The Mind and Body of Practice: A Zen and Yoga Intensive Retreat, GGF

With Shokuchi Deirdre Carrigan and Ingen Breen
in Stillwater Hall at Green Gulch Farm

  December 19 – December 23*
4 pm Wednesday – 1 pm Sunday

Explore the core of both the Zen and Yoga traditions, discovering how they support and complement each other, as we bring our lives into a deeper, 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 Farm.

*December 19 – December 23: Experience the joy and wonder of balancing mind and body amidst the deep quiet of Green Gulch Farm as we approach the Winter Solstice.

All levels of practice are welcome.
