Sunday, December 30th 9am - 12 pm. $40.
What: a workshop part movement, part dialogue, part silence.
Mindfulness, yoga, and 'stress reduction' are buzzing words these days, related to everything from dieting to worship to treatment of mood disorders. But students repeatedly ask me what exactly meditation is, how body movements can possibly heal old hurts or daily grind stress, and what 'enlightenment' and poses named after saints and myth might have to do with our 21st century selves. Learn what science and ancient tradition say about 'mindfulness'. Learn, too, what 'healing' and 'stress reduction' might mean in your own body and life.
Wear: comfortable clothing you can move freely in, as well as a warmer shirt to cover up with/socks as we will NOT be engaged in a strong practice or move the whole time. Have something comfortable for the discussion part.
Bring: a notebook and pen, your mat if you've got one, possibly a towel or small blanket to sit on and shift around on as we discuss. (pillows, props, all welcome.) Something to sip.
Any questions? Let me know. I'm excited!
