RECOVERING OUR SENSES in the 21st CENTURY: A Talk by Philip Shepherd

In this free-wheeling talk, Philip reveals how the particulars of our familiar environment create our deep sense of disconnection – because once you see how that happens, you create a new possibility for yourself: you can begin to step out of the undercurrent of anxiety, and return to a way of being that is deeply embodied, grounded in the present, and at ease in the world. A feed on the oxygen of fresh ideas and liberating perspectives

RADICAL WHOLENESS ~ PHILIP SHEPHERD, Weekend Workshop

Move out of your head and into your life.

Our deepest yearning is to experience wholeness in our lives – yet too often we feel scattered and off balance.  The main source of our fragmentation is that we have been taught to live in our heads.  Divided from the breath, the present, and the profound intelligence of the body, we sit in our heads and strain to make sense of it all.

SOUL MOTION: THE WAY OF THE MOVING MYSTIC - Michael Molin-Skelton and Aletia A. Alvarez

  • Madrona MindBody Institute (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Mysticism is neither a faith nor a belief, nor is it a principle or a dogma. A mystic is born; being a mystic means having a certain temperament, a certain outlook on life. It is for this reason that many are confused by the word mystic, because mysticism cannot be explained in plain words. 

Our path is to continue to open and receive the wisdom of body vision and knowledge.  This program takes the next step in receiving and recovering the somatic resources available to us through movement, ritual, poetry, nature, journaling, prayer, art, and the dynamics of tending space.
