Mindful Movement/ Talking Story (Big Island)

August 10-18, 2019, Annual Weeklong Retreat


  Our week together at the paradisical Whale Spirit Sanctuary is dedicated to exploring the confluence of movement, words, and embodied witnessing —listening to the stories that the body carries and the movement that longs to be expressed. Mornings we move together to compelling music, afternoons we explore group dynamics in the thrilling nature of coastal Hawaii, and evenings we explore individual psyche, the effect of loving group attention on the impulses toward communion and healing.
