Women’s Practice Retreat: Yoga & Meditation with Katharine Kaufman
June 27–July 1, 2007
Share yoga practice, meditation and your stories as women on “The Way” in this unique retreat. Our daily practice will include silent sitting meditation practice, flowing yoga classes; deeply relaxing restorative yoga sessions and outdoor contemplative walking meditation. We will also build community and share our wisdom by creating an altar together and offering our “Way Seeking Mind” stories about own way, the path of our individual unfolding. Because of the intimate nature of this retreat, space will be limited to 15 participants. Previous yoga or meditation experience recommended.
