The moment one
gives close attention
even a blade of grass it becomes
a mysterious, awesome,
~ Henry Miller
BODY OF WONDER combines 30 + years of traveling the world, being with the creative genius of nature, water, wave forms, movement, stillness and contemplative experiences, combined with studies in the healing arts, movement and wellness field. When we pause for a moment and tune into the gift of life all around and within us – we get an inkling of the vastness to explore. There may be a sense of wonder, perhaps awe for the sublime that is creation.
The meaning of the body is beyond a literal understanding of ourselves as anatomical structures. The nervous system is only one way to recognize the experience of being alive. Body can be conceived as an emergent interrelational process of experience. This encompasses individual and collective engagement with the full expression of life, a deepening into a broader sense of being.
We are the infinite expressing in ongoing flowing artistry.
As fluid beings we are an embodiment of dynamic stillness and flow, of indivisible Wholeness. Our bodies just like the Earth are primarily made of water. It could be said we are one body with the earth. Life on earth itself emerged from water originally. We were created and formed within the amniotic waters of the womb. From being surrounded in water, to being primarily water inside ourselves – we have a direct biological organismic experience of fluidity through our own waters and that of the earths. We can access direct knowing of our bodies as primarily fluid – water and therefore wave potential, which is flow.
BODY OF WONDER explores our existence through various awareness approaches and embodiment practices such as Flow Awareness™, Continuum and Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy that support knowing our inherent Unity and developing a further sense of creativity, connection, wellness and growth – the flow of wholeness.
“If a child is to keep alive his inborn sense of wonder, he needs the companionship of at least one adult who can share it, rediscovering with him the joy, excitement, and mystery of the world we live in…If I had influence with the good fairy who is supposed to preside over the christening of all children, I should ask that her gift to each child in the world be a sense of wonder so indestructible that it would last throughout life.” ~ Rachel Carson
BODY OF WONDER fosters a natural curiosity to emerge, by exploring new possibilities and reclaiming the knowing of ourselves as an evolutionary impulse ~ as the flow of life which is Creations Ocean.
Personal Sessions and workshops in Naio™, Continuum and Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy engage in a fluid discovery of our being. They support the journey into ourselves by developing and refining Bioception* including perceptual capacities – proprioception, interoception, neuroception, the various and diverse sensing, perceiving and relating abilities that support creativity, freedom, peace and a deeper sense of belonging.
We move beyond patterning, habits and limitations just like the water we are and discover new ways of expressing our life’s meaning.
Please visit Retreats & Workshops pages for different classes, workshops and retreats.
Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapist Training and related seminars can be seen under Craniosacral Training.
A Practitioner Training in Flow Awareness will be announced soon for 2022.
“Water is life, it is nourishment, it is whole, integrated and resonant.
It is in the plants and trees, the rivers, the oceans,
the air we breathe and throughout space.
Water is everywhere.
It is a mysterious bridge between formless and form,
stillness and movement,
the intangible and tangible and best of all it is inside
All Of US – It is US.”
