SOMATIC AWARENESS IMMERSION
A WellBody Arts Retreat with Kristine Karpinski

July 11th-16th, 2017 at Spirit Fire Retreat Centre       
Leyden Massachusetts - Registration Info Here

Come as you are  -  Be with what is  -  Get curious.
Notice - Move - Ponder - Reflect - Discover - Track

Combining awareness-based experiences, 
somatic movement practices and expressive art activities, 
immerse deeply in yourself and the inner wisdom 
of your bio-intelligent body. 

Our intention is to get curious about our patterns of being that inform our body’s experience of living.  The expression of being human is a constant process, and touches on mundane, mental, energetic, emotional, cultural, physical, primordial, spiritual and cosmological influences.

This immersion will give us an opportunity to explore how stillness and movement feels in our bodies with the support of music, silence, sound, guidance from outside and from within - consciously, thoughtfully, joyfully, contemplating awareness and noticing what informs us.  We’ll track our experiences through an individual art project, that will transform into a take-away reminder of our process.  It’s likely we’ll laugh, meditate, sing, dance, walk in nature, converse consciously, deeply relax and settle in to the core of who we are.  The only prerequisite is being a curious human being.  The hope is, you leave inspired for whatever next steps your journey brings.  



Our bodies are at once receiving and transmitting stations for life itself.  It is the highest wisdom to recognize this fact and train our bodies to render them sensitive and responsive to nature, art and (spirit). … We have the capacity to receive messages from the stars and the songs of the night winds          -Ruth St. Denis
