Words have meaning. They have an origin and a history. It is important we choose our words wisely. We should research them to better understand and imbue them with more meaning. Your vocabulary is yours and yours alone. Perhaps you have adopted some words and phrases that don’t quite fit you or the person you want to be. Perhaps you inherited them from your upbringing; they've been passed down from generation to generation and are therefore familiar to you, but not generative, expansive, or transformative. Identify the words and phrases you use that don’t actually below to you and remove them from your vocabulary. You can do this by sitting with a familiar phrase and noticing how it makes you feel. If it feels heavy, weighted, or stifling, then transform it. You create what you speak, so we have a big responsibility to become conscious of what statements we are making out in the world.
We will start the workshop with gentle meditation and reiki healing. After the reiki healing, we will then begin a writing activity where we will think about and write phrases down that we use on a regular basis. All attendees will be provided with a sheet to write on and get all the phrases out without judgment. We will then work to transform the ones that feel heavy into phrases that are more generative, useful and supportive.
Due to time, space is limited to 15 attendees.
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that promotes healing on many levels. Reiki is both powerful and gentle. A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance and has many benefits for both client and practitioner, including altered states of consciousness and spiritual experiences. This is not a movement practice, but simply a healing gift of energy. Please come dressed comfortably and ready to relax on your yoga mat with blankets and bolsters to support you! Open to all, no prior experience necessary.
