At the heart of every yoga, meditation and inquiry practice…is the joy and wonder that what we are seeking is Divine Love, Awareness, Presence. In the quiet removal and stillness of retreat, the fluid resonance of our innate embodied knowing can reveal itself thru the practices of yoga asana and meditation. We remember how to move and feel, to sense and trust our unique way of accessing this ever-available field of pure consciousness. The purpose of spiritual practice is to allow ourselves to awaken to each moment and to the Divine flow from which everything arises.
The practices of meditation, fluid yoga asana, yin and restorative yoga, pranayama, meditative movement, and silence support this embodied opening reminding us of who we are at the deepest level while revealing conditioned patterns which keep us from this knowing.
Learning to listen and respond to the wisdom of our inner lives through embodied spiritual practices reveals our natural state of being and reveals what is truly of value in our lives.
Meditation, fluid yoga asana, yin and restorative yoga, pranayama, meditative movement, and silence support our embodied reminding us who we are.
Blending movement and stillness, and encouraging inner listening as the portal to the mystery beyond form, I offer a path to what lies beneath the surface, creating a sacred environment for students to explore through asana, pranayama, meditative movement and meditation, the ease, openness, compassion and inherent wisdom of Divine Love that is our true home.
The daily ritual of practice over 33 years continues to guide my life in an ever evolving embodied inquiry into who I am at the deepest level… it is this exploration that guides my teaching.
I first began studying yoga asana in the Iyengar community, and later with Angela Farmer and teachers of the Vanda Scaravelliapproach. Having a desire to deepen my practice, I began sittingVipassana meditation retreats with SN Goenka and with teachers from the Insight Meditation Society and Forest Refuge. Studies in meditative movement with Jungian based Authentic Movement and Continuum generated further inquiry into the subtlety of form and formlessness, the dance between movement and stillness, and the complimentary practices of yoga asana and meditation. The influence of teachers of Advaita, the non-dual tradition of Ramana Maharshi brought another thread into this tapestry of study, practice and teaching.
I developed Body Prayers – Yoga, Meditative Movement and Meditation Silent Retreats for Women, led yoga teacher trainings, have taught inquiry through meditative movement, and co-developed Rolling Meadows Yoga and Meditation Retreat Center in Maine. See more photos and other events by this presenter
