Workshops/Retreats

Workshops

Workshops are an opportunity to deepen an aspect of your practice with minimal interruption to your daily life.

URBAN RESET

Mondays,

October 15, 22 and 29 
6:30–8:15pm
Saturday, November 3, 10am–2:30pm

Tune out the busyness of the city and join us for this urban meditation workshop. You’ll learn and practice the five mindfulness exercises as taught by Thich Nhat Hanh. Give yourself this gift of deep reflection and grounding and begin to reap the scientifically proven benefits of a dedicated mindfulness practice.  

During the three Monday meetings you’ll practice breathing, concentration, relaxation techniques, seated and walking meditation. The Saturday meeting offers you the opportunity to experience a half day of mindfulness, which will include seated and walking meditation, deep relaxation, a dharma talk and a mindful meal.

Please be willing to commit to a 5-10 minute daily practice for the duration of the workshop.

$160

(includes 4 sessions and Saturday lunch)

MINDFUL MOVEMENT PRACTICE

Saturday, November 3, 3–5pm

Gently unravel tension habits in your body that may be causing nagging aches and pains.

This workshop is based on my studies of Somatic Movement Education, Feldenkrais Awareness through Movement Practices, Continuum Movement and Meditation. We will proceed gently, mindfully and sometimes repetitively through movement patterns specifically designed to break up habitual tension arrangements in the body. I often incorporate these practices into regular weekly classes – by popular demand I am offering this workshop focused solely on these surprisingly effective systems.

Previous experience is not necessary to participate.

Retreats

Retreats offer you the opportunity to take a break from the often frenetic pace of city life, to deepen your connection to yourself and enjoy calm, beautiful surroundings.
