to breathe, with everything having the power to teach and guide, with that in blessing we will live.”

BodyEcology workshops and retreats are open to anyone who is willing to think of themselves outside of conventional frames of reference and learn the possibilities of ecological dialogue with the world.

The workshops link sensory acuity with response-able action, and integrate intelligence with intuition, heart and soul.

Courses include Introduction to Shamanic Awareness, healers’ training, artists’ development, and eco-retreats, and are devised with personal and professional enrichment in mind.

SAMPLE RETREATS:

RE-STORYING: restorative workshops for artists (and others) affected by COVID19.

A six-month, multi-modal process beginning May 2021 for artists (across all disciplines) in the ACT region and beyond, affected by the COVID19. Available in person and online. More information here .  This process is funded by ACT Health and supported by The Street Theater, Canberra.

THE RE-GENESIS SERIES

This workshop is appropriate for anyone interested in experiencing themselves—in movement or in stillness, in deep relationship and full breath–as a preparation for more extensive process work next year which will include retreat in natural bush surroundings.
