Journeying: Movement as a Metaphor for Life with Lola Manekin
December 16, 2017 |2:00-6:00pm
As human beings, we have a tendency of attaching stories to all circumstances that happen in our lives. We judge things as either good or bad, which causes us to miss, most of the time, the learning opportunity behind those moments. Who could we be without those stories? What if things didn’t happen TO us but rather FOR us?
This workshop is a somatic experience based on the journal Nia Black Belt, Lola Manekin has created called Today Is the Day. Through conscious movement and meditation, you will be invited to put your “observer’s hat” on and simply start noticing the way you show up in life for yourself and for others. Lola has spent her entire life dancing within the mystery to create more in her own life, and now she shares the techniques and tools that have worked for her.
You will be challenged to move beyond the limitations of your comfort zone, to listen to and learn from your own body, heart, mind and spirit; after all, we are our greatest teachers, but most times we’re all immune to the callings of our own inner voice.
Be prepared to question all that you think you know, to connect with the breath and body in order to learn different ways of movement, to break out of habitual patterns to both establish new neural pathways and expand the capacity of your nervous system and to learn self-care practices you can use daily.
You will go home with a complete embodied experience of how to practice awareness, and the journal will be your tool to remind you of these practices that will become imprinted in every cell of your body.
Please wear comfortable clothing
