Description

We are no longer taking online registrations for this workshop.

The practice of yoga nidra is a pathway to meditation. In order to go beyond concentration, thoughts and perceptions of the sensual world must first be dissolved. Once the waking, intellectual mind ceases its usual activity, true meditation can occur.

In this weekend workshop, master teacher Glenn Black guides us in yoga nidra, also known as yogic sleep, helping us to prepare the body and mind for the spontaneous arising of meditation to occur. Through a variety of movements the body softens and the mind becomes calm. In shavasana (corpse pose) we move through the classical stages of yoga nidra.

As the usual obstacles that obscure a more pure and clear reality are brought forward, attachments to the ordinary world are gradually discarded. In addition to reducing stress, both mental and physical, yogra nidra helps us open up to and allow a new perspective of reality, one that the mind in its ordinary state cannot imagine.

This workshop includes movement that may be strenuous to some. During the weekend you will be expected to resist your usual addictions and impulses.

Black has been teaching yoga nidra for more than forty years. He relies on his intuition to help him guide groups through this intense process of reaching meditation, a condition of consciousness with thought.
