Original Nature

With Erin Taylor.

Two nourishing non-residential days at the Home of Compassion.

During this retreat we will practice somatic (embodied) meditation which helps to heal the disconnection between body and mind. This separation is a symptom of stress and has become a chronic condition for many of us.

Lying-down meditation practices will support us to reconnect with our body, relax deeply and discover our belonging to the earth, which enables us to let go further. As tension and resistance melt, more and more subtle layers of experience are revealed - breath, energy/qi and the boundless dimension of 'being'.

Instead of trying to transcend or repress our suffering, which can often be the unconscious agenda of spiritual practice, embodied practice gives us a way to work with our experience as it is, to enter into an intimate relationship with our own life and to find our innate wisdom and compassion which is the true antidote to our distress.

We will do both lying-down and sitting practices as well as simple qigong exercises which support the meditation. Detailed instructions will be given and there will be opportunities for sharing and questions.

This workshop is suitable for those new to somatic (embodied) meditation, and also for experienced practitioners wanting an opportunity for intensive practice.

Cost: $200 for the weekend.
$160 earlybird if paid before December 31, 2017.

Low-income places are always available.
