Sitting meditation can be a white-knuckled test of endurance for many,
and even those with years of experience struggle with pain and
discomfort on the cushion.

In this workshop, Alexander Technique instructor Dan Cayer will teach
us how to use mindfulness and compassion towards our body to develop a
more sustainable, healthy sitting posture.  Remembering that the body
and mind are not separate, we can create a meditation practice which
fosters and sustains a balanced mental and physical presence in our
meditation experience and our lives.

Students of all levels are welcome.  Please wear comfortable clothing.

Dan Cayer is a nationally certified teacher of the Alexander Technique and a meditator in the Shambhala tradition. After a serious injury left Dan unable to work or carry out household tasks like cleaning dishes, he began studying the Alexander Technique.  His return to health, as well as his experience dealing with the physical, mental, and emotional aspects of pain, has inspired him to help others.  Dan now teaches the Alexander Technique as a method of recovering balance and well-being.  He advocates it as a fantastic embodiment of mindfulness and awareness both on and off the cushion.

Wow! This looks great... Would love to attend something like this.

I suppose because of the physical nature it wouldn't work as a podcast?
