We all seek the healing balm of silence, but where is it to be found? Even in the woods, away from all civilization, we can still hear airplanes roaring, leaves dancing in the wind, and small animals scurrying through the underbrush.
It seems that true silence is only to be found inside us, where it lives at our core, waiting to be discovered.
This workshop focuses on ways we can find our shimmering inner silence during the practice of Restorative yoga, pranayama, and meditation. These techniques themselves do not create the silence, instead they allow us to hear the silence that was always there.
Silence is not the absence of noise. Rather it is the silent whisper of the Universe as it speaks to our soul.
Join my daughter, yoga teacher and designer Lizzie Lasater, and me, Judith Hanson Lasater, for a course that will draw us inward at first, and then allow us to blossom fully into this moment of silence. What could be more healing?
We begin each session with a short lecture/discussion, and the rest of our time together will be spent in practice. Gather your props, turn off your phone, close the door, and give yourself the absolute freedom and space to experience the silence we all seek, the silence of refuge.
This event is co-sponsored by the wonderful Patricia Schneider in Yellow Springs, Ohio. Thank you, Patricia!
Highly recommended books:
Restorative Yoga and pranayama require props. For this workshop, the following props are highly recommended:
5 (five) yoga blankets (Mexican style preferred; wool or cotton ok, too. If your blankets are very thin please consider having more than the required number)
1 (one) full-size bolster (25" long or greater, firm, around 6" high is most versatile)
