Touching the Moment: Indelible Presence with Acharya Dale Asrael & Cynthia Moku

Acharya Dale Asrael

May 18–22, 2007

Tuition $125 + 4 nights

Uniquely blending meditation, contemplative arts, sensory awareness practices in nature and hatha yoga, this retreat will provide a rich practice environment in which we can shed conditioned habit patterns and rediscover the world with fresh perception. As we investigate the four elements of our inner and outer worlds, we will open ourselves to the fullness of life. Experimenting with movement, rhythm, gesture and balance will be an integral part of our exploration.

A professor at Naropa University in the Transpersonal Counseling Psychology, Buddhist Studies and Contemplative Education departments, she also trains meditation instructors who wish to serve in hospices, prisons and homeless shelters.
