Workshop Details

Many of us would benefit from learning how to take ourselves off of autopilot, dis-identify with the mental chatter in our heads, and cultivate equanimity and non-reactivity so that we can make healthy, long-term decisions about our lives and engender loving, positive, secure, and supportive attachments to other people. We must transcend any blunt tools we developed over the years — our reactions, judgments, negative thoughts, facades, fears, expectations — and replace them with precise tools such as authentic communication, loving relationships, balanced lifestyles, mindful diets, commitments to personal integrity, and yoga and/or meditation practices. In this workshop we will explore specific practices that bode favorably for creating meaning and happiness in our lives. We will determine our long-term goals and dreams, and the skills we should cultivate to realize them; we will take all-level vinyasa flow as well as restorative yoga classes to tap into our authentic selves; we will practice various mindfulness meditations to cultivate non-reactivity in order to reduce drama and de-escalate conflicts; and we will learn to replace resentment with gratitude. Please bring a yoga mat.


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