Fluid Mind and Spirit Intensive – Thursday November 1-Sunday November 4th
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).
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, for continuing education credits or as part of the Fluid Yoga Teacher Training.
Reservation deposit of $240
60 CEU Credits can be applied to Fluid Yoga Teacher Training.
Fluid Mind and Spirit is a part of the Fluid Yoga® 200-hour Teacher Training. This module can be taken on its own for enrichment purposes and is open to yoga teachers and non-yoga teachers alike, or in conjunction with the remaining teacher training weekends of Fluid Body Alignment Training, and four teacher training weekends. (January-Aprl 2018.)
This course can also be divided into two modules: Fluid Mind, November 1st and 2nd, and Fluid Spirit, November 3rd and 4th. Contact us for details.
