The NON VIOLENT COMMUNICATION (NVC) and BIODANZA RETREAT – DANCING WITH LIFE – is a transformational coaching programme.
Tracy invites you to a week that will support you in letting go, shedding layers and transforming from the inside out!
We meet in a small comfortable hotel, close to the beach on Mount Pelion, in Greece, to dance Biodanza and practice expressing ourselves honestly using Nonviolent Communication. This week is often named Dancing with Life. We reflect, create, let go, relax, heal, restore, learn, play and experience life together – transforming from the inside out!
What will you do?
During morning workshops 9.30am – 1.00pm, we practice honest expression in a supportive environment for learning.
You will work alone, in pairs, small groups and as a whole group.
We cover the foundations of Nonviolent Communication, the work of Dr Marshall Rosenberg and deepen this practice using the dance floor processes (created by Bridgette Belgrave and Gina Lawrie) and various activities too:
- Develop your empathic presence, listening and understanding.
- Bring somatic awareness to your triggers working with self-compassion.
- Communicate with your inner critic.
- Be with conflict using a dialogue process to support you.
- Express yourself honestly without insulting others.
- Face your fears, anger and shame.
- Embrace fierce compassion, mourning, gratitude and celebration.
We dance Biodanza every day.
This bio-centric movement system, created by Rolando Toro Araneda works progressively to support you at a cellular level. Its benefits are scientifically proven through research.
The benefits include:
A reduction in stress levels; regulation of emotion.
Greater confidence and self-expression
Fun, enjoyment, pleasure and bliss
We embodying feelings of wellbeing, strengthening inner resourcefulness; reconnecting with our vital energy for life and celebration.
Afternoons are free for you to explore and enjoy the local area. Outings to places of interest can be organised.
Here are a few comments from previous participants:
“Combining NVC with Biodanza has helped me express myself verbally as well as physically it helped to give me the necessary understanding and empathy to connect with other people. I have more confidence to be more outgoing and assertive in a positive manner” Patrick, Ireland
“Working closely with you, Tracy, throughout the week was a powerful experience. You gently and softly provided the tools that empowered me to open up and unlock the wisdom and knowledge that was always there. I feel I now know and understand (and love) myself more than ever. A real gift. Thank you.”Catherine, UK
Do you want to BE more fully YOU, to let go of layers and that no longer serves you?
Who is this event for?
This event is people who are interested in personal development and their own wellbeing. The programme is in English, (translation into Greek, French and German may be possible. Please contact me for more information about this).
Do you want more joy and peace in your life?
My wish is that you will return home feeling relaxed and rejuvenated, with more understanding of yourself and others; with insight and expanded capacities for mindful relating, self-compassion and gratitude for life.
