Contemplative movement practice brings together the discipline of sitting meditation with free movement investigations and the practice of improvisation. It is an opportunity to integrate our outer and inner worlds, alone and together. The 2 1/4 hour practice is structured by a leader who marks the time with a meditation bell. It begins with sitting meditation followed by personal body/mind awareness practice in the space and then the wild and delightful group practice called "open space" where Deep play unfolds!
Each session concludes with a closing circle for discussion and observations. Drop-ins are welcome. No experience required. Just a willingness to tune in, play and be in the present moment.
Since this practice is outside, please bring your own seating (backpack, gomden,…) and be prepared for all weather and sun. Enter the gate at the northwest corner of the building.
Facilitated by Darlene Lorrain and Sara Benson. The practice is free to the community with suggested donations to Naropa University for the use of the space.
