May 26 – 29, 2017 / Zazen Private Retreat Facility
Mindfulness, meditation and yoga are symbiotic and mutually supportive practices that facilitate the capacity to more fully participate in, and be more at ease with this experiment of life.
Being embodied organically leads to becoming more rooted to the earth, to the ground of our being. The more connected - energetically, mentally and emotionally - we are to our own body and the larger body of our planet we become, the more present and at home we can be anywhere and at anytime.
This weekend retreat will offer a variety of embodiment practices: mindful yoga, mindfulness and meditation while seated, standing, walking and lying down.
We will practice in the quiet sanctuary of mountains in Ukiah, with others of like heart where we will drop into our bodies with a conscious mind and the support of these ancient wisdom practices.
