so we flow… presents: Unlocking The Warrior: A workshop – Saturday 4th August – 2-4pm

What comes to mind when you hear the word ‘Warrior’? Perhaps a vision of a savage barbarian or noble samurai; maybe it’s a fusion of ideas. Either way, we all have a pretty clear view of what we believe that character to be, yet their place in our new world may not be so evident. Where have these roles disappeared to in our evolving technological age? Are they merely resigned to the various arenas of sport fighting or is there more?

It is far too simplistic to identify the warrior’s domain to be that of violence and fail to acknowledge the passion, power and discipline it takes to achieve such status. Humanity has seen many battles and though the incidences of bloodshed have declined; there still lies a place for the fighter in all of us. It is important for us to embrace the hidden qualities that lie within each of us, that we may use them towards the greater good. Should we fail to utilise the weapons of mind, body and soul, in time they become blunt.

The warrior lives at the edge and embraces their vulnerability.

This workshop aims to provide you with movement techniques, breath work and mindfulness practice that you may hone your skills and tackle your foes head on.
