How Do You Rest? What Does Resting Mean to You?
This workshop is an invitation to explore rest as a foundation for spiritual practice. Through simple but powerful individual and group practices, you’ll expand your capacity for relaxation and support the transformation of your karmic imprints. You’ll learn how to embody the most authentic expression of yourself—a vessel of Divine Love.
You may reveal insights into destructive behaviors and become more aware of how you hold stress in your body. Instead of representing obstacles, you can see these behaviors and stresses as a clear path to deepening your understanding and experience of real rest.
This workshop is an open space for Self-Inquiry, allowing movement to become moving medicine and bodywork to reveal insights into your True Nature.
Join Us and Explore:
- Somatic meditation, as inspired by the Buddhist Vajrayana Tradition and renowned teacher Reggie Ray
- Self-Inquiry and developing Self-Awareness, as Ramana Maharshi said, “Be still, and do nothing”
- Continuum Movement, a form of moving Self-Inquiry developed by Emilie Conrad that creates a dance between consciousness, stillness, sound, and subtle movement to heal and unify the entire being
- Bliss Therapy Cranial Massage, Dr. Jack Ebner’s hands-on bodywork techniques for the neck and cranium, using pressure points to bring tension release, healing, and deep relaxation
- Hatha Yoga, including restorative and hip-opening practices
- Yoga Nidra, understanding and practicing the yoga of sleep
- Sharing circles
