Mindful Movement Collective CPD

7:00pm 24 March 2017 - 3:30pm 26 March 2017

Cost: ÂŁ140.00

Venue: Samye Ling

Mindful movement seems to be a bit like Marmite – you either love it or you hate it! Whether you love it and always feel that its importance is underestimated within mindfulness trainings, or whether you hate it and cringe with awkwardness at the necessity of teaching it – this weekend is for you.

This course will be led by Fay Adams and as well as other 'Mindfulness Association Tutors'.

This will be a weekend to launch a new engagement with mindful movement. We will enjoy contributions from a variety of Mindfulness teachers with experience or interest in diverse kinds of mindful movement, influenced by martial arts and chi gong, yoga, dance and theatre. Each will contribute a sequence or approach that we can practice ourselves as teachers and then pass on to others. The contributions will be videoed so that you can practice them at home after the weekend until you’re ready to teach them yourself.

We hope that this weekend will kindle an enthusiasm in the possibilities that mindful movement has to offer – anchoring into presence, spontaneity and rhythm, energising and revitalising body sensations, encountering self-limiting patterning, reconnection with our instinct and a sense of flow, expressing feeling in a natural way, tender connection with our body, truly feeling the ground and the peace that this can bring, ease and appreciation of our freedom to move, gentleness towards our body’s limitations and any illness and working with rather than against.

In this weekend we will encounter the simple joy of moving mindfully, while also connecting with other practitioners and teachers on the same journey.

The weekend begins at 7pm (evening meal at 6pm) on the Friday evening, between 8am and 8pm on Saturday and between 8am and 3.30pm on a Sunday. It is expected that course participants will stay until the end of the training (3.30pm) on the Sunday.

The course fee is ÂŁ140, including manual.
