New Culture and Embodied NVC: A journey into radical acceptance of your own wisdom.
Taught by Max Rivers.
If the Forum “reveals what is hidden,” then Embodied NVC (Non-violent communication) helps reveal the beauty of the wisdom that is hidden there. A foundational principle of NVC is that everything that we say or do is an attempt to get beautiful, life-affirming, universal needs satisfied. However, the sad reality is that our old (existing) culture has defined many of these basic and beautiful needs as bad, sinful, dangerous or just forbidden — creating despair these needs could ever be met! By convincing your conscious mind to reject these needs, we experience them as “triggers” or wounds that we suppress (hide) or lash out (react) in response to, which often leads to discord and disconnection.
These learned ways of reacting tragically tear the fabric of our communities, divorce us from loved ones, and disconnect us from our own truth and wisdom. But the heart’s desires live on beneath all that drama, beautiful and wise. Creating a New Culture that is sustainable requires learning how to translate our ingrained reaction to pain and loss into clear, transparent communications of our deepest truth and wisdom.
These truths live on in the body. Embodied NVC is a practical process for uncovering the wisdom, learning how to live guided by it, express it in its pure form, and even to hear it in the reactive expression of others. We’ll journey together through exploration of your real-life situations, movement and communication practice of the uncovering, reintegrating and expressing of your own hidden truths. We’ll teach you the skills developed in this new, embodied form of NVC which you can take back into your life, into your most intimate relationships, and to use in this new world culture we are co-creating together.
Into The Body with Nathan Marcuzzi
Movement, breath work and discussion around empathy & compassion.
The Art of Tantric/Sensual Massage with Shezza Walters
Learn the art of sensual touch with sensual touch magician Shezza. We begin by connecting deeply with our partner and then getting clear with our boundaries and desires as well as how to communicate them for greater intimacy. Then we will practice the art of touching for our own pleasure, followed by the five elements of touch, and other sensuous techniques. We will use breath sound and movement for greater potency. Allow magic to flow through your hands and your whole body as we dive deep into the healing potency of sensual massage.
Shezza will be offering her wisdom gained through offering thousands of Tantric massages all over the planet.
Ideally you will come with a partner as we will work with one person the whole time, but you can also find someone there.
Tantric Dance with Shezza Walters
Allow your sexual Energy, the most potent force in our body, to dance through you as you connect with yourself and others as the divine.
We will be moving our bodies, dancing out old patterns while dancing in our dreams. We will move and groove as medicine for ourselves, each other, and the planet.
