Now Online: Resting into the Body of Awareness
with Jill Satterfield
Sunday, June 14th, 2020 | 1:00pm – 4:00pm ET
With current unknowns and everyday life simultaneously surreal and familiar, it can be challenging to find the ground beneath our feet or know where to rest our minds.
Many ‘think’ that consciousness resides above the neck, but the body is an incredible source of awareness with consciousness residing in every cell. In the Anguttara Nikaya the Buddha shares with his Sangha, “There is one thing that cultivated and regularly practiced leads to a deep sense of urgency … to the supreme peace … to happiness here and now … It is mindfulness of the body.” Tapping into the somatic, felt sense of the body can ease us back and down towards the earth, into a natural emergence of kindness and intelligence, with deeper ease and relaxed open attention.
Through meditation, breath practices and a restorative posture to calm the central nervous system, we’ll explore somatically, compassionately and tenderly. Together, we’ll rejuvenate and resource the body of awareness to navigate our own ways home.
