Radical Wholeness Retreat: Govinda Valley, AU

February 26 - March 1

This all-inclusive 4 day retreat will help you to move out of your head and into your life.

Supported by the natural splendor of Govinda valley, this all-inclusive four-day retreat is an immersion in the work of internationally renowned embodiment expert Philip Shepherd. The retreat is not a repeat of the practices of the weekend workshop, but offers an array of new practices, new ways of discovering how the body’s intelligence can illuminate your life. These practices gently, patiently and playfully move you beyond merely “listening to the body” and introduce you to the freedom of uniting with i

ts intelligence. When you inhabit the body in that way, you seamlessly join the world, landing in the intimacy and nourishment of the present.  The skills you develop over these four days will serve you for a lifetime.

Philip Shepherd has gained an international reputation as a teacher whose breadth of vision and original exercises enable people to escape the enclosed chatter of the head, and ground their thinking in the calm, deep-dwelling intelligence of the body.  His workshop provides tools to last a lifetime, even as it gently opens the door to a radical experience of wholeness.

Class size limited to 18.
