Touching the Moment: Indelible Presence: Housing Registration for Naropa Students
Acharya Dale Asrael and Cynthia Moku
May 15–19, 2013
Uniquely blending meditation, contemplative arts, sensory awareness practices and Hatha Yoga, we will practice in a rich environment to shed habitual patterns and rediscover the world with fresh perception. As we investigate the four elements of our inner and outer worlds, we will open ourselves to the fullness of life. Using meditation practices, periods of silence, dharma talks, discussion and daily contemplative brush-and-ink practice led by artist Cynthia Moku, we will touch the indelible presence of our everyday moments.
This retreat will be held at the Red Feather campus.
