All over the world, in every culture and tradition, people engage in mind-body practices (meditation, prayer, therapy, movement, martial arts, inquiry, art practice and so on) that change how they relate to themselves and the world around them. For four Wednesdays in February, I will be hosting a special edition of the Consciousness Explorers Club at the Harmony Hotel in Nosara, Costa Rica. Each evening, a different guest teacher will lead us through a different healing and training modality. We’ll have a guided experience of that practice, and then we’ll discuss together the practice’s effects, how it seems to work, and why.
Some guiding questions for our exploration: What is a practice, anyway? What qualities of mind and heart and body are trained in different practices, and where is there difference and overlap? How do these practices help us and challenge us? Are there limitations to a particular practice that we should know about? And finally, how can we bring the unique gifts of each practice into the rest of our lives?
Ultimately, the intention of this month is to empower each of us to be our own teacher, to find the right practice for us at the right time – or to create the right practice based on a deeper understanding of the healing dynamics of consciousness. Come join us in this learning adventure!
