Friday, July 5, 5pm - Sunday, July 7, 2013, noon
with Lisa Jansen and Shinchi Linda Galijan

This weekend retreat will emphasize the combination of Hatha Yoga and Zen meditations to bridge the gap between internal and external experience.

We will practice Yin and Therapeutic Yoga to feel into our body as transparency or empty space. We will also include a strong Hatha Yoga practice, learning to move through stronger postures while maintaining buoyancy and aliveness. With teachings from the Zen traditions and subtle work, the weekend will expand on how to experience the joining of our consciousness and our body.

Our stronger Hatha practice will utilize movements that teach how to move from the vertical core of the body, so our movements are ?uid and light. When our movement is ?uid and light it can shift our sense of identity from the muscular surface of the body to the more subtle dimension of consciousness pervading the body.

The combination of teachings will emphasize access to greater depths of presence within the body/mind. From this space we can embody spiritual awakening as an experience of our body as pure subjectivity.

All are welcome! Lisa and Linda teach to all levels and embrace the beginner as well as the advanced student. Join them this weekend to learn how to ?ne tune your perception and embody all aspects of self.

“Enlightenment is a re?nement of all our senses. Ultimately we can perceive our environment as empty luminous space pervading everything.”
