Autumn Trees and Autumn Seas
October 27th - 28th 2018
Including Sumarah Meditation
Nourished by the wisdom and the beauty of the autumnal trees, surrendering to the earth, letting our bones breathe. Enlivened by the rhythm of the tides and the changing skies. Finding the 'still point of the turning world' (T. S. Eliot). Opening to the potential for transformation.
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 26th 6-8pm Charmouth Village Hall, Wesley Close. 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.
