Releasing the Habit of Fear: Zen, Yoga, and the Alexander Technique, 6/24 – 27
with Kristen Davis and Shokuchi Deirdre Carrigan
June 24 – 27, 2018 (Monday – Thursday)
No previous experience in any of the modalities is required.
The three practices of Zen, Yoga, and Alexander Technique share in common the wish to end suffering that is due to habits of separation.
In this retreat, we will explore in zazen (seated meditation), in yogāsana (yoga postures) and through the principles of Alexander Technique, how the body-mind gets stuck in a fear response, creating tension and anxiety, and how we can find the expansive awareness that allows the body and mind to open to other possibilities, and a life lived fully from a place of openness and ease.
