Spring into Summer
May 13th - 14th 2017

including Sumarah meditation

As spring moves towards summer we too can embrace a different rhythm in our lives opening to a sense of ease and of hope. Trusting our bodies and our inter-relationship with the natural world as we move among the sea sculpted rocks beneath the magnificent cliffs at Beer Head.

Each day includes indoor and outdoor movement sessions with Helen and Sumarah meditation with Beate Stühm, experiencing how Sumarah relates to and supports this approach to movement practice. Sumarah is a Javanese form of meditation. It means to surrender and is a practice of receiving, accepting and becoming more aware. This leads to a deep relaxation of the body, mind and emotions. The meditation sessions are a time of sitting together and receiving guidance, daily meditation is continued in every day life. No experience of meditation is necessary. Sessions will finish at 7pm.

Beate Stühm has practised Sumarah Meditation since 1987 with Pak Wondo in Java, and Laura Romano in Europe with whom she trained in Sumarah Meditation Guidance (2003-2005). An experienced movement practitioner Beate studied with Anna Halprin and Suprapto Suryodarmo.

Open Sumarah meditation Friday evening May 12th 6-8pm Branscombe Village Hall. Open to all. It is recommended that workshop participants attend. No charge for this evening session. Please call if you are coming.

Price: £100 (£85 concession) 
Location: Branscombe, 2 miles from Beer.
No payment is received for Sumarah guidance, expenses will be covered by the workshop fee.
