This session is an exploration of body sounds and breath work. We will use the simple technique of humming to revitalize our bodies, minds and emotional selves. We look forward to having you join us in this cacophonous healing session. As we explore our own voices and stabilize our nervous systems, I invite you to relax and relish in this present moment that we share. Together we're better, especially when encompassed in an atmosphere of Love.
Our Hearts Home
-Seánan Forbes (they/them)
Gathering from the cultivated garden of our day, our sangha will collectively create a mindful, heart-full poem, moving from our retreat back to our daily lives with artful grace. Participants will receive a print-quality PDF for the meditative poets who turned love into words.
