The Naked Soul
14 Nov 2018 - 18 Nov 2018
Location: Sevenoaks Retreat Center, 403 Pathwork Way
Charlottesville, Virginia, United States Show map
Organizer: Ann Kite
This is an opportunity for those who want to explore the dynamics of relationship in the luminous mirror of repetition, rhythm and ritual theater. We will cultivate and deepen our ability to see and hear each other as we breakthrough the masks and myths of relationship to face each other with naked souls.
Repetition allows us to throw down our masks, to shatter unspoken contracts that grab us by the throat and diminish us, robbing us of voice and vision. I love this technique; it has changed the way I listen to and see my friends, my lover, my family and even total strangers. Each of us has the power to reach for an embodiment of the spontaneous, instinctive attention to truth that this world so desperately needs. Sharing the tools and techniques that allow us to lovingly take on this commitment is my passion.
So we come together to weave witness and warrior into a vulnerable presence. This is our offering. This is our prayer.
WORKSHOP LEVEL DETAILS
The Mirrors Map leads us to recognize what Gabrielle Roth referred to as “Ego Characters”, how we all have a cast of these endlessly rehashed roles, can learn to spot them, name them, embody them, exaggerate them and practice dis-identifying from them so we might, even when under pressure, move more closely to authenticity, to Soul, to each other, to life and freedom.
PREREQUISITES: Waves, Heartbeat, Cycles and countless class hours of practice.
