Saturday Somatics

via remote video call on Zoom

The focus of Saturday Somatics virtually is to offer the opportunity to continue our practice together if of interest to you. 

 

We will be exploring how we can deepen our inner sensory awareness and recover greater ease and presence in the experiencing moment. 

Further information about Saturday Somatics via zoom

In each workshop we take time to be quiet and comfortable through guided movement activities at a slow and gentle pace. We may explore movement in different activities including in lying, sitting, standing, walking, breathing or sounding as well as exploring gentle guided hands-on-touch on ourselves.

 

Each session open’s with a brief check in followed by the gentle guided movement activities and closes with time for transition, rest and a brief reflection at the end. 

 

Throughout the session Rosalyn will accompany you through each activity embodying and practicing alongside your own explorations. You are your own authority in this approach and your inner felt sense of ease will guide the session.

 

Saturday Somatics is based on the somatics practices of Elsa Gindler’s Human Work and Body-Mind Centering®. 

 

The workshops are open to a maximum of 12 participants as in real time and only advertised through our usual local platforms and mailing list. 

 

Booking is essential to receive the link to join the remote video call.

 

If you have not participated in SOEL Saturday Somatics before please contact Rosalyn directly.

 

This somatics approach has been described as meditation for the western mind; as a ‘radically’ simple way of working with experience. In brief we might describe this approach as learning or recovering simply how to pay attention to how we go with greater ease: how we sit with greater ease, hold a cup, breathe, stand, lie down, how we truly rest with greater ease... 

 

There are no prerequisites for this work, just patience and a love of exploring.

…the most essential things we have to keep in mind are: any correction made from without is of little value, and that each of us must try to gain understanding for the special nature of our own constitution in order to learn how to take care of ourselves.

SATURDAY SOMATICS

Breath & Mindfulness

BY REMOTE VIDEO CALL: zoom

25th July 2020

11am-1pm

FEE by donation

 

Just like our heartbeat we can allow our breathing to be as it wants to be, feeling our breath and being sensitively open for what is happening.

A morning workshop recovering ease, vitality and presence through  breathing, bringing into consciousness this spontaneous activity that is going on inside us all the time.

Through gentle movement activities, rest and simple hands-on touch we will explore deepening our felt sensory awareness of our breath.
