Samples from the Program

More details in June!  We have many wonderful offerings to delight you, presented by our very skilled presenters including:

Embodied Dance

(with various leaders)

Embodied dance is tuning into the internal movement of emotions, sensations and our collective energies.

Discover your own way to move in this delightful form that is both playful and loving.

Dance serves as the perfect metaphor to learn about ourselves as we tune into a partner. What your body learns transfers to other relationships.

Honor your desire for social, sensual, sexual and spiritual connection.

Feel your passion burning within and notice how others will gather to warm themselves at your flame.

All levels welcome, no previous dance experience necessary.


 

Latihan

(with Hema Latha)

Latihan hails from Indonesia and is a powerful meditation in movement exercise.  This is an experience in letting go as you deeply surrender to navigating the unknown.  Many participants leave feeling nurtured, connected and blissed out.


 

Small Connection Pods

With various hosts

This is a time to connect more deeply with a small group and share your process and experiences.

Pods continue throughout.


 

ZEGG Forum

(with various facilitators) 

ZEGG Forum is a group process developed at the German community ZEGG to provide a stage for whatever is happening inside the person: one's true motivations, deep feelings, ideas and emotions. The Forum helps facilitate transparency, sharing and clarifying unsolved situations of daily life, and it can be a catalyst for one's own personal growth.


 

Authentic Relating Games

(with various facilitators) 

Create new and authentic connections by getting to know people in fun and playful ways.  Authentic Relating Games creates a safe atmosphere for people to show up, exactly as they are, and connect from this place.  The games are aimed at keeping what is present in the moment very alive and exploring it together with child like curiosity.  Depending on the group, the games can be light and simple.  They can also get edgy pretty quickly.  You decide where you want the games to take you!  Enjoy the ride!
