Mashiv Nefesh and the Jerusalem Zen Center invite you to a unique retreat opportunity to develop and deepen your meditation practice and experience Sensory Awareness practice.
Both, buddhist practise and Sensory Awareness practise aim at realising our true nature and living in harmony with all things.
In this weekend retreat we will develop such awareness using various practices including sitting, walking meditation and Dharma talks as well as simple sensory experiments with movement, voice and touch to help us become more deeply attuned and responsive to the felt sensations and dynamics of gravity, breathing, balance, energy, movement and relationships with all kind of living beings and processes.
We will work indoors and also in the flowering garden of the Mashiv Nefesh Center in Clil.
Instruction will be given throughout the retreat,
