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.

Forest Bathing – Stockholm

Forest Bathing

Stockholm

This workshop will include outdoor nature connection experiences in a forest close to the venue as well as indoor sessions.

Nature acts as a mirror to reflect back our inner stillness. Spending time together in the forest allows us to receive the deep replenishment that nature offers when we are connected and receptive. It can gently and powerfully support us in opening to all that is within us.

Together we 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.

Nature will be the container that supports and holds this process of softening, opening and risking more of who we are being seen and shared.

For anyone who wants to be in a space of authentic truth and expression, where all of who you are is accepted and received.

This two-day workshop will have an emphasis on simple nature connection activities based on Shinrin Yoku (Forest Bathing), which are therapeutic and restorative on many levels. They relax our nervous system, reconnect us to our centre & support our overall sense of wellness and vitality. The indoor sessions will include inner meditative processes, supportive bodywork to help relax & let go, 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.

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.

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.

VENUE: The workshop is being held in a beautiful venue called Elemental Retreats Sweden, 20 mins drive North of Stockholm and 25mins from Arlanda Airport.

Reconnection – Sussex

Reconnection

Sussex

A fun & inspiring day of authenticity, openness and connection.

We grow up learning to protect ourselves from pain and hurt. This may have been necessary, but the protection ultimately becomes restrictive and imprisoning. In this workshop we can put the protections down and gently connect with our vulnerability, openness and truth. This is very freeing, and our vulnerability opens us into a much deeper dimension of our being, our inner essence and power, and the true expression of who we are.

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.

We will support each other in letting go of some of the limiting and contracted ways of being & living, which keep us feeling stuck and less than our full potential.

And through this we will explore the choice we always have, to either go into habitual reactions and patterns of behaviour that provide comfort and protection but keep us feeling separate and closed, or to surrender and let go, allowing the barriers to fall away.

The workshop will include gentle but powerful meditative inner reflective processes, some supportive bodywork to help relax & let go, 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.

“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!
