We are woven into the web of life, in dynamic relationship with the world that surrounds us and with all that lies inside of us. How can we draw on these webs of interconnection to sustain us through turbulent times and keep us in resilient health? The weave of relationship within our bodies affects how we relate to others and to our environment. Together we hope to discover new ways to align with these connections to find greater energy and ease.
This online workshop series explores our inner resilience by deepening our connections to our cells, tissues and body systems. We will offer new ways to listen to them and new opportunities to let them speak.
Each month of this series has a new theme. You may sign up for one monthly theme at a time, or for the full series at a reduced price.
Whether you are a health professional seeking to expand your work, or a person interested in embodied experiences – you have a place in our circle.

June 6th & 13th, 16.00-18.00 CET, 750 SEK
Our skin faces out to touch our world and faces in to enfold us in ourselves. It is our boundary and our comfort, the place where we touch and are touched and the threshold where we come to know where we are.
How much are we at home in our own skins?
How can we build trust through touch and learn to open our hands toward the inner movements that show us evidence of healing?
Can we let touch in, even when it is far away?
Skin’s interface between what is inside and outside us is mirrored in both breathing and digestion, where air and food from outside is taken into cavities within. All three interfaces between what is inside and outside are central to our immunity and resilience. Skin also breathes and sheds outward while still holding our sea of inner fluid contained. It is a mother mantle that carries memories of how we lived in fluid before birth. The gentle pliability of our skin now clarifies our outer boundary of self. It is both soft and strong.
