This practice is free to the community. Naropa Faculty, staff, students, Alumni and friends are encouraged to explore this inspiring Naropa Heritage practice developed by Barbara Dilley. 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 writing/drawing reflections and a closing circle For sharing and observations.

Drop-in’s are welcome. No experience required. Just a willingness to tune in, play and be in the present moment.
