8:30 Breakfast

9:30 PRESENTATION—EmPowerFlow Yoga with Eleanora Liptonyoga.png

EmPowerFlow Yoga is the leading edge blending Energy Principles of Polarity Therapy with Hatha Yoga.  For years, I called this approach Intuitive Yoga.  Now, decades later, I see a shift in the process.  The process of EmPowerFlow.  Meaning, the more grounded in our body, the more empowered we feel.  The more empowered, the more ease in moving, balancing, stretching and stabilizing.  The whole body becomes stronger and the mind becomes quieter.  This quiet is the profound stillness yogis have pursued for thousands of years.  A deeper self listening naturally arises.   EmPowerFlow, a process of building on our strength, discovering how to release blockages, soreness, tightness is, actually, a pathway to Intuitive Yoga development. The workshop will include poses on the mat and in chairs.

14.00 PRESENTATION-ASTROLOGY AND POLARITY CONCEPTS with Liz Ferrara PTP, BCPP, BCST, RPEPicture2.png

In this workshop I will relate solar and lunation cycles and astrological archetypes and aspects, to Polarity concepts. This will be a conceptualization of the Sun as Source and our eternal and evolutionary process; the Moon as the individuated, personal life on Earth and as a reflection of the larger journey; and how these conceptualizations can inform our work. I hope to also include some ideas around astrological archetypes and certainly astrological aspects as sacred geometry.

16:00 PRESENTATION—BEYOND A CLOCKWORK UNIVERSE -  a fresh look at the therapist/client journey

with Phil Young PTP 

Most current conceptions of the interactions between therapist and client are rooted in the old mechanical models of what can be called the ‘Clockwork Universe.’. However, what is less understood is that life energy also governs the interaction of the client and therapist at a relational level. When viewed from an energetic perspective the therapist and client form a larger conjoint energetic entity, a powerful dyad which behaves as a complex adaptive system.
