9-11th December 2022 + 20-22nd January 2023
Deepen invites the participant to consciously claim their highest potential through experiential processes that focus on the adult phase; where we become more adept at navigating life. The element that we embody is earth, the meridians are the spleen and the stomach.
The somatic focus, is The Receptive Body, deepening into the exteroceptive and interoceptive senses. The body as the receiver of a continuous flow of information that emanates from the field, we become conscious of ourselves in relationship to the the central dreamer and the dream of life.
Participants will learn to use practices from Hatha Yoga and spontaneous movements; exploring tantrik mediations and practices that connect us to the subtle aspects of our beings. By systematically placing our awareness in the subtle body we gain access to portals that open to different forms of consciousness. Deep healing occurs when we integrate the aspects of self that have unconsciously passed through such gateways. We discover how to use storytelling and metaphor in our therapeutic or movement-based practices.
The course will also explore the seven major chakras in depth. In particular, we elucidate the difference between the traditional practices and the formulation of the Western model, that has been developed into bio-psycho-social- spiritual framework, that is currently used by therapists and healers to diagnose imbalances and prescribe practices to bring the system back to balance.
Glancing into the research on mirror neurons supports our exploration of how movement and ritual can be used to develop rapport with others and also support executive function (regulated brain). This is particularly useful for yoga teachers and therapists, who wish to have a deeper understanding of how subtle body practices can be utilised for deep healing in clients or groups.
