Location: Samsø, Denmark
Instructor: Satu Tuomela, Birgitte Gorm Hansen, Sam Belyea
About the event
We are proud to announce our new teacher training module at Authentic Flow Tribe called AWAKE!
This module is a collaboration between two world renown senior teachers Satu Tuomela and Birgitte Gorm Hansen, and a newcomer in our trainings, amazingly talented Sam Belyea.
This module brings together Embodied consciousness practices (like Tantrik meditation), sound, Somatic Earthing and other Somatic modalities, Open Flow yoga, Big Mind practices, psychotherapy and so much more.
This will be a space supporting a safe and nurturing deep dive into your own awakened self as a Human, a yoga teacher and a practitioner, and also give tools to share via your own offerings in the world.
Can be taken as a full 100h TT module or more as a retreat (60h).
“We become awake to how the whole renews itself in this moment through our movement”
Mind expresses itself not only through thoughts but through the movements of body, our senses, our rhythms, our exploration in the world. When there is a recognition of non dualism between mind and body, do we become Awakened?
What does it mean to be Awake? To be awake for it all. Perhaps, it’s not an experience that is in anyway higher but in all the ways here. The realest experience of Here.
Through Embodied consciousness practices (like Tantrik meditation), sound, Somatic Earthing and other Somatic modalities, in the mornings, Satu will guide and support your Awakening to your Natural Body- mentally calm, emotionally steady and physically grounded being. You will be gifted with a lot of self exploratory tools and deep revelations on what it really means to go and flow with nature, not against it.
After practice, we share together our experiences, if it is calling us, to unpack and help our instinctual and deeply felt experience be communicated to others (as that is what we do as teachers).
With Sam, we will explore tools from Somatic Earthing, Somatic stress release etc. to get into some of the practices in a more interactive way. In the afternoon, Birgitte will facilitate the group using the Big Mind process, Open Flow Yoga and seated meditation.
The Big Mind process is inspired by both Zen and psychotherapy and is facilitated as a group dialogue. This is a space in which the group can safely explore the challenges that come up when we embody the role of the yoga teacher.
This deep, collective self-inquiry invites us to compassionately embrace our own shadows as well as our hidden light by recovering the wisdom hidden in both. The second part of the afternoon session will embody the teaching of the day with a gentle and nourishing practice of Open Flow yoga closing in a seated meditation.
About the location
We had the pleasure of having our HEART module here in 2019. Mellem-rummet, Samsø, Denmark, is an amazing quiet oasis very close to the sea with a lot of open space and nature around. Truly magical! The Shala is also one of the most beautiful shalas we have ever practiced in.
Getting there is EASY! So don’t be discouraged by, that you take first a train from Copenhagen (only 90min) and a boat (only a bit over an hour) to the island. We all found it very easy and with no cueing and such. Very delightful experience! We do suggest that you would arrive one day before to enjoy Copenhagen, it is a wonderful city!
