Yoga and Nature Mandala Workshop

Spend a September day in retreat with Bethany Theuerkauf  at Loonsong in Country Harbour with the intention of connecting to the rhythms of the natural world and how this transition time of the seasons coincides with the needs and desires of the home where we live, that of our bodies. By honoring the Sacred in Nature while simultaneously connecting to the deeper parts of Self we come away from this with a sense of clarity on that which is truly important and meaningful to our lives. Stepping away, even for a day, can gently alter our gaze at the world.

This will be a day of quiet reflection, gentle movement, creating something of beauty set with personal intention and the deliciousness of sharing lovingly prepared food together. Days at Loonsong with Bethany are always like a balm to the soul.

Art Gone Wild

Peace on the Water

Art, Movement, Magic.   Life Unfolding.   Loonsong.

For this first offering I will be providing cotton batik fabric and a variety of pallets to create your art piece on. From small and several to large and single you will go home with something of beauty from your inner dwelling place of creativity.

This day includes movement in its offering, both free lance and structured. This helps to keep the creative juices of the artist in us flowing and vitally engaged in the body. Music will play to entice and invite any and all spontaneous movement. Other activities to engage in are yoga, floorplay, walking, swimming when warm, sauna, massage, hammock hanging, conversation and just being in nature in a beautiful place. Allow your heart to guide you in the simplicity of your day unfolding.

We will share a potluck picnic so please bring easy food.  I will provide coffee, tea and snacks throughout the day.

This day is open to all artists and is a great opportunity to spend time at Loonsong and to draw, paint or photograph this beautiful area. Bring an addition to the picnic and join in for any of our play.

Explorations of Inner Space

$110 includes lunch, snacks

 

In these times of turbulence, uncertainty and anxiety it can be helpful to explore one’s “inner space” where there is a source of balance, strength, and wisdom. This experiential workshop guides participants to that inner calm through centering exercises, relaxation, guided imagery, free writing/drawing, and discussion. 

Susan Walsh is a counselling therapist with a background in creative arts and Psychosynthesis, a therapeutic approach that is based on the premise that every person has the potential to access an inner wisdom and source of healing.
