Our body responds to everything we perceive. Everything from outside and everything from within. Our tension is the stress response finding a home in the body, and tension, while often a useful initial response to what makes us feel unsafe, if harbored eventually limits our comfort, vitality, openness, and wellbeing as it depletes us. It’s far more exhausting to live in armor than it is to discover how to truly relax.
Deep Listening is the habit of paying close and tender attention to the body, mind, and heart so we can meet our “stress” differently. This type of attention provides us with more resources and a greater capacity—physically, mentally, and emotionally—to respond calmly, clearly, and wisely, and also to engage more fully in life.
Offering essential teachings from her book, Deep Listening, Jillian Pransky guides you to release blocked energy, surrender layers of deeply held tension, nurture your capacity for self-compassion, and help you access your inner wisdom.
With a blend of mindful slow flow and restorative yoga, mindfulness, reflection, walking in nature, and off-the-mat awareness practices, you learn Deep Listening tools that focus on experiencing your connectedness. This feeling of connection not only changes the way you respond to stress, it also leaves you feeling more at peace and sets the conditions for you to evolve and grow.
Please come prepared for some outdoor time; we will enjoy mindful walking meditations to enhance our connection to ourselves and the world around us.
