Saturday, November 10
1 - 4 pm
with Destiny Goldsberry
and Sara Tashker Buddha Hall at 300 Page Street
Mental habits are the root of so much of our internal and external disharmony.
In this workshop we will practice the art of bringing our mind and body into harmony through the ancient practices of Zen and yoga. We will also emphasize the vital importance of allowing our body-mind to really be in the experience it is having - however out of harmony it feels - without trying to change or control it. We will build skills for honoring the sacredness of each passing moment and learn to harmonize all that we experience within through Zen, movement, and conscious breath.
This afternoon workshop will include guided yoga practice, seated Zen meditation and instruction, a Dharma talk, and some time for sharing. Fees:
$40; $36 SFZC members; $32 limited income. To Register:
