Rest and Silence: practicing from stillness, spaciousness and ease.
One of the greatest lacks in our life is, paradoxically, nothing. We rarely take time to just be, to rest, to feel silence, to hear our deepest heart’s longing.
We are just too busy, too occupied, too distracted, too over-scheduled.
We try so many strategies: new calendars, to-do lists, New Year’s resolutions, and endless promises to ourselves to do less.
But we don’t.
This year our workshop in Overland Park, KS, at The Yoga School of Therapeutics will focus on our yoga practice in all its forms: asana, both Active and Restorative, pranayama, and meditation.
But our overarching theme will be to add to our practice a special focus on how we avoid deep rest and silence, what we are resisting and why, and how we can move past our addiction to constantly doing more and more, and finally arrive at our own safe port.
In addition to classical techniques of practice, we will explore ourselves
through discussion, short writing assignments, and the cultivation of an introspective attitude.
