“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 womb situation.
These workshops can be taken individually or as a full series, you are welcome to attend one, two or all of them and in any order. While the overarching theme of womb presence moves through all three workshops, we will be exploring different themes in alignment with the cycle of the seasons during each workshop.
€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)

Landing in Stillness
Open Floor day workshop in Wexford
Sunday November 26th 2017 11am - 5pm
As we enter into the season of Winter this day of movement, enquiry and dance meditation is designed to encourage us to move to be still. Supported by the mindful movement practices of Open Floor and the alchemical power of dance as meditation, we will explore how to be with what is, to offer it into motion, to let it grow and settle and grow again, to follow our unique and natural rhythms with an attitude of curiosity and compassion for what arises.
At this time of year, now more than ever we need practices that offer pathways to presence, teach us to relax with emptiness, to rest within the breath and the life force moving through us in the moment, be it is wild and chaotic, awakening or settling, hesitant or passionate, clumsy or graceful. There is room for you and for all of it on the floor.
Venue: Murphys Barn, Cleariestown, Co. Wexford ( a beautiful venue )
€65 / €55 (if booked by Nov 16th)
To book please email Caitriona on : firstname.lastname@example.org
