Spiritual Wholeness and the Somatic Body

Spiritual Wholeness and the Somatic Body: Daylong with Rik Center

A day of SE/Somatic Experiencing, mindfulness and how this relates to the spiritual-self and coming into wholeness.

"What have you got to lose other than yourself? What have you got to gain other than yourself?"

"Connecting to our bodies allows us to come into our spiritual wholeness. It's not about going away and ignoring the body it's about bringing our whole-selves into the present that opens us up to accept everything without feeling crushed and overwhelmed." Rik Center

The Embodied Narrative: "Moving out of our Past"

The Embodied Narrative: "Moving out of our past" With Perry Lisker & Rik Center

"We can't create a new past though we can create a new future, and it begins by being in the present."

We each carry a narrative story within us that can often run our lives with an adverse effect.  In this daylong retreat we will unfold and begin to dis-assemble parts of our story that are not useful (and not us) and yet we cling to them because we may feel lost without them. It's often scarier to move into the unknown than to stay with known.

In this workshop Perry & Rik will work within a mindful-somatic awareness process that enables attendees to feel and see more clearly the benefit of "releasing" old painful stories and "moving forward" into new possibilities of clam and joy.
