Great wisdom lives in the body.—The Hevajra Tantra
Take your yoga practice to the next level. Drawing on the tantric wisdom tradition of Tibetan Buddhism, this retreat offers practices that help you recognize the wisdom that resides naturally in the human body. By alternating stillness and movement, you learn to relate to the subtle energies of the body and mind. These practices assist in healing emotional wounds and have the potential to uncover your inborn capacity for love.
- To sense the “subtle body” underlying your physical form
- The relationship between emotion and the body’s subtle energies
- The view of Dzogchen (the “great perfection”)
- Basic postures and movements that complement meditation.
Discover how meditating with the body, in conjunction with movement, can open the door to nondual awareness and help you find the innate joy (sukha) of the subtle body.
