Have you experienced loss and the natural emotions of sadness, anger, fear and love? How do you process your losses and move through your life? Unfortunately, many of us have not found safe and effective ways of expressing these emotions, and we can feel stuck, both emotionally and at times physically, with the cumulative burden of our unfinished business. Using the tools of the 5Rhythms® movement practice combined with a process of grief-work that is grounded in emotional presence, non-judgment and supportive witnessing, together we will join in a safe space to help heal mind, body and spirit.
Lucia will facilitate the 5Rhythms® as a method to experientially access a wide spectrum of feelings. Peter, a physician with more than 30 years of experience in HIV/AIDS and palliative care, will facilitate story-sharing as part of releasing and working through losses. Other elements of the workshop include both didactic and experiential content, focusing on natural and distorted emotional responses to grief, caregiving versus caretaking and other topics.
Please bring photos or other mementos of anyone whose memory you would like to bring into the workshop.

NIVEAU WORKSHOP DETAILS
In Heartbeat we explore our emotions as energy, as power, as part of being human. Old feelings that have been locked in our limbs or caged in our chest begin to shake loose. We get comfortable with feelings, neither hanging onto them nor pushing them away.
