Wisdom, Love and Presence: Awakening the Three Centers of Head, Heart and Belly
 
with Martin Aylward
 
Sunday, September 8th, 2019 | 10:00am – 5:00pm
 

 

Join visiting teacher Martin Aylward for a day of teachings and practices for activating and exploring the 3 principal centers of experience: the Belly centre of embodiment, where we learn to inhabit our experience ever more fully; the Heart centre of love, where we free up our undigested emotional life, and open to ever deepening care, joy and spaciousness; and the Head centre of intuition and wisdom, where we learn to disengage from habitual and counterproductive thought patterns, and train the deeper capacities of mind.

The day will include guided and silent meditation practice, explorations with the teacher and inquiry exercises.
