Banyen Talk: Understanding Grief

Join Antonio Sausys, MA, CMT, RYT, author of Yoga for Grief Relief, for an insightful talk at Banyen that will inform your personal relationship with loss, provoke profound inquiry, and offer a road map to understanding grief. Sausys will synthesize his approach to address the multi-dimensionality of being human.

As a nineteen year old, Antonio Sausys was propelled into a profound journey with grief when his mother died, and has dedicated his life to working with grief for over 30 years. As a somatic psychotherapist, Antonio Sausys has supported thousands of people worldwide to integrate mind, body and spirit and more fully embrace life. As a yoga therapist, he develops sadhanas (personal programs) for individuals as well as facilitates group retreats & trainings offering comprehensive teachings to induce self knowledge and personal transformation by addressing the physical and emotional symptoms of grief. This will be an inspirational evening not to be missed.
 
“With compassion and clarity, Antonio Sausys brings dignity to the grieving process as he guides you, step-by-step, through loss to transformation and rebirth."
Anodea Judith

Shaughnessy Heights United Church

This 3 hour workshop at Shaughnessy Heights (33rd & Granville) gives participants deeper insights and an opportunity to experience Antonio Sausys' embodied Yoga for Grief work. The comprehensive practice Antonio has developed transforms grief from a painful experience into a conscious source of self-knowledge and includes a six-part sequence: breathing exercises, body movements, cleansing techniques, relaxation, mental reprogramming and meditation. This introduction will lay the foundation for the personal non-residential retreat that will be offered in Vancouver in November. Please contact Sharon Abbondanza at Inspiring Yoga for Saturday Workshop registration and more information on the retreat.
