HRIDAYA SILENT MEDITATION & YOGA RETREAT – Seoul
May 19, 2017 - May 21, 2017180000w – 220000w
The word Hridaya is a composite of the Sanskrit words “hrid” and “ayam”, meaning Heart Center.
Join Karissa Grace for this unique weekend, giving yourself a profound opportunity to quiet the mind, rejuvenate the body and open the heart. The Hridaya Silent Meditation & Yoga Retreat will be three days spent in noble silence in the beautiful Bukhansan mountains north of Seoul, allowing time to drop the everyday acts of doing and sink into just being.
With daily silent meditation, rejuvenating and relaxing hatha yoga, and daily life awareness practices, this weekend presents a path for the revelation of the Self and teaches how to live a life of stillness, surrender, and joy. This is the path of the Spiritual Heart.
Using techniques from vast, mystical traditions and Hridaya Yoga, we′ll learn how to create the best conditions for meditation including cultivating awareness, mental concentration, meditation techniques based on opening to the Spiritual Heart and how to apply these techniques in daily life. The last day will include practical and concrete integration practices like how to create a home practice and maintain an open heart off the mat. We’ll also practice daily Hridaya Hatha Yoga, which is distinct from other practices as it engages not only the physical body but the entire being. Asanas are performed with awareness, turning physical practice into blissful meditation.
Open to anyone, whether you are new to meditation and yoga or are experienced and have a daily practice.
