Bones / Core / Nourish
An opportunity to reconnect to your body and nature, and feel restored and nourished through Autumn and Winter.
Why bones, core and nourishment?
The bones are living and blood full; receiving and storing nourishment deep within your body, in your bone marrow. The bones are at the core of your being, can emanate a satisfying sense of stillness, and a healthy sense of self. Connecting to your bones can increase these valuable qualities and provide an internal anchor as you engage with the world, others and your self.
About Retreat Days
Body and Nature Retreat Days aim to align you with the innate intelligence of your own body and the world around you. The days are based on mindfulness body awareness, combined with nature awareness, and informed by the sensitive practice of somatics. Soma means to ‘experience the body from within’ and is a profound way to connect to the inner landscape of your body.
Each retreat day will include; Gently paced awareness exercises, time indoors and outdoors, in stillness and movement, appropriate scientific, anatomical and physiological knowledge and personal experience. There will also be an optional shared walk, a tiny, tiny bit of foraging and shared food.
>Increasing your understanding and support of your own body
>Feeling more connected, nourished, well and alive
>Learning to listen to the innate intelligence of your body and nature
>Rediscover the interconnectedness of all life, and how to tap into it
>Experiencing your body as part of nature and how they support each other
Who is it for?
Retreat days are suitable for anyone wishing to connect to them selves and the natural environment; to receive and engage in a nourishing day, paced with movement, food, stillness and walks. You may already have your own practice in yoga or mindfulness, be a health practitioner, or just somebody who needs a break and some food for your body and soul.
