About The Program

The Nature of Eros with Ian MacKenzie and Asha Mærie

THE NATURE OF EROS is an immersive workshop designed to help participants explore profound questions related to love and desire. How can we embody and express this energy in authentic and meaningful ways? What are the barriers and limitations that prevent us from fully embracing Eros? How can we channel this powerful force towards creating positive change in our personal lives and communities?

Delve deep into the concept of Eros as the primary life force that permeates the natural world. Embody this energy and access its healing power to transmute patterns from the past and cultivate a future with more love and ability to source our choices from our truest authentic selves.

Led by acclaimed filmmaker Ian MacKenzie (known for his work on “The Village of Lovers”) and Asha Marie, (Counsellor, Embodiment Guide and founder of Mama's Movement), participants will engage in deep listening, authentic sharing, and empathetic witnessing, fostering a sense of community and shared understanding that will facilitate a transformative and empowering learning experience.

Through somatic play, breathwork, and embodiment practices, we will cultivate a deeper awareness of our own sensual nature in connection with the land and learn how to harness and honor more deeply the current of creation within us.

By attuning to and connecting with THE NATURE OF EROS, we can move at the pace of trust in a way that holds the greatest vision of Life, in service towards a more harmonious and beautiful world. Join us at The Rowe Center for this unique opportunity to embark on a personal and collective journey of self-discovery, transformation, and social change.

Note: This workshop is open to singles and couples.

Participants will be treated to a showing of Ian's film A Village of Lovers.  Enjoy a sneak peak from the trailer below.
