Precious Knowing: A Meditation and Yoga Retreat for Women with Katharine Kaufman
January 5–9, 2011
Our bodies hold emotions, images, patterns and stories. When we learn how to fully inhabit our bodies through mindfulness practices we can know ourselves as complete and wakeful beings. We will practice sitting meditation, flowing and restorative yoga, and playful improvisational movement. Alone and together, our practice and insight will deepen through silent mornings and our community will develop understanding and trust through evening talking circles.
Some yoga or meditation experience is recommended.
