Mindfulness and Movement Medicine are practices designed to resource and support us in coping with the challenges and stresses of modern living.   Mindfulness is the practice of fostering moment-to-moment awareness of our thoughts, feelings and bodily sensations, and surrounding environment.  Movement Medicine is the practice of connecting with and giving expression to the authentic self through movement and dance.

This day will consist of some of the basic awareness practices at the core of mindfulness.  We will then bring this into movement by using some of the tools and maps of movement medicine.  This potent combination of anchoring mindfully and conscious embodied movement, will provide skills and tools to reduce your stress and increase your capacity to be present and engaged as you move through your day to day life.

The workshop will take place in the peaceful and idyllic setting of Kinsale Pottery overlooking the Bandon river.  A light vegetarian lunch will be provided.

The workshop begins at 10am sharp and will conclude at 4.30pm.
