Dharma Retreat: “Somatic Dharma”

1–3 April 2022
Join our compassionate community to practice being more & doing less!
This retreat will be an opportunity to take time for oneself, to be gounded in the wisdom of the body, and center one's attention with heartful qualities of care, compassion & joy.

NeuroSystemics Dharma

NeuroSystemics is an integrative methodology building resiliency and empowerment internally and in relationships. The Dharma program focuses specifically on grounding one’s attention and awareness in highly regulated nervous system states to experience ease, calm and joy. This offers deep possibilities of insight and wisdom to then arise.

Retreat Description

This “Somatic Dharma” retreat will explore the central importance of grounding one’s meditation practice in a regulated nervous system. So much of our daily life experience challenges the sense of feeling deeply embodied and feeling good, so it is key to offer the nervous system some space, kindness and attention to strengthen it. This resilience-building offers profound possibilities to deepen insight and understanding the true nature of mind.

In this retreat, we will:

  • Explore the links between somatics & Buddhist spirituality
  • Practice a range of nervous system regulation tools
  • Offer you a personal session to deepen embodiment by a trained somatic facilitator (limited spaces, see below)
  • Be supported by the wider holding of a team of compassionate facilitators
  • Find ways to integrate the practices in daily life

 

Schedule

The retreat starts on Friday April 1st at 6:30pm CEST for a welcoming and presentation of the coordination elements of the retreat, until Sunday 12:30pm CEST

You do not have to come to every session – we understand that you may have issues with some of the sessions, including timezone differences or other commitments you must maintain. It is fine to join for whichever sessions you can come to!

 

Private somatic regulation session

One of the unique features and contributions of NeuroSystemics to meditation and dharma practice, is to combine nervous system science with Buddhist practices. As part of this retreat you will have the opportunity to receive a 20-30 minute session with a trained professional supporting you to

  • better regulate your nervous system
  • strengthen your capacity to be in the here-and-now
  • ground your awareness in your body with ease, gentleness & pleasure
