with Shokuchi Deirdre Carrigan and Shundo David Haye
July 20, 2013
1 - 4 pm
Located at ZaZEN, 2219 Filbert Street, San Francisco view map
In this workshop we will practice presence with the wondrous workings of mind and body.
We will begin the afternoon with Yoga Asana, cultivating awareness of the subtle energies of the body as we practice yoga postures. From this peaceful process, a sense of stillness of mind and body will begin to arise, and this stillness will deepen and expand during a period of Zazen (seated meditation), as we watch the subtle activity of the mind with equanimity and compassion. By the end of the afternoon, we will feel grounded, refreshed and renewed.
