with Scott Tusa
April 12 & 13
"To stop your mind does not mean to stop the activities of mind. It means your mind pervades your whole body." – Shunryu Suzuki
Join us for an evening talk on enhancing your meditation through the body and if you wish to experience the meditations, continue with the half-day meditation retreat.
Meditation happens in the body. But, in our quest for more mental and spiritual clarity, we often leave the body behind. This makes it difficult to develop a connection to deeper states of meditative awareness that enable consistent progress along the Buddhist path.
In this half-day meditation retreat we will dive deep into embodied awareness practices that engage a sustainable and joyful spiritual journey.
Through periods of silent meditation and discussion we will explore and develop our connection to a calmer and more resilient state of being and how to better overcome mental and emotional habits that cause unnecessary suffering.
