The Heart of Movement and Sound

A Good Friday journey of Self-Compassion through Biodanza and Gong Bath with Ali Gunning and Anna Sadler

Friday 10th April 2020

1:00pm – 6:00pm
Zedshed 
£32.00 (Early Bird)£37.00 thereafter 

Experience the true nature of your compassionate heart; openness, warmth, connectedness and spaciousness in this four hour workshop combining two of the most powerful healing and expressive techniques, Biodanza and a Gong Bath. 

The session will be guided by Ali Gunning and Anna Sadler who are delighted to be creating this Spring holiday collaboration. Tea and healthy snacks are provided. 

For those who have not experienced Biodanza before, the movement practice means ‘The Dance Of Life’. Biodanza (guided by Anna) is an embodied way to express and connect with your physical, emotional and spiritual body. There are no steps to learn and each exercise is an invitation to move towards connection and the freedom to express yourself and to feel good. 

The gong sound bath (facilitated by Ali) is an immersive, meditative experience which may still the mind, deeply nourish the body and invite us to move into the heart space. Ali weaves together the vibrations of beautiful gongs as well as singing bowls, elemental instruments and her voice, creating a healing journey through sacred sound. 

Our experience has been that first liberating our energies through the Biodanza practise makes absorbing the healing vibrations and stillness of the gong bath even more delicious!

Please speak to us before booking if you are pregnant or have tinnitus, pace maker, epilepsy, metal implants from recent surgery or injuries/ mobility issues that need support. We will share what to bring once you’ve confirmed your place.

Meditation – An Afternoon Retreat

Saturday January 18th 2020

1:00pm – 6:00pm
St. Gluvias Community Hall, 95 West Street, Penryn, Cornwall, TR108ER
£25.00

This is a very special offering to enter in to silence as a way to deepen your meditation practice and to return to our natural state of being – peace and tranquility.

There are 4 ways to deepen your meditation practice:

Stillness, Silence, Space and Surrender.

Anna will use these qualities as a foundation for practice:

The afternoon will be fully guided by Anna Sadler of Calm Cornwall. Anna will combine mindful movement, pranayama exercises, relaxation techniques and meditation to nurture a place of rest in the mind and in the body.

This unique opportunity is open to anyone who has some experience of meditation. The space will be held in ‘noble silence’. The meditations will be guided.


Winter Solstice Biodanza – Dance in to the Light

You are invited to come and join us for an extra special Biodanza Class that will celebrate the Winter Solstice in a beautiful, enriching, warm and open hearted space.

On the shortest day and the longest night we will gather to honour the deep midwinter, the stillness that Winter calls fourth and we will dance for the growth cycle of new beginnings; as the sunlight returns.

The Winter Solstice has been celebrated through dance in many cultures throughout the world and in pre-history. This festival is believed to hold a powerful energy for regeneration, renewal, and self-reflection.

Bring your intentions as Anna and Rupert guide you on a movement journey, lighting the fire of regeneration, opening your hearts to renewal and self-reflection and embracing the stillness at this time of year. 

Together we will unite as one Dancing Tribe, open to celebrating Life and each other and we will move as a way to feel good. With great music and good company, we will expand in goodness using our breath, rhythm and freedom of expression and leave having celebrated the best parts of ourselves and each other. 

We will share warm masala chai after class. 

This class is for people who are happy to dive a little deeper in to their Biodanza journey.
