Summary of workshop: ABOUT: In this two hour workshop, we will identify the ways we habitually abandon our felt-sense & intuition to "check" ourselves in the eyes of others. We’ll explore forms of body-checking (the ways in which we measure our physical security & worth via external markers) as well as sense-checking, a sometimes amorphous, yet ubiquitous form of bypassing our deeper intuitions for the superficial stamp of social approval. Writing prompts, Partner Yoga, and courageous discussions will help us get to know our checking “parts,” and return sensitivity & trust to our core selves–the aspect of us that instinctively knows how to guide us through life lovingly, imperfectly, and in alignment with our deepest truths. Writers like Mary Oliver, Melissa Febos, & Sonya Rene Taylor will deepen our engagement, as we practice letting our embodied wisdom & presence guide the shapes we take on the mat, page and beyond. Meighan Leibert, visiting author, yoga instructor, & Life Coach, will support our deep dive inside through a guided meditation. My WHY: I want to help you move from an outside-in navigation system to an inside-out mode of mapping, appreciating, and articulating yourself in your space--on the page, mat, or in your extended life. I want to help you bring curiosity & compassion to the parts of you who habitually seek reassurance from the outside world, and help those parts return leadership to your Core Self/Intuition/Soul (call it what you want!)–the aspect of you that instinctively knows how to guide you through your life–lovingly, courageously, and in alignment with your deepest truths. Note: This is a Health at Every Size, Body Positive space. I can't wait to meet you! * Private address in Sleepy Hollow, San Anselmo, will be shared with attendees the week prior to this event. I can't wait to meet, move and write with you!
