Weekend Offering

Sitting Body, Sitting Budy

Exploring the Practice of Meditating With the Body

The journey of embodiment is our essential journey as human beings. Coming into more intimate contact with the body, we find a source of unerring wisdom and guidance. We find the wisdom of the Buddhas - a knowing that exists beneath habit and expectation, that offers our truest path to discovery and transformation.

This all-level, all-tradition workshop will continue our exploration of the ‘Meditating with the Body’ curriculum, a body of teachings designed to awaken an ever closer relationship with the journey in each of us. Mixing guided meditation and group discussion, we will touch the inherent wisdom of our being. We will find ourselves able to engage our lives more fully and more appropriately than ever before.

Participants are advised to wear warm, comfortable clothing, and to bring a blanket and mat to lay on. Should participants have a meditation cushion or bench, these are recommended - otherwise, chairs will be available.
