Your body longs to speak to you.
Reconnect with your body through this thorough, accessible, and rejuvenating half-day workshop.
Join embodied spirituality expert Rachel A. Parsons, MA, in an illuminating and vitalizing exploration of the body through interspiritual meditation, movement, and reflection. Rachel will lead you in a series of opportunities to connect your head and heart, your soul and body, your body and the divine.
The event will include multiple guided meditations to fully engage and inhabit every part of your body. You will learn how to listen to, honor, and respond to your body's wisdom and to explore bodily connection with the divine. The workshop will also include an extended period for ecstatic movement/dance and "free time" to spend at embodiment stations set up around the room. Ecstatic dance is a nonverbal exploration of the body and its honest, root inclinations through unfiltered, unmitigated movement to music. You are invited to listen carefully, uncritically, and safely to the impulses of the body and to follow through without inhibition. You will be encouraged to pursue any movement impulses as they arise, but if your body truly is disinterested in movement, the stations will offer alternative methods for engagement.
Movement is a receptive, harmonizing, and responsive act. In movement we interact with the musical, human, and spacial blessings around us, join these blessings on their own terms, listen to our bodies, and contribute new creation in return. Come marvel at the work of nature that is your very self. Ecstatic movement FAQ's: fratresdei.com/faq-s.
