Meditate + Connect is an experience devoted to human connection and self-care. Guided meditation, silent practice, and nurtured conversations will let you dive deep into the present moment.
Our theme for this gathering is Touch. As humans, our experience as physical beings is fundamental to our experience of life, literally and figuratively. As infants, we require caring touch to live and thrive. When someone does something that moves you deeply, you might say, "I was touched by your kindness."
Touch is a way we connect with our world and each other. As a baby, you explored your world through touch. And as we grew to adulthood, we also have life experiences -- such as past trauma, social anxiety, or high sensitivity -- that influence our relationship to touch. Every community has social rules about touch -- what's OK, and when, and why.
Increase your awareness, deepen your experience. You'll be guided in meditation to develop your awareness of physical sensation in your own body, and deepen your experience of the present moment. You'll practice welcoming your thoughts and emotions along the way, and gain greater insight to your own life experience around touch.
Join the conversation. What's your experience with touch? How do you meet your human need for caring touch if you're single? How can you communicate boundaries and desires about touch with others?
We'll talk about this and more. You will also have the opportunity to practice caring and healing touch, if you would like.
Cost: $35 - $45
