"We have a rich cross-cultural legacy of both contemplative and expressive practices at our disposal. How do we draw upon and update them to meet the conditions of the modern mind living in an industrialized body within an urban environment?"

"The natural world is
the larger sacred community to which we belong.To be alienated from this community
is to become destitute in all that makes us human."  - Thomas Berry

Winter Deep Rest
A Somatic Movement and Stillness Journey
Benefiting The Land Institute

December 22, 2024
10-11:15am PT/ 1-2:15pm ET/ 19-20:15 CET

Midway between Solstice and Christmas, we take a pause to rest and digest amidst the busyness of the season.

This online session will gently mix together breath, contact, movement and stillness with large servings of permission to create a sumptuous somatic feast for nourishment and regeneration.

Join us as we give thanks and honor the beautiful nature we are gifted with, both internally and externally, through practice.

By donation – All proceeds go to The Land Institute

The Land Institute is a science-based research organization working to create an agriculture system that mimics natural systems to produce ample food and reduce or eliminate the negative impacts of agriculture.
