InVisioning & Renewal Experience: Rituals of Transition
Experience The Four Gifts and The Five Qualities of Art and Nature in Alchemy
Facilitated by Lisa Chu, MD, and Amy Sullivan, LMFT
As spring leads into summer, flowers bloom and fruits begin to form, anticipating the warmth of summer to ripen.
How do we create simple practices for ourselves that will reliably bring us into a feeling of connection with the greater whole? In this workshop, we will explore the creation of rituals of transition from "ordinary" reality to a state of interconnected knowing. With deepening practice, these habits of listening, full presence, and sensory engagement with self and the environment, begin to permeate our everyday lives. We feel and sense our unique place in the ecosystem of Planet Earth, and we begin to walk with both humility and trust as we navigate our life path.
Our experience is inspired by the alchemy of art and nature and supported by practice of The Four Gifts and Five Qualities of InVisioning & Renewal.
The Four Gifts of InVisioning & Renewal:
1. The Gift of Sacred Silence
2. The Gift of Sensory Immersion in Nature
3. The Gift of Spontaneous Creation
4. The Gift of a Listening Circle
The Five Qualities of Inner Visioning:
A - Allowing
E - Easefulness
I - Innocence
O - Openness
U - YOU!
No prior art experience is expected.
