The Body as Tuning Fork: Recognizing and Trusting Inner Awareness WORKSHOP (Online)

Mary Rees

Event details

A first step in the creative process – towards a work of art, a business plan, or even what to cook for breakfast – is training oneself to move into, and be comfortable in, passive and receptive modes. Being passive and receptive is also an important part of seeing ourselves, our relationships, and of seeing beyond our usual patterns of thought. In this workshop, we’ll take more time to adjust to the extremely subtle, sometimes-unusual experience of being receptive, and further develop the capacity for capturing emergent knowing and potential creative insights.

Recommended reading: Being Prayer – Transforming Consciousness, by Mary Rees. Available through Amazon.
