Discovering Authentic Presence & The Art of Self- Love
In this meditation intensive, in addition to the teachings and practices normally found in Level 1, we will explore the theme The Art of Self- Love.
One of the deepest and most challenging issues we face today is learning to love ourselves. Most of us wrestle with self- judgement, self- rejection, and the pain of the inner critic. Often, these tendencies can go unnoticed in us, and we don’t even realize how hard we are being on ourselves.
The practice of sitting meditation invites us to be fully present, open, and receptive to what’s happening both within and around us. We learn to soften and relax with feelings, sensations, and the natural movement of mind. This capacity to relax and just be with ourselves is the first taste of self- love. The more deeply we open to our experience in the present moment the more this self- love can grow.
In addition to the practice of sitting meditation, we will do psycho- spiritual inquiry work where we explore and soften the conditioned patterns that lead us away from intimate self- acceptance.
Practices will include: Sitting and walking meditation, Psycho-Spiritual Inquiry work, Teachings
, Yoga Asanas
On Sunday morning, there will be a yoga class given by Prana Vinyasa Yoga certified teacher Sylvie Coromina Nagaraj.
