Taming the Wild Horse: Riding the Energy of Emotions
Acharya Dale Asrael
May 24–28, 2012
Intense emotions such as anger, jealousy and fear can either trap us in struggle or open us to the direct experience of awakening. This retreat presents techniques to expose core belief structures that perpetuate emotional confusion, meditation practices that foster clarity and insight, and daily Hatha Yoga classes. Revealing that even the most painful emotions offer us an opportunity to develop genuine compassion, these practices also give us a glimpse of the pure energy that is the essence of emotion. Guest presenter and artist Cynthia Moku will also lead special contemplative brush-and-ink sessions as a means of processing emotions.
