Autumn Reflections

October 12th - 13th 2019
Including Sumarah Meditation

A time of settling and of shedding, of falling leaves and autumnal skies. A time of returning to oneself, to body, to breath and to the earth. Moving with rocks and water on the changing shoreline and among autumn trees.

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 is necessary. Sessions finish at 6.30pm.

Open Sumarah meditation Friday October 11th 6-8pm Branscombe Village Hall. Open to all. No charge, donations welcome. It is recommended that workshop participants attend this session. Please call if you are coming.

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.

Price: £110 (£90 concession)
Location: Branscombe, 2 miles from Beer, East Devon.

No payment is received for Sumarah, expenses covered by workshop fee.
