Rest Your Thinking Mind, Learn How to Use Your Body Mind
A half-day experiential workshop in the woods
Sunday, May 14th 2017 - Stanmer Park, E Sussex
Come and explore the limits of your senses and try out some animal powers of perception that you probably didn’t realise you have.
On this hands-on experiential workshop, which is being held in woods in Stanmer Park near Brighton, you’ll learn a range of exercises and techniques to explore your senses in a slow state of high awareness.
This outdoor class will include:
• Relaxed centering and grounding exercises to still body and mind
• Playing with your awareness skills, using blindfolds and other techniques
• Expanding your felt-sense using other ways of seeing
• Time for reflection and sharing on what you have discovered about yourself, and the world around you
• Guidance on how to apply what you've discovered in everyday life
See how much you can detect, learn, and sense about nature and yourself, without thinking, and without words.

You use them every day to gather information about the world around you. Your senses that is.
There's sight, smell, touch, taste, hearing... and your body is chock full of 'extra' senses that you may not even be aware you're using.
Humans have amazing powers of consciousness, reason, and creativity.
You also have some of the mysterious powers that other animals possess.
In our busy lives it's easy to ignore what our body wisdom is telling us, but how much more would we discover about ourselves and what's going on around us, if we paid as much attention to what we feel in our bodies, and in our hearts and our guts, as we do to what we see and what we think.
We don’t often get the chance to explore our ‘felt-sense’ of the world, and what we can become aware of through using it.
So as nature stirs this Spring, this is a workshop where you can explore and develop more of your inner and outer senses.
This is a chance to explore and develop your awareness in the softer natural world, and become both 'more you', and more in connection with nature.
The morning will be fun, surprising and you will be encouraged to be curious about discovering more about what you're capable of.
The day runs from 10am to 1.30pm.
The cost is £25.
(Numbers are limited to 15 participants max.)
The venue is Stanmer Park, near Brighton.
