Reconnect with Your Self: Proprioceptive Writing® & Yoga
Mahoosuc Mountain Lodge in Newry, ME
Join Kim to restore a sense of connection with your self through body and mind.
When: October 11-13, 2019
Why: Under the influence of everyday life, and the responsibilities we bear, as well as through traumas large and small, our sense of connection to our self may become weak, or disconnected. In this retreat, your natural robust aliveness is restored.
Gentle yoga awakens the body. Through unhurried, mindful movement you cultivate an attentive, curious,
open attention to whatever is arising in the moment through your body. Likewise, in a quiet, contemplative environment you attend to your thoughts and feelings in Proprioceptive Writing. Through this simple but profound method of expressing and reflecting upon thought, your natural sense of connection with the self is restored.
