Deeping our Connection with Self and Nature as we Attune with the Season at Imbolc.
Facilitator: Gillian Galbraith.
Venue: Edinburgh Academy, 42 Henderson Row, Edinburgh, EH3 5BL.
Dates: Saturday 4 - Sunday 5 February 2017.
Time: Registration: 9.30am-10am. Retreat: 10am-5pm.
Event Description: Imbolc marks the peak of winter and the very beginnings of Spring. The first bulbs are emerging from the earth, the light is slowly returning and the suns power is beginning to expand once again. As the earth begins to awaken from its winter slumber, it is the time of year to prepare the ground for new beginnings.
Using nature as our inspiration, and the creative movement practice of Open Floor as our container, we will dance to awaken our awareness to the emerging energy of spring. Like the seeds and bulbs incubating over the winter months deep inside the protective core of the earth, we too hold the essence of new dreams and new possibilities deep inside the bones of our physical being.
We will explore the 4 dimensions of embodiment (physical, mindful, emotional and soulful) as we follow the patterns and impulses that arise from the core of our dancing being, guiding us towards fully embodied connection with new beginnings of all shapes and forms.
