'Trust is built in very small moments'
Trust bonds us together. It is the glue of relationship to ourselves, to others and to Life. Our ability to engage with Life is directly related to our level of trust, which stems from our capacity to feel safe, to love and confide in ourselves and others.
Many of us grew up through cultures and systems that did not encourage listening to our instinctive, intuitive wisdom, or trusting the messages coming from our bodies and emotions. This can leave us frazzled at times, without access to our navigation systems or the gateways that lead to our authentic selves.
All of us struggle with trust issues at different stages of life.
During this weekend workshop we will track the small and not-so- small moments that build our trust 'muscles' and increase self -esteem and confidence.
Supported by Open Floor movement and the healing power of dance as meditation we will explore our innate and emotional intelligence systems as we connect to the life force moving through us and ask
What do we trust? Who can we rely upon?
How do we strengthen connection on every level?
What would our lives look like if we trusted ourselves more?
As trust is key to clear communication, some voice and sound work led by Kate Lawrence will be offered during the weekend to strengthen the heart and throat centres.
St. Kevins Hall, Portobello, Dublin 8.
€150 / €130 (early bird by August 30th)
€20 for Friday evening session (this is included in full weekend price)

An Open Floor Movement series for women

“The doors to the world of the wild Self are few but precious. If you have a deep scar, that is a door, if you have an old, old story, that is a door. If you love the sky and the water so much you almost cannot bear it, that is a door. If you yearn for a deeper life, a full life, a sane life, that is a door.”
Beginning at Samhain time and carrying us through winter, this movement series for women is an invitation to gather, move, rest and sit in circle together as we travel deep into the landscape of the female human being. Calling on the energies of curiosity and compassion, and held by the healing power of dance as meditation we will explore pathways to realign with the womb centre as a true seat of power, compassion and connection to Source.
For thousands of years much of the wisdom of the womb centre has been lost, hidden and repressed. Many of us have moved out of right relationship with our bodies, with Life, with the earth we live upon, and are challenged to come home to a felt sense of safety and belonging within ourselves and in our world.
During each of these workshops we will ask questions, knock on doorways, follow the mystery of our moving bodies, listen to impulses and risk breathing deeply to embody and express what we innately know. Supported by Open Floor movement resources and the teachings of the chakra system, we will explore balance of inner & outer, feminine & masculine, light & darkness as we connect to the life force moving through us and call ourselves home.
All women are welcome, whatever your experience, age, stage of cycles or situation.
These workshops can be taken individually or as a full series, you are welcome to attend one, two or all of them.
€100 for one workshop (€90 early bird if paid in full 3 weeks before workshop begins)
€85 each for two workshops (payment plan available)
€75 each for all three workshops (payment plan available)
