Meditation workshop with Bhante Sujatha in our Arlington Heights Location: How to heal your wounded mind and heart

 

Connect with your natural healing power with the gentle guidance of Bhante Sujatha, Buddhist monk from Blue Lotus Temple in Woodstock, IL.  This ­2 hour workshop has been transformative for many of its participants, regardless of

religious background.

 

This workshop will explore the practice of loving kindness and allow you to awaken to the blessings of the present moment.  Loving Kindness is an attitude of recognizing that all beings can feel good or bad - it is a choice.  Through practice, you will know that metta (loving kindness) is an attitude rather than just a feeling and learn how to cultivate these feelings within the deepest reaches of the heart. Bhante’s gentle guidance will allow you to realize that meter is a recognition of the most basic solidarity that we have with others, this sharing of a common aspiration to find fulfillment and escape suffering.

 

Bhante Sujatha will help you to realize that happeness has to depend on action: for people to find true happiness, they have to understand the causes for happiness and act on them.  Do you wish to find ultimate happiness and gain a sense of empowerment over challenging issues in your life?  If you are interested in reducing stress, anxiety, worry and depression, all while gaining insight into your life’s purpose, please join us for this workshop and attain unshakable inner peace.  Come find your happiness!

 

Space limited. Advanced registration required - Fee $35 a portion of the proceeds go to the Bhante Incubator Project

Focusing on the upper body: neck, shoulders upper and lower back.

(part of the 300 hour teacher training, & open to all students of yoga.) Eligible for 6 hours CE credits.

 

The first 3 hours of the workshop is tailored to students and teachers. The second part of the workshop is tailored for teachers, although students are welcome to attend both sessions

 

Have you ever been in a yoga class, the teacher calls out a pose you cannot do, and you spend your time sitting and watching the rest of the class? Early on when I started practicing yoga, I wanted to learn how I could still feel part of the class, how I could modify the poses for my own body and limitations. I spent many years documenting what was the 'action' required to get into the pose, then creatively put together my own modifications so that I could still benefit from the pose. Students: use this knowledge to take action to progress in your yoga practice in a safe, well thought-out way. Teachers: learn how to use this valuable tool to serve a broader customer base. Using precise alignment techniques. Come dressed in yoga clothing, be prepared to work through an array of poses.

 

(Students will be encouraged ahead to email me prior to the workshop with a list of poses you find challenging)

 

The second part of the workshop is tailored for teachers, although students are welcome to attend both sessions. Choose first and second half if you intend to do all 6 hours.

 

First Half: Fee $62.50
