Oh wondrous creatures, by what strange miracle do you so often not smile? —Hafiz Many of us are amazed when we read the latest scientific discovery about the size of the cosmos or the workings of biological evolution, but few of us know how to bring that sense of wonder and delight into our lives. In this workshop, we will make creative use of classic Buddhist meditation practices and Anusara Yoga to help us embody the amazement of being alive and human. This workshop combines the traditional practice of Buddhist mindfulness meditation with sessions based on Anusara Yoga.
