Find peace in the presence of anxiety, pain, restlessness or sadness.
It is possible to cultivate greater peace in our switched on, plugged in, fast paced culture. If you’re feeling a little wobbly in daily life and recognise that your inner self needs attention – welcome! Embodied healing offers a gentle framework for accessing body wisdom, embracing your inner experiences, exploring subtle energy and connecting to an expanded sense of Self.
Having spent the last nine years growing a conscious relationship to the energy of anxiety, Liz understands that the inner wounds we feel yet can’t see can contribute to an overwhelming experience in daily life. When we experience restlessness, sadness, or pain we often seek soothing in ways that keep us asleep in our lives (unconscious). This can lead to habits that distract, numb and deny our capacity to accept and allow our inner experience to shift.
As we awaken to unconscious inner patterns and apply kind attention to areas of pain and disconnection we can begin to view discomfort and dis-ease as a gateway to the deeper peace we seek.
Perhaps you resonate with a mild state of sleep walking? You’re moving through, things get done, yet you’re far from the experience of thriving, or awake to the beauty of the present moment.
WHAT TO EXPECT
The workshop offers a gentle, grounded approach to navigate uncomfortable thoughts, feelings and sensations that live in the body. The workshop begins with a simple practice that teaches you how to access a state of presence underneath mental and emotional noise. From this experience of peace and presence, you will be supported to dive deeper into the discomforts that are held in the subtle energy body.
Liz facilitates an embodied (somatic) meditation (the AWAKE Process – Acknowledge, Witness, Allow, Kindness, Embrace) to assist attendees to stay present to thoughts, emotions and sensations that arise in the body. Within this process you are guided to bring gentle attention to areas of inner restlessness or discomfort in the body. Kind practices are incorporated such as gentle movement, mantra, music and body work for soothing and release of energy that arises.
Through out the workshop Liz weaves in stories sharing her experiences with anxiety, and awakening to subtle energy. Her grounded approach to healing supports an unfolding of conscious awareness and personal transformation in those that attend her workshops and retreats.
The space you held was so incredible and so supportive. To be with all those women, I felt so accepted even though I didn’t know them. I found myself at the very beginning saying to myself ‘I’m not going to cry, I’m not going to do it’ but then soon enough I couldn’t actually contain it. But it felt like such a safe place to let my emotions come through, I felt accepted and supported by all those beautiful women which isn’t something I often feel. Walking through the whole awake process, I felt so expanded and light by the end. When you got us to bring the light down into our hearts I really felt I was at my core. I have been using the method each day to assess how I am feeling and it really has helped me to stay out of my head. ~ Hannah
I absolutely loved being part of your workshop. I gained a lot from attending and I tried the method at home yesterday morning. It was incredible to feel the energy of someone else in the last activity and I loved being a part of the afternoon. Your story was incredibly insightful as well. I could really resonate with what you shared and you gave me a lot of hope/trust/faith as I navigate these muddy waters. ~ Hayley
It was a hard, yet beautiful experience that transcends words ❤️ Thank you. Claire
