4-days Deep Ecology & Yoga, Golden Bay
Time & Location
About The Event
ACTIVE HOPE: Join us for an extraordinary, heart-felt journey into enhanced connection and empowerment through Deep Ecology & Yoga
During this 4-day/3-night residential retreat we will be touching our innermost responses to the condition of our world and reconnecting with our sense of wonder for the web of life. Strengthened by generations past and encouraged by those yet to come, we can tap our own deep awareness and creativity to chart a course for taking action in a way that brings us alive.
Inna will guide us through experiential practices, poetry, ritual, song, movement and silence to guide our journey through the four stages of the spiral of the Work That Reconnects. These four stages support one another and help us experience first hand that we are larger, stronger, deeper, and more creative than we have been brought up to believe.
We will support our journey with yogic practices lead by Noa Parker. Guided practices include Asana, Pranayama, Yoga Nidra, and Meditation.
Drawing on the work of Joanna Macy, John Seed and Arne Naess this workshop will empower you to act on behalf of Earth with clarity, love and direction.
No previous experience in Yoga or Deep Ecology necessary.
“FACILITATOR HUI” ADD-ON OPTION
2 sessions: Friday 23 October, 9-11.30am, plus Monday 26 October, 1-4.30pm
This add-on option is available for retreat participants wishing to step into facilitating The Work That Reconnects or those already facilitating who wish to join a community of facilitators for experiential sharing.
Two co-creative sessions (one pre- and one post-workshop) support your own transformational Deep Ecology journey as well as to gain confidence assisting others on the path to coming back to life.
The first session will offer theory about the four successive stages of the work, group facilitation basics, and pointers for observing and learning from workshop facilitation during the weekend. Following the workshop completion, we will have an extensive de-brief, involving both practical aspects of facilitation and workshop layout as well as reflections on our personal journeys.
