Asana + Acupuncture with Xochi John and Erika Andersen

In this workshop, Xochi will first lead a gentle Yoga sequence informed by the Alexander Technique principle of good use. This framework offers space and time to recognize areas of excess tension in our mind-body-self as a means to experience ease and energy in movement. In the final restorative pose, Erika will offer community acupuncture as a time to experience our inner sense of self. We hope you will join us in this exploration of energy within movement and stillness. $40 (sliding fee scale is available). Pre-registration required:https://mettaacupuncture.as.me/asana-acupuncture.

Public talk by Flint Sparks, PhD (HUB)

Open to the public

The best definition of success has nothing to do with money or fame. It is the ability to deliberately change one's character. If we pay attention to the thoughts that shape our actions and the actions that shape our habits and the habits that shape our character, we'll find that character is what shapes our destiny. Join us for an opportunity to reflect on how the reality of death, the clear necessity for shaping our character, and the illusive sense of destiny weave together as life.

In the current social and political climate we must turn our attention and our practices toward calling forward the best in all of us. Our basic sanity is the ground of our being. How do we manifest this in our own lives, our closest relationships, and professional activities and encourage each other in a world that does not always seem to reward wholesome character?

$15 to attend public talk only on Wednesday evening

$150 to attend entire workshop ($95 if attending the 3 day retreat to follow this workshop. To register contact Suzanne Kilkus, heartspace@charter.net)

Flint Sparks is a former psychologist and an ordained Zen Buddhist priest from Austin Texas and a guiding teacher to Open Door Zen Community (https://opendoorzencommunity.org) in Madison. His teaching and consulting activities bridge the fields of health psychology, the psychology of contemplative practices, and traditional Zen Buddhist practice. His engaging and wholehearted presence bring light and clear thought to this subject matter. He has been offering retreats, workshops and public talks in Madison for many years and we are delighted to welcome him here again.

CANCELLED: Bring More Ease to Your Winter (EMBODY)

During this season, you may feel as if you have been running on empty. Things may feel harder than you’d like them to feel: work, the political situation, your home life. 

Come to this workshop to learn techniques, practices and approaches that will help you shift this feeling, and find a bit more ease in your life.

We’ll talk about how to identify and shift the beliefs and thoughts that are amplifying your stress level, and replace them with thoughts that decrease it. You’ll learn ways to listen to what your body and your intuition is telling you so that your decision-making will be easier. We’ll end with a guided meditation to help you tap into the peace and knowledge that you already possess. 

You’ll leave with a list of resources and ideas to help you continue these practices.
