Meditation and Yoga Retreat for Women
July 4–8, 2012
Our bodies hold emotions, images, patterns and stories. When we inhabit our bodies through mindfulness practice, we then know ourselves as complete and wakeful beings. We will play with the four postures of mindfulness, practice flowing and restorative yoga, and retreat into the forests, groves and fields of Shambhala Mountain Center. Through sitting meditation we will contemplate the nature of “Way-Seeking Mind,” the tender, underworld of our being. Our practice and insight will deepen through silent mornings, and our community will develop understanding and trust through evening talking circles.
NOTE: Register early; limited to fifteen women.
