Pat Coffey and I will offer a long-weekend retreat at Serenity Ridge, sponsored by Insight Meditation Community of Charlottesville, entitled:
Exploring the Alchemy of Movement & Mindfulness
This retreat combines poetic expression through body movement with the foundational practices of mindfulness. In our time together, alternating sitting and walking meditation, we move to music and sound to create energetic aliveness that interrupts mental defenses and supports greater harmony both internally and externally. The arc of this retreat is alchemy: an enlivened exploration of what it means to be human and to feel joyfully connected to all of creation. This retreat is suitable for both beginning and seasoned practitioners, as full practice instructions will be offered.
Pat and I have taught several retreats together through Insight Meditation Community of Washington, the Meditation Teacher Training Institute, and I have taught the Mindful of Race training program to his leadership sangha team and throughout the Charlottesville community as a bridging separation initiative.
