A weekend to quieten the mind and come back to the body
Open Ground workshops offer an opportunity to …
- cultivate a close connection to the earth and the radiant energies of loving kindness
- befriend your body and unpattern tension and anxiety
- touch the deeper places where you are well supported and nourished
- quieten the mind and come back into the body
We will be exploring:
- Kum Nye, a Tibetan Buddhist slow-moving meditation
- Somatic Meditations to take us deeply into the body
- A guided Loving-Kindness meditation to meet and open our heart
- Somatic Movement Exercises to release tension and holding patterns so that pain can dissolve and freedom of movement can be enhanced
- Creative Expression using pastels, crayons, pens, etc to deepen and crystallise your experiences – and promote further insight and integration after the retreat.
This weekend is a taste of the style and focus of the Open Ground Teacher Training programs, Workshops and Retreats that are planned for 2020.
This is a great weekend to de-stress and relax. When the fear of space is overcome, it can become your greatest friend.
Taste for yourself the richness of Buddhist teachings and Somatic explorations in the beautiful West Coast town of Raglan.

I found it absolutely fascinating to learn how and why the body works as it does. Dyana related each and every aspect we covered right from the cells to how they relate to the practice of yoga. This knowledge will definitely make me a better teacher, and there are many ways that I will be able to integrate it into my teaching.
I found Dyana really inspirational. – Juliet Slovgrove
