Intentions of Heart:
Yin Yoga and Insight Meditation
March 3, 2018: 1pm – 4pm
Our intentions—conscious or unconscious, big or small—contribute to our suffering or our happiness. Intentions are the seeds that become our garden. Within a “yin” approach to yoga and meditation, we can become more mindful of our intentions.
The practice of stillness allows us to listen to and clarify our deeper intentions for practice and our life. Often we may practice yoga and meditation with an overemphasis on technique. But by shifting one’s approach from a technique-based practice to an intention-guided practice, we can more readily realize the tenderness and compassion of the unguarded Heart.
The Buddha defined Wise Intention as having three aspects: the intention of kindness, the intention of compassion and the intention of renunciation. Each intention serves the skillful cultivation of wisdom and love in our life.
In this special Yin Yoga intensive, will use the quiet practices of Yin Yoga and Insight Meditation, to shed light on intention, to learn from that intention, and to promote an onward cultivation of wisdom and compassion.
