Moving into Ritual: the role of embodiment in daily practice with Jessica Houghton
In this workshop we will explore the importance of the body and movement in our daily practices, viewing the body as an extension of the elements and the divine. Jessica will facilitate group creative movement explorations to support participants in developing their own unique movement ritual to use at the start of their daily practice or spell work. Beginning with movement ritual gives us access to our embodied wisdom, intuition, and experience of the divine within us, creating a pathway into magic that is grounded and expansive and enriching our work with a deep connection to the earth.
