Living Luminously, Not Restlessly
Friday, July 14th – Sunday, July 16th
We rarely remember ourselves as born as love and innocence. Yet, when we see a newborn we are reminded of this; not cognitively, but viscerally. We’re also born innately knowing how to ask for help, and how to express our limitations and our longings.
Over our weekend together at Yoga & Love we will inquire into how we lose our sense of love and innocence; how we lose our ability to see this in others, particularly when it’s others who have become more important to us (spouse, dear friend, lover, etc); how we lose our ability to ask for help, to acknowledge our limitations & our longings.
Yet more powerful than understanding how we’ve lost these intrinsic capacities (though this is essential and fosters the forgiveness we need for the next unfolding) is the embodied realization of how to come back home to these instincts. And, for our relationships, how to co-explore the mutuality, reciprocity, and collaboration of these capacities with each other as well as with internalized parts of ourselves.
Through the practices of yoga we experience love, grace, openness, contentment, and joy. This weekend dives deep into exploring the fundamental obstacles to living. Sarahjoy and Jay address key elements of our human restlessness and how yoga practice, breathing techniques, and meditation support us in addressing anxiety, and self-critical thinking.
All levels welcome.
