7pm* UK: Embodiment for Men – with Lee & Richard – This session is cancelled for today
How to integrate the power of embodiment in your daily experience of being a man
If you’re a man interested in using the power of your body in daily life, this group may be for you.
We’ll explore teachings from yoga, mythology, science, the martial arts and indigenous peoples in this year-long invitation to action.
In these one-hour sessions, we’ll be stepping into boundaries, relationships, health and purpose.
There will be invitations to movement and to stillness, tools to take away and homework if you choose it.
