The Body-Heart Wisdom
April 2nd, 2023
in São Paulo
Do you spend most of your time dealing with stress? Do you ever reset your organism from the amount of stress you handle on a daily basis? I am not talking about drinking our stress away. I am talking about clearing the stress energy from our system like we are suppose to. Know how reconnecting with your body-heart wisdom can help you do that.
Because we have not learned to give credit to our nature and the wisdom of our body-heart, the stressful situations we encounter on a day keep piling up and being shoved down. The way most of us have learned to decompress can be quite unhealthy in the long run: we distract ourselves from our feelings.
No matter how much we hide from our feelings and distract ourselves, the stressful and traumatic events are taken in by the body. As Bessel van der Kolk titled his book, “the body keeps the score” and this soft animal needs us to care for it every once in a while. The good news is that we have the capacity in our body to clear the stress out and listen again to the gentle voice of our heart.
What the experience includes
This Reconnection Experience will take a whole afternoon (from 2 pm to 5 pm) and invite you to immerse yourself in the nature of your body. The purpose of this experience is to bring awareness to the energies that are trapped in the body in order to release them and get in touch with the inner wisdom of the heart.
To do this, we will start with a light yoga asana practice, followed by a complete session of Somatic Breathwork – an energy cleansing technique through breathing – and we will end with a reflection activity and group sharing.
Bring material for taking notes and a water bottle!
The principles of this experience
To reconnect with the wisdom of your body-heart we will go through a transformative learning journey structured by 3 principles:
- The body has an intelligence that needs to be honored
- Stress energy is released and cleared out through somatic expression
- The system’s reset gives access to the wisdom of the heart
