Sunday July 16, 10 AM - 1 PM

This is the second of two workshops presented on July 15 and July 16 with guest teacher Dennis Hunter.  For information about July 15, please use this link.  You can register for one session or both, see below for details. 

Buddhism and Yoga have been closely intertwined for centuries, and actually developed in relationship to one another. Both are paths of spiritual liberation, and the differences between them are largely differences of technique and doctrine.

The Yogic and Buddhist traditions both tell us that beneath the chatter and habitual patterns of the thinking mind is a deeper substratum of awareness reflecting our true nature. This realm of being is mysterious and ineffable, yet it is also fundamentally at peace.

In this workshop we will peel away layers of illusion and explore the underlying mystery of being that the teachings of Yoga and Buddhism point to in different ways.

This workshop is ideal for meditators, yoga practitioners and teachers, or anyone interested in exploring the common threads between Yoga and Buddhism. Includes silent meditation, lecture, guided meditation practices, some light movement/asana, and discussion. Some previous experience with meditation is recommended.
