Event description

Description


One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious.” - C.G. Jung

When we think of enlightenment as a noun describing a static state, it may be hard to achieve, what with our rolling, squirming, desirous human bodies. However, we can engage what’s alive in the body through dialogue, sound, movement, and intimate nonsexual physical contact, thereby enlightening our somatic shadows, shining light onto what might otherwise take the form of split-off selves, symptoms of illness, corrupt leadership, or plain old emotional noise.

Radical presence to ourselves or another can enlighten our somatic shadows, or the unmetabolized pain in our bodies that we wall off for fear of fully feeling. The secret good news: That fear is always worse than the natural release our bodies intrinsically know, but which has been trained out of us. Fortunately, we can recover our built-in way of enlightening even our scariest shadows. Come learn how, and find out about the nine-month Immersion.


“Wisdom of the Body can meet our primal need for physical contact, and spark our innate capacity for healing. It’s a process our bodies already know, and always have known.” -Jill Nagle, Founder
