Five Thursdays, January 14, 21, 28, and February 4, 11
9 - 10:20 am, PST
In this time of continued challenges, we have been called to stand in the space of transforming our challenges and pain into our own courage, wisdom, and unconditional love by taking responsibility for the welfare of all beings. In this place we are resting while moving and moving while resting.
Begin 2021, "the year of transformation," with a Dakini’s Whisper, 5-week series of SBT in which we will delve into the art of moving and resting mind and body through the sequencing of the subtle body movements. Each session will entail a short check-in meditation and a series of subtle body training exercises, concluded by Mahamudra meditation.
Dakini’s Whisper subtle body training offers an integrative approach to a spiritual journey through body-based contemplative and embodied practices. Fully rooted in the ancient Tantric tradition, each class will assist us in connecting deeper with our inner experience of the awakened body, speech, and mind along with our sense of where we are in the larger expanse of space on our life journey.
This subtle body training series is open to anyone! Also, it will serve as a complementary training to the DAKINI JOURNEY – An Immense and Benevolent Presence to the World, CHO MASTERY JOURNEY - A Comprehensive Chö Training Journey, and new MAHAMUDRA JOURNEY - The Art of Looking, Resting, and Living Presence. Dakini’s Whisper Journeys students are encouraged to participate!
Join Khandro-la and your fellow pilgrims on this remarkable journey in this unprecedented time!
PARTICIPATION AND REGISTRATION INFORMATION
This series is open to all levels of physical ability. However, we ask that you notify us of any physical or mental condition of which we may need to be aware. Please do not eat one hour before the class and tune in 5 minutes before the session starts.
The cost for this series is, as always, based on a sliding scale, $75 - $95, or $20, for a single drop-in session, in the hopes that financial limitations will not be a barrier. (Mahamudra members, Cho Mastery, and Dakini members, keep in mind that you may participate in one SBT series this year at no cost to you. Sponsor Level members, are able to participate in all SBT offerings at no cost. Of course, dana is always appreciated and will be used to support others for whom finances may be a barrier to participation.)
NOTE: We offer financial assistance if the sliding scale is not affordable. Members receiving this generosity will be asked to give their energy and talents through volunteer activities that will be coordinated by the DW Volunteer Coordinator. This is a reciprocal relationship in that the volunteer offers their work or service and receives the benefits of reduced membership in the Dakini’s Whisper sangha or reduced fees for retreats or other events. For more information, please contact Ellen at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please register in advance by completing the form here. If there is supplementary material for a class, you will receive these as well as a Zoom Meeting invitation prior to the beginning of the series.
