Open Heart - A Weaves and Heartbeat Retreat in Ikaria, Greece
4 Sep 2020 - 9 Sep 2020
Ubicación: Ikaria, Greece, Armenistís, Ikaria, Greece
When do you open and close your heart? Can you open your heart to the other when there is fear and anger? Can you open your heart in the midst of conflict and hear the other’s needs and desires?
Every day, we have opportunities to open up shut down. How much can you open and let your feelings flow without over thinking, acting them out or favouring and fantasising about them?
We will use the 5Rhythms to sink deeper into our bodies and hearts on the beautiful, rejuvenating island of Ikaria.
We will spend the first 3 days grounding ourselves in the body and the Waves level. We will use the body parts as gateways into each of the 5Rhythms® (Flowing, Staccato, Chaos, Lyrical, Stillness) and invite awareness of our sensations, temperature, weight and pulsing of our bodies.
This exploration of physical embodiment prepares us for the rest of the retreat where we will explore the emotions of the Heartbeat™ map: Fear that protects, Anger that defends, Sadness that releases, Joy that uplifts and Compassion that unites us.
We will be supported and nurtured by the wild, unspoilt nature of Ikaria. Arrive early and stay longer to enjoy all that the island has to offer and tune in to the relaxed, flowing rhythm of life.
+++ We will be supported and additionally held throughout by Piero with his live drumming and creative use of other instruments to enhance our exploration.
This Workshop is open to all, though we strongly recommend you attend at least one 5Rhythms class before you join us.
+++ The retreat counts towards future 5Rhythms trainings (3 days Waves, 3 days Heartbeat).
+++ INCLUDES: six day workshop, half-board single rooms (lower priced shared room optionally available), locally sourced, organic deliciously tasty and appealing vegetarian food by our befriended favorite local chef Stamatia.
+++ We support local business, all facilities and food will be provided by the local Ikarian community
When: 04 September - 09 September 2020 (5 night, 6-day workshop) with an open drop-in class on the evening of the 3rd.
