A weekend retreat of Body Love to support women during and after Cancer.
6th & 7th October 2018.
This weekend retreat, is a deep space for nourishment during and after facing cancer and all the challenges it presents.
Michelle Roberton and Jem Ayres are both fully recovered ‘gliders’ (not survivors) of Cancer, and now work with others on their journeys.
Therefore well attuned to the emotions, body trauma and the body detachment Cancer can invoke into our daily life.
The weekend will include:
Gentle yoga specifically tailored for Cancer
Self-care and Body Love techniques
Conscious food choices
Boobie love and sacred heart massage
Space to rest, be held and be heard.
Body Love tools are about developing a connection with your body as a beautiful living thing regardless of your health situation or body image.
We are not taught self-love in this society, we therefore have to take ourselves through a process of self-learning to allow ourselves to love our bodies fully-in all our flaws and beauty.
As Tantra Therapists, Michelle and Jems core teaching is around bringing conscious to our bodies.
During times of crisis in our health we can so easily lose that tender and delicate connection to our bodies, our hearts and our pleasure.
Michelle gently guiding others back to the safety and ease of their own skin. Often when we are confronted with health fears and distress, we see our bodies as unsafe and the “enemy.” She has explored the limitations Cancer can have on our physicality through exploring her own movement limitations and training specifically for a year, in yoga for Cancer. She has also created a “method” which enabled her to restore sensitivity in her new breasts when told by the medical profession that would no longer be possible.
Jem encourages people to be in joy, and that’s what she brings to the weekend with her work on mindset, meditation and belief.
We aim to wrap you up in a sense of being nurtured, nourished and deeply rested.
