Compassion ~ to simply be kind to another, but firstly to one’s self.
Compassion for self is an innate necessity, yet surprisingly something we, as a collective community often forget to do. Our minds work in connection with others, yet this connection first must begin within in order to have the capacity for true selfless altruism. Further, this innate necessity is remarkable, perhaps miraculous, as it works two-fold – meaning that the more compassion we offer to ourselves, the more compassion we can offer others, which in turn offers our minds, and neuro connectivity, growth, resilience, and integrated holistic wellbeing!
We welcome you to enjoy a weekend of understanding how your emotional wellbeing relates to the science of the mind and hormones, and how this cultivates positive epigenetic changes within you.
Clinical Yoga Therapy for glandular and hormonal health
Though we may not explicitly be aware to it, holistic wellbeing is actively affected by the relationship between our hypothalamus, hippocampus, and the neuropathways we cultivate through thoughts and behaviours. Basically, our overt behaviours and thoughts (including self and other compassion) lead to the activation of the pathways that regulate the endocrine system: glandular and hormonal health. Further it is this system that acts as a regulator of many other body systems. There are many ailments that may indicate a disintegrated endocrine system:
- skin problems, including dry skin and acne
- joint pains
- hair loss
- low sex drive
- mood problems
- weight gain
- accelerated aging
Join Leanne as she further explains and demonstrates the benefits of yoga therapy practices as they relate to cultivating a balanced hormonal and endocrine system. All practices taught are based on the core principles of yoga therapy within the yoga tradition and will explore prana, kindness to self, listening to the body and heart, exploring the mind.
Meditations of Loving-Kindness & Compassion
Celia continues to demonstrate the cultivation of compassion with the demonstration of meditation practices of loving-kindness and Thong Len, as well as more in depth wisdom of the neurology of compassion.
Learn, not only the basis of what it means to strengthen your vagal tone, so too the practices that you shall be able to take with you in order to continue to cultivate compassion throughout your lifespan.
The Compassionate Body – yoga postures to open the heart, build confidence & cultivate compassion
Opening our hearts and minds to loving others and ourselves is not an instantaneous thought driven concept. Indeed, opening the heart, building confidence, and cultivating compassion comes with yoga postures and practice that specifically are designed to beget an integrated mind, body, and soul that recognizes the relationship between awareness, practice, and enlightenment. All postures will be focused on opening the heart and practiced with powerful compassion mental exercises to leave you feeling on top of the world, open hearted and true for days to come.
Enjoy a weekend surrounded by natural beauty and of teachings created for your souls aspiration of awareness of true self, and your true hearts connection.
Lunching each day at the Upper Brookfield Sanctuary
Everyone brings a small plate to share for lunch. It is a delicious affair. We love small and easy dishes; salads are always well received, so too small fruit plates, fresh breads, dips, and we certainly enjoy the creative plate! Feel free to contact us should you have any questions regarding food requirements.
