?New Year’s Day Metamorphosis Workshop?
New Year’s Day gives us an opportunity to stop and reflect, taking stock of what has been, acknowledging what is and planting seeds for what will come. It’s a symbolic day to consider what metamorphoses we have already been through and how we might direct our energies to keep transforming in a direction that feels meaningful to us, whilst fully cherishing where we are at now. It’s a day for excitement at what lies ahead!
This 3.5 hour workshop will open with a heart-based mantra to infuse the space with compassion, facilitating us to feel held as we explore our values-based intentions for the year ahead. Following this we will journey through a nourishing flow creating all the heat and activation we need to nurture the seeds we have planted, inviting the process of metamorphosis to unfold. We will weave our values and intentions through the movement practice, with options to challenge ourselves by both pushing into and backing off from our edges.
We will wind down with some restorative yoga supported by props, giving space for the benefits of our practice to percolate through our system. As we snuggle into our final resting pose you will be guided through a meditation. Therapeutic sound bowls will be played both on the body and around the room for an immersive healing experience.
We will bring the practise to a close with a mantra for new beginnings and a closing circle. Vegan snacks and hot tea will guide you from the workshop out into 2019!
I will be leaning heavily on my experience as a clinical psychologist specialising in adult mental health and trauma whilst delivering this workshop, using ideas from acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), and compassion-focused therapy (CFT).
