Workshop Details

“In times of crisis and distress it can be challenging to hold to our yoga and Zen practice,” write the leaders. “During this week, we’ll rekindle the inner fires that help us stay true to ourselves and to the needs of this beautiful, troubled world. We will immerse ourselves in the river of practice in order to steep in the wisdom it brings. Through the alchemy of yoga and Zen — sitting, walking, doing postures, and flowing in the SATYA (Sensory Awareness Training for Yoga Attunement) movements — we can reconnect with our underlying courage and commitment to live a wholesome life. In deep practice we can embody strong bones, supple tissues, and an open heart; these are the necessary ingredients for transformation. By staying true to the Three Treasures of Zen practice: the Buddha, the dharma and the sangha, we can discover that we are the positive change necessary to help awaken and enliven the world we live in.” Please bring a yoga mat.


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