In the age of COVID and "social distancing", we are now more than ever in search of deep, human connection. In this dynamic new workshop format, Esalen is combining the digital, at-home retreat with the rich, incomparable experience of being at Esalen in person. In this versatile new experience, you will have interactive digital class time with Deborah Eden Tull, who will be teaching virtually from her home on the East Coast. You will be held lovingly as an in-person group in our beautiful classroom space by one of Eden's apprentices, and guided in connection with your sister students, and there is ample structured time to soak in the tubs, receive a massage, and attend one of our Open Classes.
Join us for an experiential training in more compassionate, wise, and embodied ways of being that will transform how you experience your life, family and work. What if attunement, relational intelligence, intuition and deep listening are the most essential qualities for leadership in today’s world? Discover how dramatically women can accelerate and deepen each other’s growth – while creating the conditions for this flourishing ongoing, in your own life.
In this time when everything is in flux, we are all called into leadership, each in our own way, and to act on behalf of what we love and the future we desire.
But we’ve inherited unconscious biases, that presume hierarchy in lieu of cooperation. These biases tend to value productivity over restoration, thinking over other forms of knowing and relating, and speed over slowing down. We can restore wholeness within ourselves and our world by reuniting the yin and yang, the receptive and expressive aspects of our nature, the lunar and solar, the deep elemental feminine and sacred masculine. This rebalancing is imperative for collective transformation.
This workshop includes meditation, relational mindfulness, conscious movement and dance, ritual, writing, and deep time in nature. The deep feminine does not refer to a gender archetype or support gender-binary perception. Rather, it refers to the receptive, and yin, rather than active and yang aspect of nature. These vital energies naturally co-exist in dynamic balance together.
This workshop is for women of all ages, colors, backgrounds and disciplines, at all phases of their life’s journey, who identify as female or as non-binary, including a wide realm of gender expression.
