“No Mud, No Lotus” – Finding Your Compassionate Practice

July 16 @ 1:30 pm - 4:30 pm

| $60 - $75

Event Navigation

“Both suffering and happiness are of an organic nature, which means they are both transitory; they are always changing. The flower, when it wilts, becomes the compost. The compost can help grow a flower again. Happiness is also organic and impermanent by nature. It can become suffering and suffering can become happiness again.”
Thich Nhat Hanh, No Mud, No Lotus: The Art of Transforming Suffering

In life, we are constantly bombarded with change, pleasant and painful. Do you want to find ease in the face of painful experiences? Find ways to be more present for the positive ones? Feel less stuck in your mud? 

This workshop will offer practices to help recognize your challenges in a supportive way and discover personal blossoming through compassion. It is often easier to express and act kindly to others than it is to ourselves. Exploring the practice of yoga as a personal expression of kindness to self, this workshop will include tools taken from Indian and Chinese traditions to aid finding a practice that works for all layers of you: body, emotion and mind.

Investigating the lines within the body through postures drawn from Alignment-based, Daoist, Yin and Restorative yoga and learning to support the body with props. Using breathing techniques (pranayama) to activate the parasympathetic nervous system, your own relaxation response. Working with mind and emotion through drawing, journaling and meditation.

All levels of yogis welcome. All you need is yourself, a mat and an open mind. All other materials will be provided.
