Event description

Description

A workshop for curious men who desire to explore their relationship to their body.

Your body is an alive feedback system designed to communicate your deepest desires, but for many men communication with the body is clouded by domination, numbing, and shame. Men are taught that the language of the body is not worthy to be listened to. Common phrases like ‘no pain, no gain’, stop acting like a girl’, and real men don’t cry’ highlight the ways men are encouraged to override the experience of their body. Ultimately, dismissing the body creates pathways for addiction, violence, and emotional disconnection. Although our relationship with our body is bound in real experiences in our past, we can learn to kindly witness the ways this is reinacted, and reorient towards freedom.

This workshop will be co-led by Jenny Wade, LMHC and Knox Burnett, LMHC. Jenny is a counselor and yoga teacher who specializes in helping people to combat body shame. Knox is a counselor and personal trainer who specialises in body/mind integration. Join them for a day of teaching, reflection, and space to practice new ways of being in your body.

Price of the workshop does not include breakfast or lunch, but our location is near many local restaurants that can be enjoyed during breaks.

Early-bird (before February 1st): $120

After February 1st: $150
