We live in a time when consciously living in our bodies is more important than ever. How else can we know who we are and what we stand for? How else can we contrast another’s point of view with our own? Can we recognize when we relate to others from love, attraction & empathy or from fear, rejection & judgment?
In this 2 hour participatory & experiential workshop, we will explore the many reasons to add our sense of smell to our repository of conscious embodiment tools. We will dive deeply into our 5 senses & notice how they seamlessly cross-pollinate & support each other. We will courageously identify what we love to smell while pioneering a new personal new language to describe this. We will explore the usefulness of memory and feeling in the experience of scent. Finally, we will hone our intentionality to invite scent into our lives. We will end with a fun exercise of using our beginner’s smell mind.
