How do the active forms of meditation—sitting and asana—transform our ability to perceive and relate to the self and the world? 

Both the Buddha and Patanjali teach whole-body methods to free us from habits and preconceptions of being and doing that would otherwise impoverish the life within us. This five-day retreat for experienced home practitioners offers a settled experience of the similarities and differences in concentration and transformation embodied in the forms of Soto Zen and Iyengar Yoga. We will include teachings for both immediacy and development in asana, pranayama, meditation, and daily life to support your practice for the coming year.

Six months experience in meditation and/or yoga recommended.
