Being Real: Finding Yourself in Your Body

 Presented by Amanda Lowe, Ph.D.
Date: Sunday November 17, 1;30pm-3:00pm
Cost: $15
Location: Building 1, 209 Commercial Avenue, Aspinwall, PA 15215

We want to be who we really are, but how do we know who that is? It’s often a lot more difficult than it seems to discern our true capabilities and desires. When we are faced with significant choices, how can we tell which path is the authentic one? Almost everyone has experienced a time when they knew in their bones that some decision they were about to take was truly right or wrong. What if we could expand our ability to know what is right and wrong for us into every moment of our day’s lives? The good news is that our bodies know who we are. We can learn to listen to that knowing, inner wisdom through paying attention to the way our bodies feel.  All it takes is attention, practice, and knowing what to look for in our bodily feelings.

In this experiential workshop, we’ll learn to recognize the signpost of bodily feeling that tell us when we are, and are not, on the right path.  We’ll begin with a guided meditation to ground ourselves in our bodies and we will engage in a structured exploration clarifying what it really means to “be real,” and describing the visceral, lived experience of what it feels like, how we can tell when we’re off the authentic path, and how to find our way back to ourselves when we have wandered away.
