Being in transition can feel like being alone in the middle of a river, the constant movement exhausting, the far side hard to see. We know that in time, we'll reach the other bank, root ourselves in new ground, make a new wholeness. But in the meantime, it's good to have helping hands and places of rest to strengthen — and sweeten — the way.
Honey in the River is a playful, soulful workshop for meeting life changes and transitions with joy, humor, and new perspective. Over the course of three hours, father-daughter team Josh & Simka Senyak will guide you through a series of creative body- and soul-grounded practices, exercises, and experiments to explore where you've been, where you're going next, and how to sustain yourself through the intensity of it all.
Honey in the River will offer you a chance to:
- bring your body and mind into a sense of safety and stillness
- define the big questions you're sitting with, without pressure to come up with the answers
- uncover a council of guides, heroes, teachers and elders who can bring you support
- discover old, half-buried "rules of behavior" in your life and transform them into allies
- learn techniques for recognizing and harmonizing conflicting parts of your soul
- nourish yourself on the next steps of your path
You WON'T be asked to:
- share anything you don't want to
- be part of others' processes
- simplify, bypass, or reduce complex experience
- take any of it too seriously.
If you're experiencing both grief and hope as you work to reconcile your experience of the past with your vision for the future...
If you're craving new, creative and inspirational ways into the depths & truths inside you...
Then this workshop is probably for you.
Let's make our way through the unknown with renewed clarity, joy, and courage.
Honey in the River will take place online on Sunday, May 22nd, from 10am - 1pm PST / 7 - 10pm CET. Registration information here.
Since this is a new workshop, we're excited to offer it at a steep discount for its maiden voyage! Cost: $30 / €30 — PLUS — a sincere request that you fill out an evaluation questionnaire (frankly and anonymously) when the workshop is complete, to help us shape future editions.
