DAY OF MINDFULNESS
Facilitated by Hal Dessel
Saturday, September 23rd
From 9:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m
early bird $20 before September 17
At this time of the year we celebrate the Autumn Equinox: equal day and equal night, balance of the dark and light from now on day is shorter than night. We will focus our Day of Mindfulness on "equanimity" which means from its syllables "equal mind." We will explore what balance equal mind has.
The practice of mindfulness includes: meditation, mindful walking, conscious breathing, and awareness of the present moment. The practice of Mindfulness is a goal for our everyday existence, not only during times of meditation. This day is appropriate for both men and women who are new to Mindfulness and meditation and those who are experienced practitioners. Please note that much of the day will be conducted in Noble Silence.
Fee does NOT include compensation for the teacher. Following an ancient tradition, Hal offers these teachings freely and will gratefully accept dana, or a free-will offering, at the end of the retreat if you are able and you find the teachings helpful.
Please wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothes. If you use a meditation cushion or bench, please bring it. Chairs are available for meditation. Please bring a sack lunch for a present moment experience of mindful eating. In order to begin on time a 9:30 a.m. please arrive five to ten minutes early.
BEGINNING LEVEL 2
Thursdays 6:30 p.m. - 8 p.m.
September 28 to November 2, 2017
Join us for this 6 week class where we will incorporate level 2 practices for increasing self awareness, calmness, strength, and flexibility. Students can practice within their comfort level in a serene, supportive environment.
Each class begins with a centering practice followed by limbering movements. Beginning level posses will precede level 2 practices. Movements are done in a slow, meditative style, with deep diaphragmatic breathing, increasing the flow of life energy for health and wellbeing. Relaxation and breathing techniques help to prepare us for a seated meditation.
Yoga invites us "to join" our individual consciousness with Universal Consciousness where we experience our Divine nature of love, joy and inner peace so that we live creatively to our potential in our everyday life.
Please dress comfortably for movement, bring a yoga mat, a small cushion and a light shawl or blanket.
