Knowing Experience from the Inside Out
A Yin Yoga and Insight Meditation Workshop with Jonathan Reynolds
Cost: Suggested Donations: $10-$30 – 100% proceeds benefit Children’s Community Center, Berkeley’s oldest cooperativepre-school established in 1927.
In this extended practice period we’ll use the tools of yin yoga and vipassana (insight) meditation, each in an effort to awaken to the seed of all experience, embodied presence itself. Pairing these two practices will support us in setting the stage for a sensitive and wakeful yin practice period. Our time being with sensation physically will help to soften and prepare the body for seated meditation in subtle, yet distinct and nurturing ways. Please bring a yoga mat, and also a cushion and/or blanket (studio may provide all three).
We’ll practice yin yoga for approximately ninety minutes, and then conclude our time in seated meditation – some investigative instruction will be offered, although there will also be plenty of spacious silence to practice the art of deep inner and kind listening. Throughout our entire practice period, we will hold a space that is ‘respectfully curious’, and that is wonderfully innocent and open to what might naturally emerge on our own unique paths to greater awakening.
