This workshop is a powerful hands-on interactive exploration of the body, your body and the vast universe of emotions within each and every person. Feelings buried alive never die. When feelings aren't felt and honored they get stuck in the body. This stuck-ness can turn into aches and pains and then if not dealt with can manifest into serious illnesses. All information will be presented in an easy and digestible fashion with humor and spontaneous relevance. Anyone is welcome to attend. No prior experience is needed in any field, all you need is to have a body.
*Dynamic lecture and group exploration of The Chinese Five Element Theory, and how it bridges the physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual dimensions of being human.
*Interactive and hands on exercises to deepen and broaden ones bodily self knowledge and wisdom.
*Meridian---Muscle---Emotion connections and spiritual qualities embedded within these connections.
*Self Care Techniques: Stretching, Qi Gong and Self Massage (both self massage and partner massage).
*Meeting the Shadow: An introspective investigation and inquiry into the parts of us that got left behind. Presented with techniques and awarenesses that can turn this unintegrated saboteur into a very powerful ally.
*Transformational Bodywork Demonstrations: Mark will be taking volunteers to show the profound bodywork he does and has learned from his teacher Dr. Fred Mitouer. There will be about 3 or 4 demos of this powerful work to assist the participants in seeing what actually is trapped in the tissues as well as what is lurking underneath the floor boards of ones daily consciousness. This will be the most dynamic part of the workshop and not to be missed.
*All of the material presented can be easily woven into a daily yogic/spiritual practices. The main pillar of intention at the core of this workshop is to peal away that which is not true; emotionally, psychologically, spiritually and physically. This workshop is an amazing addition to any yoga retreat or teacher training.
