Returning to Life—A Core Energetics Weekend

With JoAnn Lovascio and Geoff Fitch

May 27 - 29, 2022

Over and over our work calls us to return to life, to our joy, to our embodiment, and to community. Especially now, after these past two years, we feel a longing to be in our bodies with each other. This weekend workshop will be a deep and powerful opportunity to process these past two years, to open to all we have felt, and to return to our essence, to deeply meet each other, and to be supported by the land.

We will be in retreat on the beautiful grounds of the Whidbey Institute for a three day Core Energetics workshop. In addition to our work together, there will be time for retreat, dancing, laughter, connection, and walking on the land.

We will start at 1 pm on Friday and end at 5:30 pm on Sunday. We expect the workshop to fill, so register soon!

If you have not done so already, contact JoAnn Lovascio for an interview prior to registering.

Core Energetics teaches us how to authentically integrate all of these instruments, and helps remove the internal obstacles that block the expression of your all important essence.

Clients find their way to me when they are ready to break through old, destructive patterns, or ready for a more embodied and integrated expression of their creativity and spiritual life. My bodily presence with its innate and trained intelligence is my instrument. If you bring yourself…
