Description

Come dive into your body and explore the depths of sensation, feeling, action and perception through the elements of earth, water, fire and air in this 6-day movement training.

This movement immersion is dedicated to exploring and encouraging the qualities of the elements that are intimately alive in our bodies; qualities that when nourished and energized enhance our presence and experience of life.

Over the last few years of teaching movement workshops around the world, it has become quite evident to me just how much our bodies long for movement and desire for more… more fluency, more depth, more ease, more integration, more freedom, more space and more time to explore it all.

This immersion is designed to do just to that.

We’ll explore the experience of abundance in our bodies and discover how our bodies wish to move, open and transform. We’ll also go beyond the body movement, and focus on where we wish to create abundance in our lives; encouraging the qualities and potential in our bodies that hold this richness.

USING THE ELEMENTS AS A CONTAINER for EXPLORATION
Whether you wish for more flow, more action, more creativity, more space, more ideas, more intimacy, more joy, more possibilities, more passion…they can all be found in the elements ; in how our bodies incorporate the qualities and essence of air, fire, water and earth.

The elements provide an endless container for exploration and allow you to immerse yourself into moving from and as these different facets of your body.

Moving as…

  • Profound presence
  • Fluid mystery
  • Warm passion
  • Expansive clarity

OUR COLLECTIVE YEARNINGS
Our deeper, un-met yearnings can be opened and expressed quite naturally through our bodies. The yearning for more depth in our lives, our relationships, our life’s work, our spiritual practices. When we explore the depth, texture and variety our bodies hold, we coax the natural vibration of our yearnings out into the world; we give them breath, circulation, space, and life.

And when we move these yearnings collectively, it opens us up to even more unexpected richness.

CULTIVATING MORE CAPACITY IN YOUR MOVEMENT
Each element relates to a different physical system of the body. You’ll learn how to move with and from these different areas.

  • Moving simply from your bones and becoming the slow pulse of EARTH.
  • Accessing the fluid, cool adaptability of WATER and feeling the intuitive movements of your internal body.
  • Connecting directly to the actions of your muscles, and moving from your inner FIRE to express yourself.
  • Sensitizing to the expansiveness of your skin and moving and perceiving the world with the lightness of AIR.

It takes time and space to cultivate our capacity to move with this richness and intimacy. In this immersion, we’ll take the time and space to discover, open and nourish previously unexplored qualities and aspects of ourselves. Space to absorb and move as we are. Time to enliven and enrich our potential.

ACCESSING MORE DEPTH IN and through YOUR MOVEMENT
As we tune into the elements, we learn to feel and move our bodies from the different paces, rhythms, weights, sizes and shapes of each element. We attune ourselves to each element’s characteristics and the nuances of their energy and flow. We remember that we are the perfect blend of Air, Fire, Water and Earth.

There is joy in feeling the cells of your bones come alive, mystery as you move from your organs and watery depths. There is a warm rush as you move with fiery, muscular action, and an unending lightness of sensation, as your skin senses itself in space.

We’ll be moving and tuning in physically 4-5 hours a day depending on the body system and element. We’ll enhance the movement with rich embodiment practices. You’ll be given a lot of space to find your own way. How does your body want to express the deep steadiness of earth? How much mystery will you discover in the deep waters? What warmth will emanate from your fire? Can you move as lightly as air?

IS THIS FOR YOU?

  • You are deeply craving more movement in your life and your body.
  • You’re ready to deeply explore life subjects through a different lens – beyond just the mind – in a physical, vibrant way.
  • You invest in self-care and different body practices, and have a strong wish to go deeper and enhance your self-development.
  • Life’s circumstances have pulled you away from your intuition and sense of deeper purpose, and you long to reconnect
  • You know that the answers and capacities are in you for all you wish to be, and you long to discover this through your body.
  • You desire more joy and playfulness and are ready to explore this through movement.

YOU WILL LEARN HOW TO:

  • Drop into the felt experience of your bones, fluid system, organs, muscles, skin and senses
  • Move from these different systems and go deeper into their qualities, energy and capacities
  • Enhance what emerges from each element through breath and embodiment practices and writing
  • Merge the different qualities and energies of each element to support your whole.
  • Connect your embodied experience to life situations; to where you wish for abundance and richness
  • Access the force of each element in stillness

  • I couldn't have felt in better hands.

    Taking an emotional and physical journey of this kind feels like a huge exercise in trust and I couldn’t have felt in better hands or better supported as I travelled.

    Carolyn K. ~ U.K.
  • With love, care and firmness, Marcela inspires me to let go of old beliefs, fears and hurts.

    Marcela is one of the few workshop leaders I know, who is able to hold space for the participants and at the same time not allowing them to buy into their own BS, nurturing with care, love, and firmness. She rests in herself enough to show her own insecurities and growing edge, which encourages me to go deeper and dare to slowly let go of old beliefs, fears and childhood hurts.

    Majbrit V. ~ Copenhagen
  • I now have tools that help me not to shrink but instead allow me to become more embodied with strength and vitality, in everyday life.

    I highly recommend this retreat and doing any sort of work with Marcela. She has the ability to hold incredible space and always seems to know the “right” thing to say. I gained so much from the entire week. I learnt about myself, and the stories and patterns held within my body. Working with Marcela, I discovered new movement, giving me more options. I now have tools that help me not to shrink but instead allow me to become more embodied with strength and vitality, in everyday life.
