~ Cultivate Greater Ease in Everyday Life ~ 6 Week Course

 

Over the years teaching and sharing meditation, I’ve come to appreciate that meditation often requires a different approach for women. Many women begin a meditation practice and quickly find themselves frustrated as they are met with intense feelings, lots of thoughts and energetic baggage. Through offering an embodied experience of meditation, women can more playfully find a doorway to experiencing greater ease and peace in daily life.

Women are innately attuned to taking care of the needs of the family and greater community before themselves. In a world of increasing stress, anxiety, disconnection and depression, women require space to meet themselves with love, kindness and acceptance. Often the most challenging step in our culture is self-permission to slow down, and create space to be.

Embodied meditation aims to support sensitive women to grow a relationship with their inner self. You may notice that these sensitivities show up as daily overwhelm, over-reactivity and indecision. Ease comes when you feel safe to embrace your feminine experience (shifting energies, hormones and desires). Through awakening intuition and sensory awareness, this class can open women to a life of increasing beauty and deeper meaning.

Can you feel yourself held by the earth, by the cycles of nature, by the breath?

Open to the mystery and medicine of your unique feminine Self.

EMBODIED MEDITATION FOR WOMEN ~ 6 Week Class

Facilitated over six weeks, Embodied Meditation for Women offers a welcoming space to experience meditation as an intuitive and engaging practice. Grounded in feminine wisdom, together we explore an array of practices to ease stress, cultivate self-kindness and gather conscious tools to navigate everyday life.

The classes can be enjoyed by beginners or experienced meditation students – all women who desire a heartfelt connection with themselves. Attendance over six weeks will support you to intuitively establish a practice that embraces your unique essence. From here awakening awareness can be nurtured, and stress and imbalance can naturally dissipate. 

I joined the embodied meditation group with no real understanding or expectations. What I have finished with is a beautiful, deeper understanding of how to connect with myself and my emotions, in the moment, day-day. The group format added an extra wonderful layer. Connecting with other women, and sharing their experience added another layer of acceptance and compassion and greater understanding. What a wonderful experience. A soul-deep thank you Liz. ~ Shonali

Just wanted to thank you for providing the most beautiful and loving space during the mediation classes. I have loved coming to them to deepen my meditation practice and be guided by you to explore life, my thoughts and my own soul. You provided everything I didn’t realise I needed. Here is to beautiful new beginnings for me and you! Hope to see you soon. Much love to you! ~ F

I’ve been meaning to write and say thank you for the 6 week meditation circle and say how beneficial it was for me. The practices quietly grounded me week by week and left lasting effects that continued until the next class. The changes happened in gentle, subtle ways yet the effects were really significant. I enjoyed each and every meeting and always left feeling much better and more whole. It’s hard to put into words how much I got out of it , but it was a lot and I thank you for your wise, kind guidance.

~ Rachel

I feel like your classes have really helped me to have some time and reflection for myself without any should’s and have to’s – it is just happening – which feels like a big shift for me – so thank you! 

Thank you for providing the space and for being a conduit. Thank you for your gentle wisdom and engaged presence. I have loved softening and engaging with the energy of the group – thank you for this beautiful gift. ~ Dani

Together we explore meditative practices that support the nervous system toward balance, the mind toward stillness and the heart toward openness:

 

  • Grounding, diaphragmatic breathing and the central nervous system
  • Body awareness and gentle, mindful movement
  • Sound meditation and play
  • Feminine cyclical wisdom (life, seasonal, lunar, menstrual cycles)
  • Heart opening meditation
  • The Awake Method as a framework for connecting with body wisdom 
  • Deep rest and self-reflection

Women naturally become more creative following periods of deep rest.
