Maya Ward works to foster ethical connection to place grounded in embodied, intuitive and intellectual understanding of interdependency. Her PhD in Creative Writing explored the ecological and evolutionary underpinning to archetypal experience, referencing neuroscience, psychology and shamanistic metaphysics.
She is passionate about deepening the connections between body, ecology and culture through her teaching methods which incorporate writing and somatic practices.
In this retreat Maya will facilitate exploring the role of embodiment in ecological awareness, personal and social transformation, and the role of trauma in inhibiting body awareness.

Ange will be teaching the Yin Yoga component on this Retreat. Yin yoga is a slow, meditative practice, where postures are often held for prolonged periods of time, giving us an opportunity to explore our internal state, to work through obstructions and blockages held in our fascia where our rich meridian body is found and to release from the patterns of our past.
It is an opportunity to tap into our often dormant, creative self.
