MINDFULNESS ASSOCIATION CONFERENCE JUNE 2017
MASTER CLASS – WITH ANNA ZUBRZYCKI & ANGIE BALL
COMPASSIONATE TOUCH & MOVEMENT
Our winding journey into the awakening of the Compassionate heart is often challenging, difficult, yet surprisingly rich, deep and tender. As we step fully into opening our hearts to ourselves and others, we realise that we are all Human Beings together in the messiness of life.
Join Anna and Angie in this Master Class on a short journey of discovery to deepen our experience together, both in practice and movement. Through exploring our innate ability to bring reassurance, kindness and tenderness towards ourselves through touch and later meeting our edge by extending this towards others.
The session will give time to both sit and deepen our self compassion practice while extending this through movement, exploring the boundaries where self and other may merge and part. In each moment we may allow and notice the ‘mud’ of our neurotic mind states, moods, and emotional experiences to ebb and flow. We may open to our vulnerability, our wounds our hurts, our shame, while appreciating and rejoicing in our everyday life, our joy and happiness, holding all of this in our tender heart space.
