Notes About This Event

When Fred found himself on the unwanted journey with grief after the deaths of two of his children, he discovered much material dealing with grief on the emotional, mental and even spritiual level of our lives, but very little dealing with the effect that grief has on our physical bodies. 

Fred was a mover from childhood, whether on the basketball court, track & field, tennis courts or golf courses.  But there came a time when his hip and knees prevented him from participating in those life long activites.  His sister in law introduced him to a movement form...Nia.  He immediately discoverd a workout that his body enjoyed, and without pain.  His Nia practice also encouraged him to bring a greater awareness to the sensation of the movement in his body.  Nia is also a somatic practice, blending body, mind, emotions, and ones spirit.  Over time, it allowed Fred to bring a much greater awareness to his journey with grief.  Discovering the sensation of grief not only emotionally, but physically.  And how the choices that he made shifted that sensation, transforming his realtionship with grief, emotionally, mentally, physically and with his spirit.

In this 3 hour workshop, Fred will share his journey of moving, living and transforming with grief and will invite you to explore and choose MOVEMENT to cope, to heal, to live, to transform your journey with loss, whether that be the loss of a job, a dream, a friend, or a love, to a deeper, moving, loving, living you!!!
