Are there obstacles keeping you from living your full potential?

There are events that happen in our lives that emotionally disrupt our health.  When you are stressed, anxious, or upset, your body reacts in a way that might tell you that something isn’t right.  These unattended emotions can move deeper into the body, cause illness and keep you from living to your fullest potential.

In this series, you will learn practices to connect with your emotional body, release constrictions, and heal unattended parts of yourself.

Naka-Ima - Inside of Now

December 8-10, Sebastopol, CA.

Contact me or visit: nakaimaca@wordpress.com

At Naka-Ima you begin to perceive the ways you’ve been limiting yourself. You learn to recognize the attachments you’ve created which undermine your vision, your reality, your life. You develop the facility to let go of ideas and emotions which separate you from yourself and others. You face where you’ve been stuck, where you’ve been reluctant or unable to change. With this awareness you make choices and take actions that are aligned with your purest intentions.

During the week-end you establish a way of relating with others that encourages a mutual unfolding of your essential selves. You open to the possibility of love which is contained in a vessel of honesty and clarity; to truth which is tempered with an energy of caring and awareness toward others that is filled with delight in giving. You remember who you are without the protection that you began building so many years ago.

Michelle has produced Naka-Ima for over 10 years.          

Cost: Sliding scale $415-$715
