The Dancing Buddha: Conscious Embodiment and the Awakened Heart

Sep 07 - 12 Begins in 2 weeks
with Heather Munro Pierce & Donald Rothberg

In this workshop, we will combine traditional Buddhist practice of the “Divine Abodes” (brahmavihara) of lovingkindness, compassion, joy, and equanimity, with movement meditation and ecstatic dance, to help us access and cultivate these wonderful and transformative qualities of the open heart. We will particularly focus on developing embodied expressions of these four abodes based on our understanding that embodied practices are the key to making the qualities real in our daily lives.



We offer a rich and varied integral learning environment devoted to cultivating deep change in self and society.
