Wisdom of the Body Meditation Retreat

November 13, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - November 15, 2015 @ 2:00 pm

buddha-rupa1_300px_squareIn meditation, the body and posture are not mere preliminaries. Mindfulness is all about opening up our awareness. And how else would we do that than through our bodies and our senses? The body is THE vehicle with which we take in what our experience has to offer. But how open are we to receiving it?

It is said that if we create auspicious conditions in our body and environment, meditation and realization will automatically arise. So on this retreat we will practice embodied awareness as a doorway to deepening our practice. We will learn principles of posture that set the stage for openness and receptivity. We will explore different approaches to cultivating mindfulness and metta through the gateway of sensory experience. And there will be plenty of silence to allow each of us to touch a place of stillness within. There will also be some gentle yogic movement practices weaved into the retreat led by experienced yoga teacher Lona Kovacs. The meditation and study aspects of the retreat will be led by experienced meditation teacher Dh. Sunada.

Open to those with experience with the Mindfulness of Breathing and Metta Bhavana meditations.
