Date & Time
10:00 am - 5:00 pm
Michael Gelb and Sharon Salzberg
“Meditation,” Sharon Salzberg writes in Real Happiness, “is the ultimate mobile device; you can use it anywhere, anytime, unobtrusively.”
Many practitioners who experience relative stillness while sitting, however, lose it upon rising from the cushion. This practical, engaging, and inspiring daylong workshop brings together two teachers who have each been exploring the relationship of stillness in motion and motion in stillness for more than 40 years.
You will learn how to:
•Bring more ease, flow, and joy to your meditation practice
•Move from an experience of grace and inner peace when off the cushion
•Release habitual thoughts and associated patterns of movement to discover a wellspring of wisdom, vitality, and love
Transform both your meditation practice and your life off the cushion in this uplifting program.
Note: Suitable for complete beginners and advanced meditation practitioners.
