Location: Crissy Field East Beach
We are gathering a circle of women (whoever identifies as a woman) to get in touch with and release stagnant emotions that we might be unaware of. We'll hold hands, breath, scream at the ocean, and share smiles and support for one another.
According to the researchers, each emotion has an energetic imprint on our bodies. Emotional memories are stored in our tissues and organs. While having a wide spectrum of emotions is healthy, when these emotions don't find a proper exit, they become detrimental to our emotional and physical wellbeing. Frequently, we don't even notice that have become affected by the consequences of such stagnant emotions. That doesn't mean that they stop affecting us.
The method we are offering is based on several modalities, including:
- Dynamic meditation
- Primal Scream Therapy
- Yogic breathing (pranayama)
