I pin my hopes to quiet processes and small circles, in which vital and transforming events take place. Rufus Jones
In this new year of classes, I will be offering a gentle progression of themes, allowing a week or two of exploration per theme. We will begin with the foundations: uncovering heartfelt purpose in life, intention in our days which might include a fresh commitment to practice, and the feeling sense of an Inner Resource to which we can return at any point for refuge and nourishing. From these foundations, we will begin to explore the koshas or layers of our being. While a class discussion might hone in on a specific layer, guided practice will often include meeting all the layers: Body, Breath, Emotions, Thoughts, Joy and Being (Awareness).
Current Theme: Mining the layer of Emotions
