About the Program

LEAN INTO YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH THE LIVING EARTH

Ecosomatic Retreats are half-day Earth Bonding  experiences where you will be immersed in the healing energy of the natural world. They are designed to bring you into embodied presence, sensory pleasure, and joyful aliveness. Each retreat aims to counter the embodied narratives of mainstream culture which reproduce stress patterns that dis-regulate the individual and collective nervous system and further separate us from our natural wisdom and empowerment. For this reason, Ecosomatic Retreats offer a creative response to the challenges we face in these times.

Our retreats are intentionally crafted to create felt-sense experiences that reorient the internal working model towards deepening trust, safety, regulation and body attunement. Earth Bonding  is a term to describe the embodied exploration of self in relationship to earth. It is a process of creating meaningful, intimate and healing encounters between you and the more-than-human-world.  These experiences foster  eco-regulation, which is an interactive process of regulatory support that occurs within the context of nature and can lead to the formation of a secure attachment with the tangible personhood of place.

The teachings, medicine and healing powers of nature are abundant, especially when we are able to engage with earth in mindful and reverent ways. As an extension of nature, your system is designed to be in alignment with the oscillating rhythms of flow, rest, rising, falling, growth, activity, and so on.

Through facilitated Earth Bonding experiences you will:

  • Make contact with the seasonal energy  through a facilitated somatic experience that mirrors nature's rhythms, movements, tones, breath patterns, and ways of relating.
  • Be given the opportunity to explore your relationship to the living landscape while deepening your relationship to your own body as an extension of earth.
  • Practice attuning to your sensational body while leaning on nature as a nurturing presence.

When you spend time in nature, you awaken your senses, noticing the sights, smells and sounds of nature.

Within 5 min of being in nature your body and brain start to change...

  • Your heart rate slows
  • Your facial muscles start to relax
  • Your hardworking frontal lobes begin to quiet down.

Benefits include increased feelings of aliveness, connection & relaxedness as well as a boost to your productivity and creativity later on.

RESEARCH REVEALS THAT...

  • The smell of pine trees strengthens your immune system.
  • When you hear birdsong or look at fractal patterns in nature your brain puts out more alpha waves making you feel both calm and alert.
  • If you spend an hour and a half walking around plants and animals you will be less preoccupied with your own personal problems and feel more connected to people and the world around you.

MORE ABOUT THE SPRING ECOSOMATIC RETREAT

Theme: Sensual Arousal

The body of Spring is fragrant and fresh with intoxicating sweetness, sensual energy, excitement, inspiration, possibility and growth. Our half-day retreat arrives on the eve of May Day and will be an ecstatic experience of sensing the orgasmic expression of earth’s spring body. We open, invite, and stimulate the flesh of our bodies by touching and being touched by life. We have orchestrated a rhythmic experience that will arouse your senses, open new neural pathways, and bathe your body in the permeating vibrations of the season.

INCLUDES:

  • 4 hours of facilitated somatic embodiment exploration
  • Techniques and approaches to engage and deepen intimacy with self and earth
  • Exercises that foster regulation, aliveness, and bodyful presence
  • Embodiment practices that stimulate new felt-experiences

“Our body is the medium of sensation and experience on earth, grounding us into self-knowledge and tactile relationship with all of life and landscape.” - Victoria Maria

THIS IS FOR YOU IF:

  • You are among the many who feel the weight of these times and have felt a very real impact on the wellbeing of your bodymind and soul.
  • You are deeply attuned to the source of our collective suffering: the dissociation from our bodies and the greater body of earth.
  • You are feeling stressed or overwhelmed and want to give yourself time to drop into full body presence and joy.
  • You are experiencing "zoom fatigue" and know that being outside and activating your senses is exactly what your bodymind needs to replenish.
  • You are feeling the need to change things up and know that trying something new is exactly what you need
  • You are feeling stuck in the stagnancy of your daily routine and know that learning new embodiment practices will help get you out of the rut.
  • You are feeling isolated and lonely and know that an afternoon of meaningful connection will provide you with the soul nourishment you long for.
  • You are feeling tired and unmotivated and know that playful exploration with others will revitalize your spirit.
  • You are feeling dull and uninspired and know that immersing yourself in nature's active beauty will  bring you a sense of wonder and joy.
  • You are noticing that a lot of your time is spent behind screens and you know that spending an afternoon unplugged is a good way to reset.
