Cultivate an embodied awakening of mind and heart in this silent retreat that blends the traditions of yoga and Insight Meditation (Vipassana). Through an integrated flow of meditation in movement and in stillness, we discover that what we call “body” and what we call “mind” are different aspects of the same living presence. And we explore how to use this integration of body and mind to express our practice through an engaged life that addresses both the suffering in the world and the suffering stored in our bodies. Each day includes two sessions of mindful yoga practice suitable to all levels of yoga experience and physical ability with an emphasis on sensing, nourishing and fully inhabiting the body.
As you open, find ease in, energize and attune your body and nervous system, you’ll learn to sustain these qualities in your seated meditation and throughout the rest of your life. And you’ll learn skills that can help you stay grounded, centered, and open-hearted as you take your practice off the mat and cushion and into a world that so needs it.
Spirit Rock extends a special invitation to young adults (age 18-26) who wish to attend this retreat at a rate of $35 per night, on a first come, first serve basis. A limited number of special rates are available, please apply early.
