Releasing Exercises (TRE) and Coherent Breathing.
TRE is an innovative series of exercises that assist the body in releasing deep muscular patterns of stress, tension and trauma. The exercises safely activate a gentle and natural reflex mechanism of shaking or trembling that releases muscular tension, calming down the nervous system. When this muscular shaking/trembling mechanism is activated in a safe and controlled environment, the body is encouraged to return back to a state of balance.
If there’s one breathwork technique to learn and practice on a regular basis, Coherent Breathing is it. By breathing at a specific rate, known as the resonant frequency, this operates as a central conductor, bringing all of the other systems of the body into a state of coherence. When we add music and guided softening of areas of bodily tension, this style of breathing is a great way to achieve all of the benefits of meditation and more, without even trying.
Session length: 90min
Expressive Art Therapy
As we grow up and go through life, we move further and further away from our true and primal selves. One of the first ways we discovered the world around us as children was simple: PLAY!
Join us into a playful creative process of self-discovery, emotional growth and healing.
In this session we will use nature and art as a form of self-expression to nurture the connection with each other and nature, empowering you to co-create deeply meaningful experiences.
Session length: 90min
Yoga Nidra: Where was peace before I found it? with Seba Khanna
A practice centered around the remembrance of stillness. When in spaces like this one, it becomes apparent that there is a peace that exists in nature that is always present. The human being is no exception. Through movement, breath and yoga nidra, we experience this grand return of the human mind to its nature as one of immense and profound peace. Relax, surrender and enjoy the mystery.
