Yoga nidra is as sleep-based, conscious relaxation and meditation technique, also known as yogic sleep. It is a state of consciousness between waking and sleeping, when your body and mind are completely relaxed, but your deeper awareness is online.
After overviewing the process, you will be led in a yoga nidra meditation, a multi-step process for integration of body, heart, mind, and spirit. We will also discuss the art and energetic benefits of the deep rest yoga nidra provides, and how to cultivate more rest into your life.
Advance registration is required. Registration closes the day prior to the event.
I might be rescheduling this date–please wait to sign up!
Have you discovered the super powers of tea?
- Not only does it refresh,
- And slow you down,
- And calm your spirits,
- And gently energize you,
But tea also gives you a chance to cultivate mindful presence with whatever you are engaged with.
We will gather, with tea, to turn our mindful and gentle gaze to poetry.
Read, listen to, and savor the singular beauty of each poem, while engaging in a mindfulness process inspired by the sacred practice of lectio divina.
Share tea, a gluten- and dairy-free treat*, and poetry—all in presence-full company.
Bring poems to share related in some way to the Spring theme of new growth…
* Real-food and low added sugar, too!
Taught by Dave Hall and Katy Taylor at the beautiful, rural Christine Center in Wisconsin.
What does it mean to recover our wholeness?
How is it that we find ourselves, as adults, living in a small room tucked away in a corner of the glorious mansion of ourselves?
What happened to the freedom and joy and possibility that we may remember from our early childhood?
The Enneagram can give us a focusing lens on our core personality type, helping us understand how the world and our families responded to our core needs, desires, and fears—and how we, in turn, responded to the world—creating the partial personality we inhabit now. The Enneagram can also show us, because it is itself a complete model of the human soul, the way to recover our initial wholeness.
We learn about our own core personality type, not to label ourselves or to stuff ourselves into a box, but to understand the nature of the box we already live in—and to see the way out!
Over many years of teaching the Enneagram together, we have developed our own unique way of conveying the riches of this transformational system, incorporating stories, poetry, music, imagery, discussion, and embodied experience, all as ways to help participants find their unique path back to wholeness.
Minimum of 15 students.
