Shinjin - Essential unity of heart, mind, and body

With Vimala Devi

$60 (members), $80 (non-members)

private sessions also available (please inquire)  

Through an integration of meditative and movement practices with the subtle hands-on work of the Alexander technique we can awaken to Shinjin - essential unity of heart, mind, and body. 

When we enter the space of letting go and enter into an open state of non-doing in our Zazen (meditation) or Yogic movement practices, we begin the process of re-synchronizing, re-integrating and re-energizing the pscho-physical nature.  Without refusal or judgement of what is we begin to soften into being present.

This basic principle of effortless effort, of spaciousness and calmness and energetic deepening, allows us to awaken into our fully human and embodied being.
