I have had a consistent body-based practice for fifteen years - a mixture of dance, somatics, dance therapy and authentic movement. While in various capacities meditation has been present in my practice and studies, this retreat would be a new endeavor, a new window from which to view my experience.
I was born in Mexico City and have lived here since. My family is originally from Juchitán, Oaxaca. My studies began with dance, coreography and history and I have created art and performance in this capacity over the last twelve years. I also trained to be a Somatics Educator, Dance Therapist and to teach and share the practice of Contact Improvisation. in Mexico. Four years ago I began formation in Authentic Movement.
My goal is to attend a week-long meditation retreat at Casa Werma in Pátzcuaro, México led by Sandra Ladley - to explore and deepen my relationship with meditation and Shambhala's teachings in particular.
Description of the event from Casa Werma's website: "This retreat is for women to come together in a beautiful setting surrounded by lush gardens to experience deep meditation practice, sacred community and creative expression. We will have the opportunity to connect deeply with ourselves with the aspiration to return home refreshed with the strength, passion and personal alignment to meet these challenging times with an open heart and mind."
