NeuroSystemics is an integrative methodology building resiliency and empowerment internally and in relationships. The Dharma program focuses specifically on building a compassionate community and grounding one’s attention and awareness in highly regulated nervous system states to experience ease, calm and joy. These conditions offer deep possibilities of insight and wisdom to then arise, and live a more meaningful life.
The quality of our minds and body is highly influenced by the quality of relationships around us. Developing clarity in our minds and hearts is related to developing mid-sight, which is how well and embedded we feel in the physical space we are in. This Social Dharma retreat will explore how we can build an relational environment of trust, kindness and openness, which would allow us to connect deeper into ourselves. In particular, we will
- Inquire into what helps us feel safe and good in group spaces
- Explore how relationships can help to deepen your self-understanding
- Practice metta (loving-kindness meditation) in a relational format
- Practice insight meditation and mouvement practices in silence
- How to integrate basic meditation tools in daily life
The retreat starts on Friday October 13th at 6pm CEST for a welcoming and presentation of the coordination elements of the retreat, until Sunday October 15 1pm CEST
We expect that you come to all sessions – continuity of attendance and commtiment to the retreat will help you go deeper. If however, your life circumstances do not allow to come for every session, you may still attend.
Small group practices
As part of our nervous system-informed framework, we will explore how we can support one another in meditation, which we call social meditation. You will be invited to join a small group of practitioners with a Soma (Somatic facilitator) and experience silent and communication practices to deepen your relationship with yourself and others.
Private “Somatic Regulation” sessions
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 further in your experience and your body with ease, gentleness & pleasure
