Embodiment Through your Senses: A Transformative Self-Care Retreat & Continuum Workshop       

October 30 – Nov 4, 2022

Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health in Stockbridge, MA

The primary language of the body is silent-felt sensation. This workshop will present a wide scope of views and opportunities to experience the wisdom and creativity of this language of your senses.

Discover the radical possibilities in health and well-being available when you combine the fluid movement practices of Continuum and mindfulness meditation with the principles of osteopathic treatment into the way you care for yourself. Cultivate awareness of internal experience through breath, sound, meditation, and movement, and integrate these practices into daily life, nurturing a renewed sense of devotion to self-care.

Restore trust in the wisdom of your body as you allow yourself to sense deeply. Step outside your preconceived notions about your body and discover your inner resources for resilience, adaptability, and change. This workshop offers the tools you need to access this inner healing realm on your own.

This workshop experience can be valuable both as a form of self-exploration and self-care, and as a way for practitioners to develop and deepen the perceptual skills used with patients or clients.

In this workshop we will explore innovative views of:

  • what our senses are and how we can cultivate experiencing sensation more deeply in your life

  • learn to support your immune health by being in touch with your senses

  • Re-emerge into the post-pandemic world with new self-care skills.

  • experience the effects of reclaiming the sensations and functions of your unmasked face, or how to better cope if and when you need to wear one

  • the relationship between the brain, the gut, the face, the heart, and health

  • perceiving “the field of the senses” in ourselves and in others

  • inner resources for resilience, adaptability, and change

  • cultivating curiosity as a way of coping with uncertainty

  • radically reimagine how you care for yourself

  • our interconnectedness with each other and with nature

All “levels” of ability and experience are welcome.
