The Art of Being: Love in the Afternoon - 42 Acres

The Art of Being: Love in the Afternoon

Sun 16th December 2018 —
1.45PM TO 5.15PM

A warm winter workshop of nourishing connection.

Think you’re too stressed to come? Not in the right state of mind? Already stretched too thinly? So many things to do? How about a little tender time-out?

Love in the Afternoon invites you into nurturing encounters with your fellow human beings. Here you can let go into an ambience of affection and love, relax if you wish into skin-on-skin contact with other cuddly creatures, and above all nourish those very human aspects of yourself that you may not be looking after, that can get easily neglected or compromised in all the pre-Christmas to-do.

If you feel that you are the one who is holding it all together, this can be where you allow yourself to be vulnerable, even overwhelmed. In fact, being allowed is the essence of this afternoon workshop. Come home into all that you are feeling. Reconnect with what is really going on deep down inside you. Bathe in the love that surrounds you.

There is nothing for you to do but to follow the wisdom of your body. As always, Alan will gently guide you in finding the connection with others that is just right for you. Say hello to your longing and discover how intimacy doesn’t require you to be in any particular mood. All it takes is your willingness to be your real self with another person. So you may find yourself in sweet stillness with another. Perhaps you are feeling quite heavy and all you want is to be deeply held? Or you need to get out of your mind into playful, sensual connection?

No matter whether you are feeling thin-skinned, silly or sexy, this Art of Being experience can open you to finding and expressing what it is that you need here and now to give yourself more of. So come and join us for an afternoon of love!
