26-08-17 Biodanza. The Dance of Life
  Facilitator: Nadasree Georgete Gadas

How would it feel to be at ease in your body, trusting its wisdom and feeling free to enjoy yourself as a sensuous, vibrant being? To reconnect with your life force and reawaken to the beauty and pleasure of being alive, able to move and relate?

Biodanza leads us gradually into deeper contact and permission to believe in the goodness of our instinctive passions and to express the emotions that arise from that experience. Using music and movement to create integrative vivencias (the intense lived experience in the moment), this system has a profoundly rebalancing effect on our bodies and psyche. The group becomes the healing matrix where transformation happens, as we open up to each other and allow ourselves to express our feelings and passion more authentically

19-08-17 Summer Retreat Week on Iona
19-08-17 Practical Shamanism. Bridging Ancient Wisdom with Everyday Life
  Facilitator: Astrid Gude

Shamanism has always evolved and adapted to the needs of the time. In this week we will explore shamanism as a way of life in our contemporary world. As a path of direct revelation shamanism is a path of empowerment. We will open up to the guidance of helping spirits in the invisible realm and will experience nature as a powerful ally. Walking this path brings passion and meaning back into life, supports us in releasing limiting beliefs about ourselves and our collective future, helps us tend our inner gardens and open up to a new and better dream for ourselves and all of life

This combines the radical simplicity of this awakened mind which is always present, with the understanding and tool to work with our complex psychology, shadows, attachments and delusions that get in the way of this deeper truth of who we are in everyday life. We choose to let everything in and exclude nothing, knowing that when we do this we truly discover our angst is our liberation

Having worked with both male and female shamans and westerners, he designed this workshop to help people recognise their own energy more clearly, as well to understand Amazonian shamanism and its relationship to mother nature and our future
