Heart Above Head
How can we find the support to take risks? Katy Hawkins and Natalie Levin are joining forces for this special invitation to explore the risks of openness and placing the heart above the head. The two-hour workshop will consist of physical asana, a two-part meditation practice, and hands-on touch. We?ll wake up the trust muscles by using the support of props to help assist with the physical and emotional demands of inversions. We will use this foundation of courage to engage the interpersonal dimension in two related Tibetan meditation practices: Tonglen, or sending and receiving care, and Metta, or loving kindness meditation. We will close with a very simple, non-invasive sequence borrowed from Thai massage, performed not in partner pairs but in two moving concentric circles. In this workshop you can expect opera, glitter, and the magic of meshing worlds!
