Touching the Moment: Indelible Presence
Acharya Dale Asrael and Cynthia Moku
May 9–13, 2018
Rediscover Fresh Perception
Uniquely blending meditation, contemplative arts, sensory discovery practices, and Hatha Yoga, we will practice in a rich environment to shed habitual patterns and rediscover the world with fresh perception.
Open to the Fullness of Life
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.
