The courage to be yourself – Meditation workshop with Emilio Mercuriali
It takes courage to be ourselves. What does it mean to be truly yourself, free, open and without any limits? Maybe you remember a time when you were a child and felt like this. Our personality structure is constantly keeping us tuned down so that we can conform and fit in, be accepted and loved. This is natural, because we all want to be loved and to feel like we belong. However, sometimes when we do manage to get loved, it is for our actions or achievements, and not simply being who we are.
Eventually we might get frustrated and angry with others. We feel betrayed and ultimately it is us who betray ourselves. In our anger and frustration lives the energy we need to dig up and let go, so that we can free up who we really are and live our fullest lives.
In this workshop we will explore this topic both in conversation and in meditation, giving you some tools and insight that can help you reconnect to your true nature.
Grounding Vinyasa Yoga with Silvia Eriksson
In this yoga flow we will focus on the lower body and the nourishing earthy energy of grounding. As the winter is settling in, cultivating warmth and comfort in our body is essential. Like the seasons, the practice forms an arc, starting slowly with warm-up movements to bring space into your spine, core, and major joints, building into an energetic standing-posture sequence. This will be followed by seated postures, grounding you again and preparing you to sit in stillness.
The practice is all about balance and opposing energies. As we change seasons, it takes effort to let go of old patterns, to spark new inspirations, and begin a new chapter. A balance of effort and strength, as well as subtle surrender, can help to enter this new phase with confidence and ease.
