A Continuum Immersion:
Life-Nourishing Breath, Sound and Movement Practices
September 14 – 17, 2023 (Thursday evening to mid-day Sunday)
Dharmakaya Center for Wellbeing, Pinebush, NY
Continuum guide: Elaine Colandrea
The serene Dharmakaya retreat setting, where basic needs are elegantly met, allows multiple days of immersion into the breath, sound and fluid movement sequences of Continuum. The primary focus is on the life affirming act of supporting personal life force, rather than tending the day-to-day activities of survival, which often lock bodies and identities into tense self-limiting patterns.
Life force is difficult to define, yet possible to sense and nourish once we step away from outer focused action. The biologically based explorations in this workshop are resources to tend our inner fluid nature which is responsive to heartfelt and soulful attention.
Practicing in the covered Outdoor Pavilion restores our connection to nature, giving a necessary infusion of the elemental energies that make up our bodies and our world. The indoor Meditation Hall and fire pit offer additional spaces for nurturing introspective and interoceptive discoveries.
This is a somatic movement workshop accessible to all ages and levels of ability. Once laid out, the practices are done at one’s own pace. This self-guided aspect of Continuum builds inner authority and offers the opportunity for deeper levels of self-regulation – a necessary component of health, wellbeing, creativity and learning.
Workshop size is limited; Continuum experience is requested. In lieu of Continuum experience, please arrange an interview with workshop guide Elaine Colandrea, who will be happy to meet with you.
