Body of Earth, Body of Sky, Body of Heart: Accessing Our Physical, Energetic and Natural Wisdom in times of challenge.
With Herb Stevenson, Jackie Stevenson, Jim Kepner, Lourdes Kepner and the Pebble Ledge Herd
Thursday June 8th through Sunday June 11th, 2017
In our times of uncertainty and challenge we most need to draw on ways that support centeredness, grounding, awareness of the collective energies that surround us, to access our natural wisdom and to make wise life choices. Join us for a journey to your body’s innate knowing and natural connectedness through:
- Strengthening embodied presence
- Learning energy awareness practices
- Engaging with horses and the herd
- Tapping into the ancestral energy of the land
- Deepening your connection to the family of Nature
Each day will include experiential learning through body process and energy awareness, movement and stillness, ceremony and celebration, reflection time in nature, engagement with the horses and herd and sharing dialogue with each other. Creating a sacred space together we will explore individually and collectively our calling, purpose and contribution among 350 million year old glacial ledges and 1.1 billion year old white quartz pebbles.
The four day intensive will draw on these themes-
Day I Arriving– arriving in your body, arriving with each other, connecting to the land and orienting to the program.
Day II Body of Earth– developing grounded presence, connected to the deep nonverbal wisdom of our animal nature and rooting ourselves in the physical power of the natural world.
Day III Body of Sky– our energetic nature connecting us to the intuitive, the realm of vision and spirit, and the sacred in all things.
Day IV Body of Heart Within– the process of integration drawing on the wisdom of our connection with nature, with earth and sky, and with each other.
