Living As a Whole Person - Yoga Meditation and Therapeutic Touch as Helpful Skills

January 19-21, 2018 Friday dinner through Sunday lunch

Living as a Whole Person - Yoga Meditation and Therapeutic Touch as Helpful Skills

Our theme this year is 'Living as a Whole Person' - based on a pamphlet by Dora Kunz (a founder of Pumpkin Hollow and of Therapeutic Touch). We will explore the Yoga of Light: Yoga, Meditation and TT as integral and practical ways of ‘living as a whole person’. Included will be further exploration of last years theme ‘Conscious use of the Aura”.

Meditation: Dora Kunz guidance underlies our practice of meditating together as a group or alone. We will experience meditation as ‘quiet with a sense of flow (light energy and consciousness). Winter's pristine beauty and quietude are powerful energies to affirming meditation as a way of life.
Hatha Yoga and movement: based on Carolyn's lifelong experience as a yoga practitioner/teacher and professional dancer in the ecstatic dance traditions of India and the Middle East. The flow of light energy/consciousness is the foundation of her unique style. Carolyn offers individual attention which supports a person's well-being, - adapting all poses to individual’s needs and physical abilities. Laughter and 'being at ease' are important elements.

We will share Therapeutic Touch sessions. Everyone can participate whether or not they have studied TT.
Everyone will have time alone - deepening their connection to Nature's healing energies of harmony and order.

Through study of Dora Kunz' understanding of the human aura, participants are invited to deepen their perceptions of the human aura and the world around them using the practice of 'aura yoga' through hatha yoga, meditation and Therapeutic Touch.

Carolyn Kay Wheeler RN, RYT, QTTT shares her roots as yogini, dancer and TT practitioner but also her rich experience of 30 plus years in residence in the sanctuary of Pumpkin Hollow.
