Befriending Your Body: Meeting Your Body as Your Teacher
Ann Saffi Biasetti

June 12–14, 2020
Tuition $195 + 2 nights

The spiritual traditions respect the body as the foundation of awareness and connection to self and other. Your body is full of wisdom and is your greatest teacher.

Join together with other women in this powerful retreat where we will explore the lost, but not forgotten relationship with our bodies through understanding the history of the mind/body divide, and the cultural influences that have left us all in states of disconnection, disempowerment, and disillusion. Together, we will explore embodiment through self-reflection, meditation, and self-compassion practices. Come to cultivate connection, empowerment, self-compassion and the return to your Buddhanature to live fully alive.

Women, including trans women, genderqueer women, and female-identified non-binary people are welcome.

* Participants will develop an understanding of mind/body duality and its influence on self and body image
* Through engagement in gentle, yogic movement we will explore daily embodiment on the mat
* Participants will learn newfound skills of embodiment and self-compassion that they can apply to everyday life
* Participants will learn to quiet the inner critic while reconnecting to inner strength, self-awareness, and authentic connection to others
