About This Event
Let Martin Aylward lead you on a journey to activate and explore the 3 principal centres of experience: the Belly centre of embodiment, where we learn to inhabit our experience ever more fully; the Heart centre of love, where we free up our undigested emotional life, and open to ever deepening care, joy and spaciousness; and the Head centre of intuition and wisdom, where we learn to disengage from habitual and counterproductive thought patterns, and train the deeper capacities of mind.
The weekend will include guided and silent meditation practice, explorations with Martin and inquiry exercises.
