Bridging the Gap: Movement Meditation and Mindfullness for Daily Living
Facilitated by: Barbara Collins and Sandra Reeve
This 5-day workshop introduces movement as ‘mindfulness in motion’, as a meditation practice in itself, and to explore the thresholds and transitions between sitting meditation, walking meditation, free-form movement practice and simple everyday activities. How can we cultivate embodied presence with our eyes closed and our eyes open, in action and in stillness? We move between indoor and outdoor sessions,
between time alone and time together, between nature and town, between quietness, stillness and movement as we explore how to integrate the source of meditation into our daily lives and into the busy stream of activities that fill our days.
