"Almost anyone can learn to think or believe or know, but not a single human being can be taught to feel. Why?
Because whenever you think or you believe or you know, you're a lot of other people, but the moment you feel, you're nobody but yourself" ~ E.E. Cummings
Join Daphne for a therapeutic movement weekend to bring about embodiment and healing. Learning through our innate kinaesthetic spatial and emotional intelligence, we can unearth our ability to navigate the sometimes muddy waters of our chronically stress-induced body and busy mind chatter. We will do this by tapping into our felt sensations with the integration of our nervous system and the unique blueprint of our body-mind.
Instead of the usual visual-auditory based learning which are goal-oriented, we focus on the process of our inner experience and intuition to uncover new choices to move with greater ease. This body-sensing approach will create non-reactive pathways for the mind so that a healing space can be created for our overall well-being.
Embodiment of the Breath Body
The breath is the conduit between the body and the mind.
Learn how to tap into both the grounding and fluid quality of our inspiration and expiration as a perceptual baseline, and create easefulmovement between the play of stability and freedom. This session will help to create more awareness of how to harness on the power of the breath to anchor the mind to a state of focus, and allow the practice to unfold into a state of ease and steadfastness.
Embodying our Therapeutic Core
Are we able to initiate movement from the centre of our being so we can be stronger, more grounded, less fearful, and ultimately, free?
Deep core work requires focus and presence. It also calls for the body-mind to attend from the inside-out rather than the outside-in. Cultivate awareness to our energetic core through a holistic approach of breath work, visualisations, dynamic movements while also recruiting our 3-dimensional myofascial core for spaciousness, uplifting support, integrity and balance. This session will guide us into sensing, feeling, and acting from our essence. Embodying our authentic core will help with back pain, digestive issues, and gain mental clarity.
Sense, Feel, Restore: A deep dive into the Parasympathetic
In today’s fast-paced society, our attention is often glued to our electronic devices. The constant demands from work, family and society can inhibit our ability for us to find peace. Stress and anxiety are a result of our nervous system’s inability to down regulate from constant arousal (or “Fight, Flight, Freeze” mode)
Using a framework of gentle myofascial unwinding, breath work, restorative poses and visualisations to awaken our subtle body, we can bring stillness and tranquility to listen more intently to our deeper consciousness, allowing our nervous system to calm down to its much needed “Rest & Digest” mode, and the body-mind to reset and balance. This practice is aimed towards deep relaxation in which the organs and immune system can benefit from simply “being” instead of “doing”.
