Precious Knowing: A Meditation & Yoga Retreat for Women with Katharine Kaufman
January 4–8, 2012
Our bodies hold emotions, images, patterns and stories. When we learn to fully inhabit our bodies through mindfulness practices, we can know ourselves as complete and wakeful beings. To do this, we will practice sitting meditation, flowing and restorative yoga, and playful improvisational movement. We will deepen our practice and insight through silent mornings, alone and together, and our community will develop understanding and trust during evening talking circles. Previous yoga or meditation experience recommended.
