Being and Belonging

Resting in the body, inhabiting, being here, just as I am. I belong to this moment and the simplicity of what is arising and falling away.

This invitation allows so much possibility; allowing this moment, this movement, this gesture to touch me and be an invitation to life.

In good company we come together in a relationship of opening and closing of inviting and encouraging life to be explored through these bodies.

This retreat will be an inquiry to come home to this moment.  Exploring through the substance of our bodies the life that flows through us, how this meets another, community and how we are in the landscape at large.

Dance and Movement, sessions in the Studio either exploring a theme or movement enquiry, such as moving from center, or simply letting it all be and dancing to music.

Matt Class, with influences of Somatic Yoga, Feldenkrais, Body Mind Centering and fundamental movement principles, to wake up our senses and drop into our bodies.

Moving out on the Landscape; taking our movement out to meet the land. This is such a magical landscape with strong presence of place offering space for our systems to unravel and land.

Digesting the Work in Good Company. Giving time with each other to allow ourselves to digest the material and offer ourselves nourishment. Bodywork into movement, moving meditation, art space, sharing.

Location and Venue: We will be based at the Canolfan Pentre Ifan a 600-year-old Tudor gatehouse located some 2 miles from Newport, between Fishguard and Cardigan in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. The centre is surrounded by the ancient

Tycanol woodland, Castell Henllys iron age hill fort and within walking distance of Pentre Ifan burial chamber.
