Stillness is the Catalyst for Authentic Change
Saturday and Sunday, April 29th & 30th, 2023
The practices you choose to support the process of change with represents only the first step. This is because how you practice is more important than the specific practice chosen. When we infuse our practices – whether yoga, meditation, or thermal stress exposure – with the quality of Stillness, we access the practices’ transformational potential. In this 2-day workshop at Maruia Hot Springs, Dr. Luke Sniewski, author of the Best-Selling book, Somawise, will guide an immersive experience into the transformational quality of Stillness.
Maruia Hot Springs, South Island, New Zealand
Maruia Hot Springs is an award-winning natural hot springs, day spa and wellness destination tucked among the snow-capped Southern Alps on the picturesque Lewis Pass national reserve. Instantly feel connected to the mountainous landscape and nature surrounding you whilst you gift your body with therapeutic practices for the mind, body, & soul.
What to Expect
The intention of this Stillness Workshop is to combine intellectual guidance with direct experience. Once you feel how somatic practices impact your body, you’ll be able to use these experiences as a reference point for future practice. Rather than playing mind games and crossing another task off of a checklist, you’ll discover how Stillness heals the body, connects us back to our intuitive sense, and teaches a new way of being in the world.
Your body will be immersed in a nurturing and nourishing environment that includes meditation and breathwork, restorative yin yoga, geothermal spa bathing, sauna infusions, cold exposure, wholesome & healthy meals, and opportunities for integration, inquiry and group discussion.
You will leave with a deeper understanding of – and greater connection to – your body, as well as self-care practices that will support you in everyday life. Your body and mind will have received the gift of recovery while you learn tools and techniques to help your relationships deepen and thrive.
