Yin Yoga and Meditation for Thinkers
March 4th, 2017; 1-4pm
Often in our yoga and meditation practice there is an implicit bias against thinking. We compare our thinking mind to a wild monkey on amphetamines, swinging anxiously from thought to thought. We try to NOT be lost in thought. We try to focus on our body and breath.
But in practice, we don’t need to be at war with our minds. In fact, we can engage with our thoughts in more skillful ways that serve our development of peace and wisdom.
In this workshop, we will use the quiet spiritual practices of Yin Yoga and Seated Meditation, followed by reflective writing, to shed light on experience, to learn from that experience, and to promote an onward cultivation of wisdom.
All thinkers are encouraged to join.
