September 1 @ 1:00 pm - September 3 @ 4:00 pm
Taste The Wild Waters of Wholeness
Join us for 3 days at Trinity Hot Springs in Idaho as we dive into the primordial source of being
in “the deepest known source of the oldest known spring water’ on the planet.
This process-oriented workshop is for EVERY BODY, gender and orientation
to awaken, nourish and re-member the bio-intelligence of Sexual Energy and Core Integrity.
A Stalking Wild Collaboration is a creative adventure!
A creative confluence of two bodies of work, with the express purpose of reconnecting with our originality, wisdom and essence in body, energy and soul.
This workshop retreat will move you from deep
within and awaken a profound sense of inner strength, intimacy and creative agency.
Liz offers the opportunity to heal and restore core tissue called psoas. create sexual integration, and awaken core integrity. Joining Liz is Santa Fe-based MogaDao Archetypal QiGong and Sexuality Teacher, Sarah Byrden, who brings to our explorations her unique transmission of the teachings and practices of MogaDao Depth Sexuality, a practice tradition and culture of sexual reclamation and integrity that holds sexuality in its rightful place of primordial power.
NOTE THIS RETREAT TAKES PLACE DURING WEEK DAYS
Sarah’s work acknowledges sexual energy as the fundamental energy of every aspect of our lives, inseparable from our conception and incarnation and responsible for physical health and vitality, creativity and generosity, trust in the essential goodness of being and our ability to live a life that is aligned with purpose. Our sexual energy, in a Daoist view, holds the code, quite literally, for our destiny. Through Archetypal Qigong practices, a poetic re-mythologizing of our sex, and the integration and exploration of the most core somatic structures of sex, including psoas, we embark on a journey of healing, embodiment and our responsibility to the power and source of our sexual energy and body.
Liz’s work is an invitation to awaken into a different consciousness from the one society has provided us. Using micro, non-linear, multi-dimensional, fluid movement, and sound frequency we evoke a different experience of existing – under the cultural and historical terrain – that offers support and resiliency since the beginning of time. This biological awareness changes our sense of being, shifting our focus, and helping us to emerge from the isolation of separation and isolation to subsequently dissolve our insistence on being an objectified body. The process integrates us and awakens us to consciously participate in the larger biological processes of life. When we allow ourselves the opportunity to simply explore, evoke, and call forth innate movement we discover for ourselves a deep inner knowing that elicits profound conductivity, vital meaning, and delicious playfulness.
