Easing Sorrow: Revealing Inner Strength
Saturday, October 7, 2017, 1-4pm
with Barbara Carlson and Lori Furbush
Autumn is a time when nature releases the abundance of the summer season of growth. We gather in and harvest this bounty as well as relinquish or release what is no longer needed that it may become compost for future growth. We reflect on the things, situations, relationships, or mental/emotional habits that we are harvesting as well as those things that have served their purpose or may no longer hold value and meaning in our lives. We may experience sadness or sorrow with the separation and letting go inherent in this reflection. As each exhalation of our breath opens a brief space for the next “inspiration,” acknowledging and releasing the sorrow experienced for what is ending assists us to find what remains that is precious, valuable, and essential in our lives. In this 3-hour workshop, we will explore skills to help us facilitate the essential energies of autumn through:
Qigong • Guided Individual Practice/Reflection • Group Discussion
Barbara Carlson facilitates classes and retreats that focus on a variety of behavioral health and emotional wellness themes with an emphasis on cultivating awareness and health of mind, body, and spirit.
Lori Furbush teaches Qigong, Yoga, and Reiki with an emphasis on cultivating our inherent wisdom for balancing, healing, and harmonizing within the rhythms of nature.
Lori’s Private Studio, 1529 Kjell Court, Santa Rosa, CA 95405. Space limited to 10 participants.
