Meditations that Settle the Mind
Classroom
Instructors: Neil McKinlay

An unsettled mind - bouncing, restless, ever-active - is perhaps the most pervasive marker of this modern era. In cultivating a more intimate relationship with the body, we begin to counter this tendency. Developing our innate capacity to rest in the body, we find our mind naturally settles, naturally opens to and welcomes all experience. Using the Meditating with the Body practices of Reggie Ray, this workshop guides us into connection with the body and with the well-being and ease that awaits there. Same weekend as Meditations that Welcome the Earth.
