This deeply introspective yin yoga workshop will include practices to compassionately awaken the body, heart and mind. These simple practices can be repeated at home regularly, creating your own personal sadhana or meditation practice, thereby deepening your capacity to draw upon compassionate acceptance for peace of mind.
In various facets of our lives we are striving for more; seeking improvements or progression along the path. Sometimes the most insightful gift we can give ourselves is the opportunity to relax the fixation to improve, analyse, or explain our circumstances; instead drawing deeply inwards into investigate bare, radical acceptance. Compassionate acceptance is the key to cultivating peace of mind.
Rather than being dis-heartened by the uncertainty of life, what if we accepted it and relaxed into it? What if we said, ‘Yes, this is the way it is; this is what it means to be human’, and decided to sit down and enjoy the ride? – Pema Chodron
