THE HEALING JOURNEY: MOVING BEYOND TRAUMA & ILLNESS WITH AWARENESS Workshop
Saturday, November 23rd
Can the encounter with trauma or critical illness, either in one’s own body or that of another, be the inspiration to plunge beyond our usual patterns, and deeply heal our hearts and spirits? Drawing upon the wisdom of Yoga, Qigong, Buddhism, and the latest scientific research, this workshop offers Yoga as a support for those working through traumatic experience, chronic illness, or extreme injury.
Having applied these wisdom traditions during her own treatment for breast cancer, Dana Byerlee will guide you through the gentle but profound movements, breath work, visualization, and meditation techniques she has used in her journey to reclaim her heath.
You will receive a workbook featuring the discussed practices and techniques to continue exploring in your own time. No prior meditation or yoga experience necessary. Both those on their own healing path, as well as caregivers are welcome.
