More

This 5-day retreat brings an opportunity for rest, reflection and renewal at the year’s end after the busyness of Christmas. It aims to provide a safe, supportive and nourishing environment, with space to form a deeper connection with yourself, with others and with nature. The retreat is open to anyone who has some experience of 1-1 Focusing. There will time each day for: · 1-1 Focusing sessions · Input and discussion on Focusing practice · Silent group walks · Group meditation · Early morning qigong (or personal practice) · Group sharing · Free time for resting, walking, etc. The retreat will be held partly in silence, but there is also time to interact socially with the group. Extra group activities such as Dartmoor walks, dance/movement, massage, poetry sharing, etc, also tend to arise on the retreats. We will also mark the turning of the year with a ritual or celebration. The retreat is structured around a daily schedule which is provided as a framework and support, but there is no obligation or pressure to attend every session and participants are encouraged to attune to and respect their own individual process and needs, which can include spending time alone. The retreat starts with supper on the evening of the first day, and ends after lunch on the last day. We bring and cook our own food – each person generally brings ingredients for one meal (lunch or supper) for the group and gets help to cook it – this supports a sense of group bonding and grounding, as well as keeping the cost of the retreat down. The total cost of food is shared equally by everyone in the group. The venue: Bala Brook Retreat Centre is a wonderful, comfortable, spacious venue, set right next to the Bala Brook in a beautiful, quiet location near South Brent on the edge of Dartmoor (20 minutes drive from Totnes and a 2 hour drive from Bristol). See www.balabrook.org.uk for further information about the centre. Costs & bookings: There will be a maximum of 14 places available on the retreat. Accommodation is in single or double rooms, many are en-suite. The cost of the retreat is £320 (£260 concs), not including food (the food cost usually works out at around £8 per day per person). Contact Gordon for a booking form if you would like to come on a retreat. I will need to receive a completed form (by email or post) plus a deposit of £100 to reserve a place. The balance of the retreat fee is payable 4-6 weeks before the start of the retreat.

Wholebody Focusing - Living the Dream, Achieving your Intentions in Life. Facilitated by Alex Maunder, BSc, MSTAT, WBF Co-ordinator in Training. Zoom Online: Wholebody Focusing - Living the Dream, Achieving your Intentions in Life- Alex Maunder, WBF Co-ordinator in Training (CIT), Alexander Technique Teacher and author of the recent Wholebody Focusing book (available from www.lulu.com or the FI bookstore).

I hope that you are all well. I have landed peacefully in Italy at Ananda and am continuing to "Celebrate Everything" in my life here. The food here is very nourishing organic vegetables, grains & salads and the quality of sunlight is exquisite ! I also feel very nourished by the daily meditations here.
I want you all to be able to continue practicing what you have learnt about WBF, so I am proposing an advanced WBF online Zoom course, Living the Dream - Achieving your Intentions in Life. This will be a regular 2 hours slot for the next 3 months up till Christmas. I will set up a Zoom meeting group for experienced WBF students to join.
The times I propose are 8.00 pm - 10.00 pm, CET (Central European time) Thurs evenings, (which is 7.00pm - 9.00pm London time) every week starting Thurs Oct 3rd.
For the first 3 weeks you can join the meetings and we will have a short meditation and then you can practice with a partner that I will pair you up with.You will go off into your break-out-rooms to do your swops, it could be anything from 20 mins to an hour each depending what you decide. So you can then feed back to each other and end the swop.
Once a month, for the 4th session, I will introduce a new advanced WBF topic after the meditation and you can then go into breakout rooms and work on this in pairs. After that we will meet for feedback in the larger group at the end. I will let you know in advance when this one will be.
The cost will be €40 per 4 weeks, which can be payed by Pay Pal or electronic transfer in advance we will do this for 12 weeks which will cost €120.
If you are interested in this idea please get back to me. There could be other people joining from my previous courses as well.With meditations,  clarifying your intentions in life, journaling and self-reflection.
This is an 12 week online Zoom course, Running from Oct 3rd - Dec 219th 2019, each Thurs, 19.00 - 21.00 London time, 20.00 - 22.00 CET, 14.00 - 16.00 New York time and 11.00 am - 13.00 Los Angeles time. Cost is €40/£40. All revenues (100%) will be donated to the WBF Neuroscience Research Project. Visit: www.wholebodyfocusing.org for more info. Payment and registration via Pay Pal, please e-mail me at alex.maunder4@gmail.com
