Wide Body, altitudinous breath
w/ Cary Spaeth
“Depending upon which dimension you are experiencing, everything you perceive acquires the depth and beauty of that dimension.” - A.H. Almaas
The practices will be a mix of asana (mindful movement), pranayama (attention to breath), and meditation (stilling your mind) based on the following seed of contemplation:
From the moment we are one cell, we are each on the journey of impermanent change and growth, and it’s happening in the context of relating to wherever we happen to be. This process of relating is happening in both directions. Extend an arm and circle it through space, and space selfsame extends and circles. It is a tender conversation. All the time our bodies are in dialogue with the worlds around us and within us; are being shaped by and shaping those worlds in real time. Our fingerprints tell the remembered story of exploring and organizing our first home, our movements and footsteps articulate the current one. Our bodies contain within them a primordial wisdom of growth patterns, of coming together and coming apart, of balance and letting go, and that wisdom has long lasting implications.
For 3 days we’ll gather together in and around Joseph, OR. We’ll inquire into the potent tools and techniques the somatic and contemplative practices of yoga have the capacity to uncover and illuminate.
“...conversation is a crucial way to explore what we believe and to make new understandings and ideas possible.” Adrienne Maree Brown
