Join Ellen in an exploration of the body in the tradition of Non-Duality and Tantric Kashmir Shaivism. This ancient approach is an invitation to experience our body as it truly is: a ﬂow of sensation appearing, unfolding and dissolving within the pure openness of Awareness.
Using guided meditation, simple postures and movements, breathing, visualisations and dialogues, we reacquaint ourselves with our body directly, free of concepts or images. In this contemplation resistances and chains of bodily contractions, the habits that create the illusion that our identity is limited, located and separate are revealed for what they are: simple sensations that come and go in Awareness. We come to see and feel that our true identity is pure openness, limitless and ever present. Gently and effortlessly, the body is slowly realigned with this felt understanding. It ﬂows and vibrates with natural ease and transparency and reﬂects and expresses the joy and relaxation that is its source and substance.
Ellen met her spiritual teacher Francis Lucille 15 years ago and studied with him for many years before beginning to teach. She is a licensed transpersonal psychotherapist with a background in movement, dance and somatic therapies.
