weekend-mudraConfidence Beyond Concept: A Weekend of Mudra Space Awareness with Greg Heffron

April 22 and 23 | 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

“Mindfulness” doesn’t mean anything without embodiment. What are we mindful of? The Buddha’s first ‘foundation’ for mindfulness was our body. The unique Shambhala discipline of Mudra Space Awareness challenges us to see that even ‘highly trained’ people aren’t often willing to relate in a raw way with sensory experience. Instead of relating to our actual body, we tend towards what Chogyam Trungpa called “psychosomatic body” — where we think about our bodily experience, rather than actually feeling embodied. This process is one of the main ways we disconnect from experience and lose our innate confidence. This workshop will introduce Mudra to those not familiar, and deepen it for those that are. Note that Mudra Space Awareness is entirely distinct from Maitri Space Awareness. The two disciplines are not directly connected in their practice or presentation. More about Mudra Space Awareness can be found here.

I was in love with … Continue
