Tending the Earth, Tending Ourselves

Instructor: Dina Greenberg & Juul Bruin

Are you craving the opportunity to perform the “radical act” of slowing down? Do you feel overwhelmed and helpless in the face of climate change and its impact on the earth and its inhabitants? Would you like to discover ways to make small but profound changes that impact not only you, but the entire ecosystem of which we are a part? If you’ve answered yes to any of these questions, we invite you to join us! This three-hour workshop guides participants through an exploration of our relationships with one another and our place—as humans—within the natural world. We'll practice the concepts of dimensionality, wholeness, and cultivating a present-centered, felt experience. Segments are devoted to spending time in nature, meditation, and reflective journaling. Weather permitting: the workshop takes place outdoors on the grounds of the CAM Sculpture Garden. "If we accept ecology's insights that we exist in densely woven networks, then we must also accept that every choice we make sends out ripples, even if we are not consciously choosing. The choice we have is not whether, but only how, we change the world." - Frances Moore Lappe

Healthy Living

The Art of Non Doing - Deep Relaxation

Instructor: Shannon Miller

The Art of Non-Doing is an experience that teaches us how to relax deeply as in sleep, while remaining awake. Give yourself permission to do nothing. Aligning beautifully with Spring Equinox and a full moon, you are invited to set an intention, release unmanaged stress, decrease pain, release struggling & striving, and create a greater sense of calm and harmony in your life. In the after-hours quiet of CAM exhibition "Story of the Time when Gods were Everywhere: teamLab", you are guided through the exploration of self - an experience done lying down - to induce relaxation, healing, and a deep state of consciousness. Resting in the space between being awake and asleep (Theta / Delta brainwaves), the body is invited to completely relax while you become systematically and increasingly aware of the inner world. There is nothing to do or achieve. Notice how relaxed the body is, how soft the breath is, how silent the mind is, how quiet the heartbeat is. Your intention and experience is completed with a Tibetan Singing & Quartz Crystal Bowl Sound Bath that washes over and through you to clear, move, and harmonize the mind, body and spirit.

Adult: All Levels - 2019-03 WS4
April 24, Wed., 6:00 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. Various
