Body Wisdom - Going Further
The doors to the world of the wild Self are few but precious. If you have a deep scar, that is a door, if you have an old, old story, that is a door. If you love the sky and the water so much you almost cannot bear it, that is a door. If you yearn for a deeper life, a full life, a sane life, that is a door. - Clarissa Pincola Estes
Felt explorations are explorations into themes that matter to us, whether we hold curiosity around our body symptoms, relational dynamics, whether we are intrigued by the wisdom of our dreams and callings or are ready to lean into unknown together. Those workshops are dedicated to our personal explorations where your skills of focusing, supported by the facilitator, can open the doors and offer new insights.
