Wonder, Play & Prayer

August 18, 19 & 20, 2023

Children instinctively love nature and develop wise respect and a fearless relationship with the playground of a wondrous world when allowed.  Experiencing the world as alive, interconnected and sacred,  home is underfoot in the nearest tree, the wind, the smell of fresh rain,  the sound of thunder and sunshine. An innate knowing of ‘place’ and belonging evokes the prayer of curiosity, humility and respect for creation.

Wonder reawakens the direct experience of belonging to something larger than oneself. A space where we can feel loved, nourished and guided by the great forces of creation. A resting place to tend to the inner yearnings of our hearts within an interconnected reality.

This playshop invites you to soften into the elemental powers of Earth, Air, Sun/Fire, Water and Ether as the very source of your being, vitality and health. Relaxing into the transformational powers of this living world calls us home.  

Where do we find answers in a world where familiar social and physical structures quickly change, and the way ahead is unknown? Within the nourishment of wonder, play and prayer, we are delivered into the creational field, where fresh new possibilities, insights, and awareness awaits.

Processes Include: 

Dance, Movement Meditations, Felt Awareness and Chakra Breath processes,  Voice-play and Earth-centred Ceremony are woven throughout the weekend.

Integrated into all processes is the opportunity to re-vision the fundamental questions of ‘Who am I’ and What Now?
