Fluid Yoga: Mind and Spirit: Thursday November 9-Sunday November 12 with Kevan Gale

In this Fluid Mind and Spirit Intensive students explore a central question: How can we let go of fear, craving and attachment in order to become happier and more content? The Fluid Mind approach begins with a foundational understanding of Tibetan Buddhist mind training, and continues to explore the science of meditation, the foundations of practice, and specific meditation practices (including shamata, maitri/lovingkindness, and tong-len).
The Fluid Spirit explores the tools students need to better understand their own minds. Our exploration will include study of the Six Perfections (paramitas) as a gateway to a discussion of living an exemplary life filled with generosity, patience, diligence, morality, meditation and wisdom. Additional topics include the Buddha’s discoveries under the Bodhi Tree, the Four Noble Truths, and foundational Tibetan Buddhist philosophies.
There are no pre-requisites for this intensive. This intensive can be taken independently as a meditation immersion, continuing education credits or as part of the Fluid Yoga Teacher Training.

COST: $800
Reservation deposit of $240
60 CEU Credits can be applied to Fluid Yoga Teacher Training.

Thai massage, an ancient form of bodywork drawing its roots from the Buddhist temples of Thailand, Ayurveda, and Yoga, consists of a series of yoga-like stretches, which the therapist performs on the clothed client on a mat on the floor.

Upon completion of Level 1, participants will be to perform a 60-90 minute Thai Bodywork treatment.  Each day begins with an hour of guided gentle yoga to warm and prepare the body for the Thai Yoga practice.  There is a 1-hour lunch break.
