    Supporting Your Practice: An Afternoon of Embodiment with David Hurwith

    Part 1 - Embodied Anatomy

    This class in Embodied Anatomy offers a sense of our organs such as the lungs, kidneys, stomach, and the liver. This work will help in supporting us, as we meditate. I will present anatomical information and exercises towards a direct experience of the viscera. This way of being offers the full support of the body's systems. We have an opportunity to listen to the mind of an organ within its function and add that consciousness to view and practice.

    Part 2 - Authentic Movement

    Authentic Movement - is it movement therapy? Perhaps Embodied Meditation? Yes and no. I can't tell you what Authentic Movement offers. It is an experience of something old that we all know.
    An internal self senses an environment where it is right to go deep without the divisions of body and mind or conscious and unconscious. In stillness and movement, there is a powerful opportunity to move and feel and understand the self in new ways.

    Cost: Sliding scale $45 - $85

    About the teacher: David Hurwith is a Somatic Movement Educator, artist and explorer. For the last 25 years he has been teaching Anatomy and Kinesiology, Authentic Movement and Improvisational Dance, most recently at the University of California, Santa Barbara and CalArts.

    How To Meditate On Ultimate Reality

    HOW TO MEDITATE ON ULTIMATE REALITY

    The Buddha taught that all suffering is caused by misunderstanding reality. To overcome that misunderstanding, truth seekers must learn to meditate on the ultimate nature of reality. Meditating on ultimate reality is exhilarating, but it can also be quite challenging. In these classes, two teachers who have each spent over 1,000 days in isolated meditation retreat will share essential techniques from the Mahayana Buddhist and Yoga Sutra lineages on how to meditate on wisdom that cures suffering.
    This class is intended for meditators with some experience, though beginners open to a wild ride are welcome.
