14Sep10:00 AM4:30 PMYoga + Dharma: Awakening in the Body10:00 AM - 4:30 PM Community Meditation Center Teacher(s): Ashley Sharp No prerequisiteOpen

Event Details

Sliding Scale: $75 – 200. Code SP4D18.

The path of awakening guides us to an integration of mind, body, and heart. Waking up includes waking up in the body; as the Buddha said, “Within this fathom-long body is found all of the teachings.” Yet, in modern times, we have largely lost our connection to this natural and instinctive realm of our experience.

In this day retreat, we will explore how wisdom and clarity arise through the body. The yoga offered will be an all levels practice with an emphasis on mindfulness rather than athletic performance. The meditation will include guidance for those newer to the practice of meditation.

You may bring a mat if you have one, and mats will also be provided.

Young Adults (18-26) and Seniors (65+ with limited income) are invited to attend this day for $45.
