An oxytocin-fueled embodied connection with ourselves and others.
You are invited to slow way down, to drop your attention within.
Make contact with the ground of being.
From this well, and these roots, we meet ourselves anew.
From here we find each other.
Let the animal body know that it is not only safe here, but it is welcomed, loved, celebrated and honoured.
Let the heart know that it is safe to love here, safe to sense and feel, safe to expand and contract, safe to trust its own intelligence.
Together, we gently welcome the shadow. No need to put on a spiritual face. No need to be anything other than what you already are. Nothing to fix, nothing to heal, simply a series of opportunities to be intimate with the ever-changing present moment.
The primary practice is done in pairs, laying down side by side, breathing with the body in a curious, compassionate inquiry of all that arises in real time within each person and between each pair.
