Fluid Movement and Meditation
Arrival after 3pm on July 12th
In this silent retreat our work with movement and micro movement will help release physical and energetic congestions and ease us into deeper and deeper states of meditation. These explorations will be offered as guided meditations, movement sessions, Dharma Talks and group discussions. In the Zen tradition a strong and fairly formal container is held, with structured timelines for meditation and kinhin (walking meditation) as well as Morning and Evening Service. Please bring a yoga mat.
In these practices we will have the opportunity to bring our awareness and attention to the tissues of our body, and through recognizing sensation we identify feeling states of pleasure or not so pleasurable or neither. These feeling states will stimulate a series of mental and emotional processes, often revealing themes that we can identify and understand more fully as they unfold.
These inter-related phenomena can be seen functioning as a totality, awakening us to the construction of our actions and reactions, providing an opportunity to shift our karmic patterns through knowing what we choose and what we do not choose. You will take with you a stronger practice rooted in embodiment and understanding of your own Body, Speech, and Mind.
