After two years of Covid, many of us are holding stress and grief in our nervous systems and we’re feeling taxed and exhausted. In this half day we will develop and deepen somatic and self compassion practices to release this trapped energy and better address these challenging times.
This will be an experiential retreat. All levels of experience welcome. Cost is $50 and can be paid at Paypal here or Venmo @onedharma. If paying by check please go here for the info and address. Please include your email address. We are offering a reduced fee for anyone who needs financial support. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire.
This talk explores the practice of becoming one with the “other,” what we perceive as the unknown. Sometimes the “other” is ourselves – the parts we don’t know or see clearly. Maybe its the sadness that keeps arising, or the longing for something we can’t quite reach. The judgement or fear. To explore this with compassion and presence, we need a sense of safety but also courage.
Sometimes our practice calls for active, intentional cultivation and other times simply letting go and allowing. By recognizing and making room for the dance between the two we can engage in balanced practice that embraces the fullness of the dharma.
Here we are again, whip lashed by the rise of the Delta variant just as many of us thought the worst of the virus was in the rear view mirror. How do we navigate with no reliable ground? This talk explores how to walk where there is no ground and how to find freedom even when the rug is pulled out from under your feet.
This talk is from the first night of my first in person retreat in 1.5 years (due to Covid).
