feel.focus.flow.immersion



By demystifying Yoga philosophy and adopting a somatic, interoceptive approach to our bodies, Immersion is an (un)training that empowers you with practices plus emotional and nervous system education to restore your wild, human, natural state of being. 

When you hear the word ‘wild’; what do you imagine?


Do you imagine aggressiveness, unruliness and ‘uncivilized’ behavior? Do you consider the wildness of a flower, the meandering stream and a gentle breeze? We are being called to step more fully into the wildness of our human nature, not to destroy, but to create new ways of interacting with each other and the world around us. So many of our natural instincts and body-mind functions have been either shut down or relegated to operate subconsciously; this is hindering our evolution as a species and is causing the destruction of the planet.


Yoga is often translated to mean ‘to yoke’ or ‘union’; in Sanskrit, the word ‘yoga’ is used to signify any form of connection.

Yoga is both a state of connection and a body of philosophy and practices that allow us to connect to everything in nature, including our natural Self, the part of us that is Nature itself.

Conscious connection to anything allows us to feel and create intimacy with that thing, person, or experience. This experience of connection is the state of Yoga; an immersive, embodied, sensory experience. When we use Yoga as a way to restore our connection to our natural state, the natural world, we prioritize sustainability, longevity and collective evolution.

Commitment


Although the practices are meant to be thread throughout your daily experiences, there is a profound commitment being made when embarking upon this work. Immersion isn’t something you can cram into a few hours once a week and call it good. Readings, videos and practices are offered in an intentional way throughout the season to provide you with scaffolding as you re-pattern your habits, your neurobiology and your life.

Expect to devote an hour, or four 20-30 minute chunks, of your day to the material you engage with in addition to our weekly 2 hour call. If that stresses you out, don’t worry, helping you work with fitting it in is part of our curriculum. Much of what we do in Immersion is unlearning old ways of doing things.

This includes how we learn, how we engage with our bodies, the environment we occupy and the roles we play within a group; as we do this you may feel uncomfortable.

Change is scary, especially on the subconscious, nervous system level we work with in Immersion. The brain can’t differentiate between ‘ego’ death and physical body death, so our nervous system often reacts to change as if physical death might occur. This is not comfortable, but you will be getting the tools you need to navigate the discomfort of change and transformation as we go.

Engaging within the online group is also a commitment you make when signing on for the season. We can go faster and farther together than we can go alone; because of this, existing in community is a big part of what we practice in feel.focus.flow.

Daily check-ins with the group help to connect with one another in community and strengthen our capacity. By sharing our insights, questions and energy in the group we become permission givers for one another, expand our capacity for vulnerability in relationships and learn to collaborate with others to reach a mutual goal. 


"Resilience is both intrinsic and learned, a combination of nature (what you’re born with) and nurture (the circumstances you encounter, especially as you grow up). Second, resilience manifests both individually and collectively. Sometimes it does take the form of a personal, individual act. Often, however, resilience is expressed communally by a group, a family, an organization, or a culture."

~Resmaa Menakem, MSW, LICSW. My Grandmother's Hands  


​Resilience is created organically within our small group setting. When we share and listen with others we share our humanity, emotions and unspoken thoughts. There can be a lot of shame around not ‘transcending’ humanity, when you share your journey with others, you begin to realize you’re ‘normal’; that feels good. Once we know it’s ‘normal’ to want to fight, run away or pretend nothing is going on we can get curious about the physiology of it all so we can choose the course of action that is the ‘right’ one for us individually and collectively. It’s permission giving.
