Celebration of The Senses: A One Day Retreat To Explore Your True Nature at Amaravati Wellness Center
Celebration of The Senses: A Day to Experience Your True Nature.
With Gabriella Nagy (Shakti Rituals) and Santiago Nieto (Damaru Sound Journeys), in collaboration with Amaravati Wellness Center.
How deeply are we really aware of the presence, importance and qualities of our senses? How often do we acknowledge and appreciate their kindness? How embodied we truly are?
As humans, we have five essential senses: touch, sight, hearing, smell, and taste. All of them have the primary, yet complex mission of helping us perceive and understand the world around us. Our senses warn us about danger, and give us the ability to recognize value and to skillfully respond to the world around us.
Moreover, through our senses we have the capacity to expand our existence to the next level of evolution, being able to establish a steady, yet beautifully fluid connection with the cosmos and awaken our true nature as an active part of life on earth.
Our senses are magical, mysterious, wise, loving and generous. They guide us every second, nurturing our path to happiness, and if we slow down enough, we may experience the joy and pleasure of living in our beautiful body.
From 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday, May 29th, we will enjoy an immersive day of celebration, experiencing our senses through various approaches, and exploring ourselves as nature beings.
During the day, we will have meditation practices, active movement, and listening exercises, exploring our body wisdom and rediscovering the simplicity and joy of seeing, hearing, tasting, smelling, and touching, and beyond.
