Mudra Space Awareness practice is open to anyone whether or not you have had previous experience with meditation.
This workshop will introduce Mudra to those not familiar with the practice, and deepen it for those that are.
Mudra Space Awareness is a method of mind/body training that draws inspiration from meditation master Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche's early education in Tibetan monastic dance. It is a discipline unique to the Shambhala lineage, and is rarely taught or practiced. The exercises combine intense physical training with focused sensory awareness to unlock the inherent awakened energy in the mind/body relationship. Mudra trains us to join fully with the intensity of experience.
Come experience this provocative and profound awareness practice that comes from the Tibetan yogic tradition and an intersection with experimental theatre techniques in the 1970s in the West.
