Opening to Life retreat Bali-
Welcome to opening to life...I am writing some explanation around the theme we are taking for the week, to encourage you to join us!
We (Sonja and I) have devised this retreat to offer a week of getting closer to yourself, with the support of yoga and group work, our aim being to open and support the flow of emotion, energy and life force through each of us, so we can be our best selves in the world we return to.
Mostly, life is a fairly tumultuous journey, nearly all of us will go through good times and difficult times, managing in whatever way we can. When we face challenging life events there can be a tendency to isolate and shut down, protecting ourselves from shame and vulnerability. This is a natural and often much needed withdrawal which can allow time for regenerating and strengthening, before returning to the world. However, in our withdrawal we can also become stuck, leaving us shut down and less able to engage with the world. There are many reasons why and how this may happen, but the end result is a feeling of stuck places in our lives which prevent us from growth.
Opening to Life is a gentle process you will be invited into through bodywork and group work, to explore and revitalise these stuck places. When this energy starts to flow again you will feel invigorated and alive, more resourceful in your world and better able to form meaningful relationships.
We will join you on this journey, in our own opening to life, an ongoing process we are refining and working with constantly.... Warmly,
