with Shastri Sandra Ladley & Chinh Nguyen

December 14th

Date details +
    Room: Meditation Hall

    Awareness practice is not just sitting meditation or meditation in action alone. It is a unique training practice in how to behave as an inspired human being. That is what is meant by being an artist.”
    Chogyam Trungpa, True Perception

    The Program
    Exploring Mindfulness and Awareness Practice further, beyond the Sitting Meditation into the playful ground of movement, awakening the Wisdom in the Body, and finding Inspiration through Movement and Play.

    How can we bring awareness practice to our lives? How can we find our heart or inspiration again when we feel discouraged, overwhelmed and disconnected?

    In this one-day workshop, Sandra and Chinh will join their trainings in Dharma Art, movement and InterPlay to guide us in finding Wisdom and Inspiration both personally and collectively through Embodied Movement.

    This workshop is for you if you are looking for a way to cut through concepts, open your heart, have fun, and take away movement practices for daily life.
