This is an eight-day silent meditation retreat. Come prepared for deep introspection. Retreat includes sitting, walking, moving meditation and daily Dharma discourse.
The Buddha encouraged students to practice meditation standing, sitting, laying down and in all bodily functions. In honor of these ancient instructions we have created a unique insight retreat that incorporates all of these aspects.
By bringing these disciplines together we have found a system to catalyze transformation and change. It is in this environment that one can learn to build the skills and conditions that cultivate peace, balance and well-being.
Each day Lucia will present a 1.5hr class. The 5Rhythms moving mediation practice will be presented through the perspective of Buddhist insight.REGISTER TODAY!
Sylvie Minot and Wendy Heffner are hosting a 2-day Medicine Circle in Marin at the end of September.
Medicine Circle workshops weave ritual, community, movement, sound and prayer, allowing us to reconnect with Spirit. We use the 5Rhythms® practice, cultural anthropologist Angeles Arrien's teachings and her work with indigenous culture and ritual, as well as sound healing from Peru.
As Angeles tells us, the Fall is the perfect time to dance with the ancestors, as the veil to the spirit world is thinner. We will draw from her "The Way of the Teacher" work, which relates to non-attachment and wisdom. The spirit world is the best teacher of non-attachment.
This intensive weekend offers a deep immersion into a soulful dance journey. As we create this container to hold each other, dancers may enter into the center and move with whatever is calling for expression or healing, finding greater freedom, connection and peace.
Medicine Circle Workshop Schedule:
Saturday, September 29th, 11am-6pm
Sunday, September 30th, 11am-6pm
