Intentions of the Heart: Yin Yoga and Meditation Intensive
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 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 our approach from a technique-based practice to an intention-guided practice, we can more readily realize the tenderness and compassion of the unguarded Heart.
This intensive will explore a receptive approach to Yin Yoga and meditation that naturally develops qualities of kindness, generosity and compassion. The workshop is appropriate for beginners or seasoned meditators.
Each session of this intensive will focus on one of the three intentions found within the Buddha’s teaching around Wise Intention (part of the Eightfold Path): the intention of kindness, the intention of harmlessness, and the intention of renunciation.
