Exciting workshops - All you need is love

Here is a flavour of the exciting workshops on offer and the "Networking, Connecting and Dilemma-Solving" Session

Working from the heart
When we open our heart to those in our lives, not only do our “easy” relationships become even more joyful but also our more difficult relationships, whether at work or in our personal lives are totally transformed.

In this workshop, using a range of innovative processes, you will have an opportunity to practise opening your heart, and connecting with others on a deeper level from this open-heartedness. As you open your heart, you will find your judgements of the other and also of yourself, simply melt away. This clears the space to reveal you at your best and for those around you to reap the benefits as you become more fully present to both the other and to yourself.

"When souls really touch it is forever. Then space and time disappear, and all that remains is the consciousness that we are not alone in life." Joan Chittister.

  • Improvise your love life - Getting to love using and learning from comedy improvisation
  • Experience the joy of being totally in the moment
  • Learning to laugh at getting it wrong and moving on
  • Letting go of your agenda
  • Loving the freedom to express yourself

Improvisation is an attitude, a way of behaving that allows one person, or a group of people, to innovate and create instantly by using their own sense of trust, truth, acceptance and creativity. This "pure improvisation" happens when the group connects and ideas and actions flow freely without judgment. Anyone can improvise if they allow themselves to play, have fun, and if they are open to loving themselves, the others and the process. Improvisation IS NOT about being the smartest, being the funniest or being right, and gives us permission to let go of our “need” to be any of those things and simply to be. It is about accessing the creativity that already exists within all of us.

How love can help you learn and change
Many who have written on the meaning of life have said our purpose for being here is to learn and grow. Whether or not you hold that belief, learning and change is fundamental part of life for us all. Whether we are supporting others to learn and make changes or whether we are ourselves wanting to learn and make changes, we know there are times when it can be surprisingly difficult. In this inspiring workshop, you'll gain insights into why we sometimes find it hard to learn , change and follow the “good advice” we know is sensible, and find out how to make learning and change easier.

The session looks at the role of love in learning and change, what can happen when it's missing and helps you discover ways to enhance your ability to help others become more effective learners and to become a more effective learner yourself . You'll also discover ways of understanding and developing love and trust to enhance learning, motivation, and to make permanent positive changes both within yourself and in people you help.

About Donald Lush:
Donald Lush has been teaching, tutoring, advising and guiding adults since 1992.

He has a passion for learning and a special interest in bringing love into learning environments of all kinds. Karen has been practising Biodanza since 2005. She trained to teach Biodanza in London and at the Dorset School of Biodanza, and has found it to be one of the most powerful ways of facilitating change. She brings a powerful transformational approach and her own unique style to her Biodanza teaching.

All you need is love with Biodanza
Biodanza is a powerful body-based coaching and personal development system that draws from dance, movement, complementary therapy, and moving meditation, and uses heart- opening music to provide a nurturing environment that promotes both physical and emotional healing and personal transformation. There are no steps to learn, so it is ideal for participants who want to benefit from dance, and believe “they can’t dance”, as well as those who can and are looking for something more.

Biodanza is where dance meets personal development. It uses a series of exercises which are uplifting, energising or relaxing, and in sequence take participants away from their thinking minds (and any disempowering self talk that resides there) and into experiences of fun,
pleasure and bliss, and other positive states that facilitate sustained well-being and positive change.

Of all the benefits that Biodanza offers, there is none so profound and important as providing a doorway to love. When we love and are loved in return everything is possible, and Biodanza helps us find the key.
