The shift from “thinking” to “being” is one of the most essential aspects of the meditative journey. We will explore somatic practices to quiet the conceptual mind, unlocking the hidden power, warmth and wisdom of the body. Drawing upon their father-son connection, James and Adam Baraz will offer teachings from Tibetan yoga and Buddhist mindfulness practice.
