Reconnection Workshops

These workshops are about who we are in our innermost essence, the flame of life within us – a safe space where we can be our authentic selves, without the protections and masks. They are a place of growth and expansion, supporting you in letting go of the barriers that limit and restrict who you really are. They offer us the chance to go beyond the experience of ‘survival’, which is about separation and struggle, and instead to deepen into your inner being and allow your life to be guided from that place.

They take the form of sharing, meditation, and various embodied practices that allow gentle opening and releasing at a somatic level, as well as nature connection and some inner enquiry work.

I also run Forest Bathing (Shinrin Yoku) sessions and occasional Family Constellation workshops.

Reconnection workshops at the Embodiment Festival, Mundekulla

Embodiment Festival, Mundekulla

Långasjö – Sweden

“A FESTIVAL FILLED WITH MOVEMENT, PLAY, WISDOM, NATURE, ART & SOUND”

 “We will bring our senses into dance, music, yoga, meditation, acrobatics, lectures, arts and much more – celebrate, play, learn and connect.

All will take place in the idyllic surroundings of Mundekulla´s forest, beautiful buildings, lush greens and community.”

I will be offering a short form of the Reconnection workshops at this wholistic festival. The workshops will explore the possibility of moving from a state of separation, survival and struggle into trust, connection and flow. This comes when we allow ourselves to be vulnerable rather than protected. And vulnerability is the opening into our inner being and reconnects us to each other, also enabling more freedom and space to be ourselves.

We will explore how we can stay in our familiar patterns that provide comfort and protection but keep us feeling separate and closed up, or surrender and let go, allowing the barriers to naturally fall away.

This will be a time spent together where we don’t need to do anything, be anything, prove anything, fit in, please others, be good enough, etc or make any effort in order to be loved and accepted. It is a glimpse of going beyond the experience of separation and survival (i.e., the world of competition, struggle etc) into connection, union and a remembering of our innate perfection and wholeness.

When we come together and have the support from others we can find the courage to drop the old patterns, the negative thoughts, doubts and insecurities, as none of these factors are who we really are. We are so much more, as behind the illusion of struggle and separation we are really all one. As each of us takes a step into openness and truth, we can then experience the support from others who want us to be free to be ourselves fully, as this is what we all want in our deepest being. This is the uplifting energy that emerges in the workshop that makes taking these steps feel natural and easy.

Forest Bathing sessions at the Ecstatica Festival, Ängsbacka

Ecstatica Festival, Ängsbacka

Molkom – Sweden

“A 5-day immersive festival, Ecstatica is a celebration that speaks to the universal human desire for authenticity, connection, and personal growth. Ecstatica transcends geographic borders and transcends cultural boundaries. Whether you’re a seasoned explorer of consciousness or stepping onto this path for the first time, you are welcome here. Together, we embark on a journey of self-discovery, transformation, and the celebration of life’s extraordinary beauty.”

“Join us in celebrating life, love, community, and our profound connection with nature.

Embrace the unknown, embrace love, and seize every moment to live life to its fullest.”

I will be offering Forest Bathing Nature Connection sessions every morning during the festival, before breakfast, as well as sessions during the day.

Forest Bathing is a simple, fun & engaging way of connecting more deeply with nature and with ourselves.

By wandering in the forest or nature setting with curiosity, in a state of openness and being tuned into the environment, our nervous system starts to relax and we can feel more present and settled. Nature is able to reflect back our own inner stillness, which is always there beneath the surface turbulence and noise.

Studies have shown that Forest Bathing helps to reduce stress, worry, anxiety & depression and has many other mental health and general health benefits.

Some of the other recorded benefits of Forest Bathing include increased energy levels, improved immune system, deeper quality of sleep & enhanced attentiveness. Results have shown that it can lower your blood pressure and help you recover from illness and trauma more quickly.

Forest Bathing Morning – Sussex

Forest Bathing Morning

Sussex

A very relaxing couple of hours. I was able to let go of some of the concerns of my life and enter into a magical, peaceful inner space feeling connected with nature.”   

Start the new year with this simple but beautiful nature immersion work. Based on the Japanese tradition of Shinrin Yoku (Forest Bathing), we will participate in several guided nature connection exercises that open us to the deep replenishment that nature can offer us when we drop into stillness and are fully receptive. This is therapeutic and restorative on many levels, it relaxes our nervous system, reconnects us to our centre & supports our overall sense of wellness and vitality.

I spend plenty of time in nature but this was a first; to be guided and held so that I experienced sounds and sensations in a new way. I loved sitting still and watching the butterflies dancing, and watching the woodpeckers coming and going and playing through the trees. 

It feels like this is so needed in the fast-paced world we live in. I think doing this as a group is what makes it special, you can hear other people’s perspectives and share something that would never normally happen in daily life. 

Anita – Healer

“I found the session gentle and nourishing – a real opportunity to slow down, and take note and feel part of the natural environment. The facilitating was well-paced, welcoming and respectful to participants and nature. Thank you. I would definitely recommend it.”

Johanna 

I really enjoyed this morning’s nature walk with Mark. Being in the woods is a pleasure in itself but Mark’s simple suggestions really brought, a depth to the experience.  A lovely process of building a deeper connection with nature. The notion of being in relationship with the woods enriched the forest bathing experience.  

Stephen   –  Journalist

“I loved Forest bathing with Mark. Such a beautifully held space in an amazing bit of nature. I felt my body really relax into the experience – where I was able to listen and connect into a deeper part of me. Thank you and see you again soon ”

Angela – Stylist

“It was a walk in a park, but it also wasn’t – I slowed down, I noticed, I felt, I saw, heard, smelled, touched. I actually was there not only in my body as I tend to do, but in my Being. 
Mark does it gently and steadily; I like his way of guiding. 
Now I’m just a little more “there” when I am surrounded by nature because I was reminded of how to Be with it, respectfully. Thank you Mark.”

Reconnection – Stockholm

Reconnection

Stockholm

This two-day workshop offers a unique space of openness and freedom, in which we are encouraged and supported to be all that we really are.
We will let go of limited and contracted ways of being & living and gently open into our vulnerability, which reconnects us to our centre and a place of knowing and truth within.
These two days can either be experienced as a complete journey together (a two-day workshop where the second day will deepen and enrich all that we will have covered on the first) or you may attend just one of the days, Saturday or Sunday if you can’t make both, as each one will also be beneficial in it’s own right.

Both days will include meditative inner reflective processes, some supportive & nourishing bodywork as well as plenty of time and opportunity for sharing and discussion in pairs and in small groups, which enables the deeper connection to happen within the group as a whole.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              These two days can either be experienced as a complete journey together (a two-day workshop where the second day will deepen and enrich all that we will have covered on the first) or you may attend just one of the days, as each day will also be beneficial in its own right.

“I loved this workshop! Thank you Mark for bringing it here! Clean and simple, tender and kind, and ruthlessly authentic, a space of safety and trust that offers the opportunity for each and every emotion/block/fear/”resistance”/barrier/”issue” to come up and out and be met so that it can melt and be integrated at its own perfect pace. He will not let anything untrue pass unchallenged and he will be open to and unshaken by all that you bring. This is the place to take a step further with the help of a safe group of friends. I love that Mark comes from trust in the oneness of us all and at the same time carries a great therapeutic toolbox making it feel light and effortless. Loved the bioenergetics. And so many other things…”

Julia  – Therapist & mother

“Mark is brilliant at creating a safe space for you to be yourself and to heal. He leads with both wisdom and clarity, and a bonus is his great sense of humour. He is kind and empathic and I really appreciated the consideration and respect he showed me and the other members of the group. He made me feel empowered and worthy, seen and listened to. I´m so grateful for having found this workshop on my journey home to myself. I will absolutely come back.”

Allison  

Wow, I got the opportunity to experience a Reconnection day in rural Portugal, and it was so valuable! Mark tuned into the group, adapted the process to the needs and flow of the day and was sensitive to each person’s journey. Thank you!

Sophie – Urban Planner

 

 

“Mark is great at facilitating and gently guiding the changes that are difficult to make alone. I found it a very worthwhile, valuable opportunity in a lovely supportive group.”

Patricia 

“I highly recommend the Reconnection workshops with Mark. He has a unique way of leading a workshop of personal development. During these two days, the majority of the participants took huge steps forward, myself included. You can feel that Mark genuinely cares for each one of the participants. He uses different perspectives during the workshop as theoretical, physical, psychological, and spiritual; so all parts of you can follow. He creates a safe environment where he includes everyone. He encourages you to take steps forward in your development and invites the whole group to support you. During this time I felt I could open up to my vulnerability and I dared to meet my fear and I released some old protections that hold me back. I’m so thankful that I went to this workshop and if I have the opportunity I want to continue to work with Mark, because his methods really work. “

Carole 

“Mark holds such a deep clear space. He sees and feels deeply on so many seen and unseen levels.

I feel blown away by his sensitive perception and bold holding of the space and people within it.
I trust him implicitly and highly recommend this work.”
Sarah – Artist

I find these reconnection days that Mark holds massively rewarding. I have been to a few, and each time I have met new insights, valuable learning and authentic connections to myself and other humans! I’m very touched by the depth, safelty and honesty that Mark’s way of holding and listening brings.”

Sophia – Musician

Excellent workshop Family constellations! I am now reading more about it and planning to attend the next workshop. Mark is offering a patient, caring knowledgeable, and safe environment. thank you!

Austeja – Researcher

Family Constellations and Reconnection is hugely beneficial to anyone who wants to delve into a deeper sense of themselves and those around us. I just spent a day with Mark and others at a Familly Constellations day and found Mark to be sensitive to my curiosity around the subject. No issue or feeling is too small, no emotion is left unaddressed and one feels very safe in the hands of his guidance. An amazing day leaving many feelings opened up and questioned. Lovely bunch of people too!

Christopher – Business Advisor

“A profoundly moving & nurturing day spent sharing & deepening our connections with ourselves & others in a safe, loving space. Mark’s insight & guidance always communicated with deep sensitivity & clarity.”

Chrissy – Clothes designer

  

“I have known Mark for a few years now, and have been doing reconnection with him for the last 2 or 3 times. He brings humanity to the group, a very rare quality to show these days. I find him tremendously insightful in he’s interventions. Very creative, not afraid to take chances, and steer the vessel in any direction that he intuitively knows. All this in a very held space, another rare quality. Always available after, to keep holding whatever came up to the participants. I find he’s work pioneering and so much needed.”

Antonio – Gardener & decorator 

  

“I felt blessed to be part of one of the most beautiful workshops I have ever attended. I felt safe and free to dive deep into my inner, most true self. The experience of seeing what I have seen inside me, it is priceless, the feeling of love and support I have received from the members of the group were deeply touching. I Loved every moment of it, thank you everyone for being so open and honest and for allowing me to be part of this amazing morning together”

Sylvia  –  Reiki Healer

“Mark has a rare and profound combination of joining the spiritual and the human which I find rare. Down to earth, human and normal, and at the same time spiritually profound and deep. His workshop/retreat was very powerful and cut to the core of what human connection is about. His experience and sensitivity is evident when holding the space and it felt safe and very nurturing to unravel what was inside of me that’s not usually something I dare to bring to the surface. Thank you Mark!”

Stefan  

Mark holds a unique safe space that invites total honesty into the room, and in doing so brings insight to the blind spots and that powerfully creative unconscious that has us in challenging dynamics. He is great at facilitating the unpicking of the masterful masks…and freeing up a whole more informed and authentic way to be yourself.”

Serena – Art Therapist

“I would wholeheartedly recommend Reconnection, I have attended several intensive courses/workshops that Mark has held, now also a couple online too, and he is very skilled at holding a space where you really feel it is a safe space, whether you just sit and be, or listen to others, or share your innermost feelings, he holds the space with gentleness and compassion and non-judgment and is great at shining a light on the deeper truths within those feelings we may dare to share, often we have constructed so many protections and armour around ourselves over our lifetime to keep us safe and hold so tightly to our conditioned behaviour ,reactions and beliefs etc that we can’t see our own truth or who we really are, If we want to go there Mark is excellent at facilitating us in breaking free from our own internal prisons to discover our true authenticity within and live from that place.”

David – Software Analyst

Mark’s gentle guidance into opening our stories and seeing new angles through the constellation is priceless. It’s very nourishing to do your own one or be part of someone else’s, even be observing what is unraveling before your eyes as observer. I’ve been to few and looking forward to more.”

Hannah

Mark holds space and guides participants through the constellation process very skilfully. His expertise and experience is self-evident in creating a safe container for full authentic expression and giving clear guidance for participants to discover their own ‘Ahah!’ moments – embodied unravellings of conscious and unconscious cruxes. I felt empowered and excited by the possibilities the work opened up for me regarding my relationships and perceptions of various situations in my life. I unreservedly recommend Mark’s work.

Annie – Yoga teacher and Somatic Coach.

Beautiful, deeply touching, an eye opener into my life and who I truly am. I felt safe, I felt supported throughout the workshop and most of all I felt loved and connected to other amazing human beings who, like me, found the courage to open up and be ourselves 💗I loved every moment of it! Thanks to Mark and everyone else who was there at the workshop yesterday and made the day so very special!
