THE ANATOMY OF ACTION

INNER WORK FOR THE OUTER WORLD

(enrollment currently closed)

5 Weeks
Monday, June 13 - Friday, July 15
Virtual, via Zoom

For those wanting to really bring their practice into their life
but aren't sure how.

Why do we experience practice as being so much more
meaningful than the rest of our life?

A simple 60 minute movement class can ground us and glow us up.
And on retreat we can get super clear
on what we want and what to do.

And then *poof*
that confidence and clarity evaporates upon returning
to the mundane tasks of "regular" life
and the overwhelm of the "real" world.
Why? What can we do about it? 


The Anatomy of Action offers ways to align:

-- our practice & life

-- our values & actions

-- our feelings & intentions


We learn ways to:

-- move through the overwhelm that fogs up our vision

-- tap into our most life-sustaining feelings

-- clarify the values we hold most dear

-- bring this inner work into inspired action in the outer world


OUR CORE PRACTICES:

* meditation (slowing down, becoming aware)

* conscious movement

* conscious rest

* somatics (working internally with what we’re aware of)

* embodied self inquiry (asking questions, listening)

* thought experimentation (imagining "what if" scenarios)

* action items (testing out ideas and plans through normal activities)



No meditation experience necessary and all bodies welcome.

 WEEKLY SCHEDULE (beginning Monday June 13th):

5 WEEK OUTLINE (June 13 - July 15): 

Week 1: Working with Overwhelm & Life's Mystery and Confusion
A primer of small, simple and easy-to-use tools to move through the layer of stress, anxiety and other energies that block us from resting in our deeper self and accessing our creativity and insight. We'll practice these liberatory tools on our own + in optional partner mutual-care, as well as explore the science behind these tools.

Week 2: Exploring the Body as Change

Opening awareness to the rich landscape of sensations, desires and values hidden underneath all the clutter and noise. Meditation, movement and all our Core Practices (listed above) will come into play as we tap into our deeper self, what we might want and what we might do, guided by discernment and maturity.

Week 3: Re-aligning Feeling & Values-Based Action

Summoning emotional intelligence, gut instinct and other forms of body wisdom + exploring how this wisdom relates to our decisions, plans and relationships with ourselves, others and larger culture + leaning into possible futures as a conscious life practice and meaning-making process.

Week 4: Practicing Inner & Outer Futures We Want to Live In
Allowing life to be a safe testing ground where we consciously and discreetly undertake small experiments in shaping change and creating futures that honor the legacy of our ancestors and support us, our children, the planet and all beings.

Week 5: Integration & Rest
Open time to catch up, reflect. Wednesday Subtle Movement/ Somatics class will be devoted to answering questions and clarification. Friday Yoga-based flow will be held as usual to help the body integrate, clear and make space for the new. Tina will be available for email support this week.

These practices and processes are nothing new.
They've been imagined, gleaned, shaped and honed by our ancestors for countless generations. And just as those who came before us tested out and refined these tools in their own lives, we can do the same in our own lives.

May these tools and toys bolster our intentions to know and do better as individuals and as a collective.
