Fluid Yoga®: Mind and Spirit: October 24th-27th, 2019
Many of us start off a yoga practice with a focus on the physical movement. We may have read of its benefits or been told how good yoga is for strength and flexibility and can compliment any exercise routine. Often it takes years before we understand or fully appreciate that the milleniums old practice is a complete lifestyle and not just an exercise for the body.
The Fluid Mind+Spirit weekend intensive is an ideal opportunity for those that have had a steady practice and want to understand more about the spiritual nature of Yoga. It will include a foundational understanding of mind training and the science of meditation. Our exploration will include the study of the Six Perfections (paramitas) as a gateway to living an exemplary life filled with generosity, patience, diligence, morality, meditation and wisdom. We’ll also learn more about the Buddha and his own journey and discoveries.
This weekend retreat requires no pre-requisites or level of yoga practice.
Starting with an overview of the foundational Tibetan Buddhist teachings on the mind, this program explores
- Four preliminary techniques designed to elicit deep reflection
- The science of meditation
- Specific meditation practices, including shamatha, maitri (loving-kindness), and tonglen
- Ways to establish a regular meditation practice at home
- Yoga nidra (the yoga of relaxation)
- Tools for applying yoga philosophy to everyday life.
If you’d like to join us from out of town we can help you find local accomodation in the beautiful Southern Maine area.
