Healing In Nature - Mindfulness and Somatic Meditations to Heal Trauma
In these times we can face many times of challenges- discomfort, difficulty, feelings of unpleasantness- which are all part of dealing with the changing-ness of these times. And amidst this, you may be finding it more difficult to manage as unresolved or past wounds are rising to the surface and need your attention in a new way. This retreat is an opportunity to practice mindfulness and somatic meditations in nature to support you healing the traumas/wounds/intensities you may be facing at this time.
Nature offers beautiful support to the practice of mindfulness to cultivate a deeper sense of awakening in our body, mind, and heart. In this retreat, we will practice mindfulness nature meditations and somatic experiencing practices to help you heal trauma and difficulties you are struggling with. You will learn ways to integrate these practices into your everyday life that will support your healing journey. We will be with the beauty and healing grace of the waters of the river and ocean and meet at Hospitality Point Park to support the healing of the body, mind, and heart in this way.
NOTE: We will be meeting at the Hospitality Point Park Gazebo (***If conditions from local guidelines during COVID- permit***) AND we will be live-streaming through Zoom and Facebook.
