Insight Yoga & Psychological Inquiry with Sarah Powers

March 23 – 24 at Westgate

In this 2-day event, Sarah will encourage us to develop and/or deepen our commitment to a balanced daily practice that nourishes not only our body and breath, but our hearts and minds as well. Each class will give us the opportunity to highlight these four themes individually, so that we might braid them together inside us as a holistic mandala (or sanctuary of practice) that we can enter daily for renewed inspiration and insight.

In each session Sarah will focus on salient features of Buddhist Mindfulness meditation with both lecture and practice. Through clarifying and highlighting the basic tenets of a skillful practice, Sarah will help make meditation a joyous endeavor, reminding us of its essential place in our lives.

We will practice various Yin/Yang asana sequences that encourage stability and mobility, grounded-ness and ease, enabling us to merge what Taoists call heaven and earth within our own bodies and minds, while cultivating the sensitive energy body simultaneously.

Sarah will also include heart based practices mingled with interpersonal dialogues. In Buddhism, these qualities of loving kindness and compassion are suggested as having boundless possibilities within each of us. To initiate the proliferation of these values in our personal experience, we can lean our hearts and minds in these directions through contemplation on these themes, as well as daring to share interpersonal awareness practices out loud. Please come with an interest in sharing some of these personal themes in dialogue with others.

Each session will be a complete experience, but these practices also build on each other. For this reason Sarah suggests that you sign up for both days in order to develop a self practice with a clear understanding of these diverse yet interrelated disciplines.
