The Resiliency Practices of Yoga and Buddhism
with Cyndi Lee
Shambhala Mountain Center, Red Feather Lakes, Colorado
September 1-3, 2017 • Cost: $300 + 2 Nights Lodging
By engaging in just one activity at a time, yoga and Buddhist practices teach us how to be fully present. However, our body tells us that it gets strong, clear, and nimble when we alternate our activity on a regular basis. Each session of this retreat will integrate single-tasking focus with our innate need for variety by toggling between slower and faster asana sequences, pranayama, meditation, contemplative writing, and walking. With inspiration from Cyndi’s talks: Gathering the Threads of Attention, All You Need to Do is Show Up, Taming the Monkey Mind and Monkey Body, we follow a path toward resiliency, freshness, and deeper connection.
