YOUR BODY IS YOUR PRACTICE

Learning to become mindful and familiar with our body sensations and paying attention to our physical reactions can help with stress, pain, and self-acceptance. In this monthly workshop with experienced teacher Dan Cayer, you will learn to activate your body's natural relaxation response through practicing simple techniques. 

Our body can be a source of joy and confidence, and an instrument for pleasure and connection.  But all too often, we experience it as an achy, chubby, worry and tension-filled burden that we try to manage, ignore, or control in the midst of our busy lives.  Research indicates that being with the reality of our present moment body experience, and learning to explore it with patience and kindness, can help everyone find a sense of peace which doesn't depend on pleasant feelings or ideal circumstances.

In this ongoing monthly workshop, we will explore what it means to establish a spiritual and mindfulness practice with the body as a central element.  How can we care for our body without trying to micromanage or endlessly perfect it?  How much discomfort is okay? Can we learn to hear our body's wisdom?

This two-hour workshop will incorporate meditation practice, awareness of emotions, and skills drawn from the Alexander Technique.  Dan's personal experience with debilitating illness enables him to help others meet their experiences with curiosity, humor, and compassion. 

No experience is necessary.  Cushions and chairs will be provided.

  • $20 Students & Unemployed

QTPOC MEDITATION GROUP

IDP is happy to host the QTPoC Meditation Group.  This monthly community meditation space is specifically for queer & trans people of color (QTPoC), including all Indigenous LGBTQ2IA+ persons as we respect that we are meeting on Lenape territory.

Each month, we will explore different forms of meditation, including but not limited to mind-body connection, metta (loving-kindness), breath awareness, walking meditation (with seated movement options), sound healing, writing meditation, & traditional seated practice on a floor cushion or chair.

Together we also explore teachings of LGBTQ2IA+ people of color to have a deeper understanding of how mindfulness practice can help us heal from trauma, navigate oppression, and deepen our self-love.

All sessions are intended to be trauma-informed; please let us know if you have specific needs so that we may accommodate them.

Accessibility

The Interdependence Project is a secular space. We may refer to various spiritual teachings in our meditation group, but do not expect anyone to hold particular beliefs or to see the world in any one way.

We are in an elevator building, but please note the bathrooms are not wheelchair-accessible. Please email Maui Villapando for assistance with access. We ask that you do not wear scents to keep the space as scent-free as possible, although the building itself does not have such a policy.
