What is spirituality and why is it important?
It is a place that vibrates faster than you normally do. By connecting into that field, we can expand ourselves, our ego, our personality. It is important that when connecting the a person maintains contact with their own center and their own personality. In that way a person can get more contact with other people, nature and animals. At the same time, one senses more into the being of here and now, and will experience that this place contains a lot of strength and joy. You are part of this field, so how can you endeavor to be more in touch with it and sense it through the body? Because when you can, you will experience a greater cohesion with everything, the earth, ocean, sky, animals and other people.
What are we going to do?
In this workshop, we are going to train our spirituality through the body with using our body. You will learn how to own your spirituality from the center in your body and how to live your spirituality in everyday life. You will learn this through both theory and exercises.
What will you gain after attending this workshop?
- A better sense of your center and how the center is connected into your spirituality all the time.
- More experience on how to sense your center and emotions. How you can move the energy from the center into the heart and make contact from there.
- When you work with people (as a therapist, social worker, teacher etc), you will be able to stay in contact with your center, and then not lose it by merging with others (“being them“) and that you will be able let your energy be home in your own body and from there mirror them others.
- In this way you will learn how to be in contact without losing the sense of yourself.
- In that way you get less exhausted and can be more satisfied.
- Able to be in deeper contact (e.g. with your partner, children or friends), without losing the sense of your own emotions. At the same time you will be able to sense your own center and personal boundaries, and in that way your own emotions.
- It will activate more compassion for yourself and others.
So let’s make the brain more bodily mindful, as Lisbeth Marcher describes it as state of peace and open mind!
