The Align workshop series is a combination of conversation & practicum, in which a small yet diverse group of students are given the opportunity to develop their own practices that are in alignment with the season of life they are in, and to engage in intimate and expansive conversations with one another about how they each uniquely resonate with those seasons. This particular workshop focuses on the season of Winter, both as a season of the earth that influences us and our wellbeing, and also as a reflection of a season of rest & reflection one might be experiencing in their personal life.
Winter is a season of rest and reflection. Winter’s medicine is the time and space we have to put to rest anything that we are still holding onto from the past cycle, not necessarily forever, but for the time being. Winter invites us to be in incubation. Just like when we go to bed at night, when we rest, we do not cease to be, but we are able to enter into a deeper state of consciousness, without the distractions of the waking world. When we rest, we can explore the realm of dreams, which are the beginnings of our intentions for the next growing season. There is no pressure to implement our dreams and ideas during this season; this is a time to dream big and not be concerned with the outcome. As well as dreaming and visioning for the future, we can be in reflection on the seasons past, in which we honor what was in alignment with our highest good, and what was not. This also will carry us into the next growing season more aligned with our highest good. This workshop focuses on practices that keep the soul warm as the body resets.
This workshop is limited to 7 students to maintain a comfortable container for students to engage in conversation with one another, and their own practices within this season. Sign up promptly to reserve your spot!
