This workshop is a somatic exploration of your own life patterns. You will get to see your own world view and reactions more clearly, and thus be more at choice about how you life.
For example, when confronted with a challenge, do you or do you not: Stand up for yourself Be vulnerably present Show up in your life Interact with exuberance Inhabit your own nature Connect tenderly with others Express yourself powerfully Take risks Live passionately
There are countless reasons why we might shut down our own brilliance. On the one hand, society discourages us from growling with animal passion, asserting ourselves vigorously, or fiercely insisting on our boundaries or our preferences. On the other hand, we seldom have the opportunity to tenderly hold other people with nourishing human contact, or to be held by others in our vulnerability and to be cherished despite our feelings of brokeness.
We all have these feelings of ferocity and tenderness. We must feel safe in order to be vulnerably intimate, and a part of that safety is being confident in our own ability to say "no" and take a stand for our boundaries. In this workshop you will get to actually inhabit these and many other human energies. Push people around, bump into others, get rowdy, get gentle, get sweet. There's room for all of you here.
Let Coach Basin push you a bit into pushing others a bit. Stretch into unfamiliar parts of yourself. Learn what it feels like to be bigger than usual, so that you can call on those parts of yourself when you need them.
No previous experience is necessary for this workshop.
