Studying the dharma is good. Practicing the dharma is essential. Embodying the Dharma is profound. Two obstacles hamper most forms of modern practice: they use mental frameworks to address habits, patterns, and behaviors that are deeply held in the body, and the information is accessed in an environment (on the cushion), unlike the situations we encounter.
As a result, we often find it difficult to translate our best intentions into our lives. This intensive invites brave conversation and experiential exercises that help us embody the profound power of the dharma through our very Presence. Get thoughts, feelings, and actions in alignment. Navigate appropriate inner and outer relationship balance. Relax into space and recover your center over and over again.
