Interview: Yoga to Balance Light and Dark, Heaven and Earth, Mind and Body
with Shokuchi Deirdre Carrigan and Ingen Breen
December 20-22, 2013
Friday 6 pm dinner to Sunday noon

Experience the joy and wonder of balancing mind and body in this Zen and Yoga retreat amidst the deep quiet of Green Dragon Temple.

Explore the core of both traditions, discovering how they support and complement each other, as we bring our lives into a fuller and richer communication with reality. Alternating between sitting meditation and yoga asana, we come to appreciate how the practices are both different and the same, not two and not one. A full schedule of Zen and Yoga sessions is offered, providing the opportunity to experience an intensive retreat. Participation is flexible, however, and you are free to take time to walk about and enjoy the natural beauty of Green Gulch.
