Half-Day Online Retreat
Awareness and Improv:
How Play Can Brighten the Present Moment
with Phoenix Soleil and Dawn Neal
February 12, 1:00 pm – 4:30 pm Eastern
Registration will close at noon the day before the event. A Zoom link will be sent that afternoon to all who are registered.
Nurturing wholesome states of mind is an important aspect of Buddhist practice. With the current state of the world, making time for fun, levity and silliness is a form of self-care, community and an openhearted act of creative change. Join us for a heart-centered adventure.
Often we think we need to sit still in order to be mindful, but we can be mindfully aware during the excitement, stress, and ups-and-downs of daily life. Play offers an opportunity to explore that with less on the line. In this half-day, we explore both sitting practice and improv sessions and bring awareness to a range of experiences.
This event interweaves formal meditation and improv in an accepting, encouraging, environment. We ask everyone to show up intending to participate fully. While we will be encouraging people to stretch into interpersonal play and presence, there will be an option to pass if a particular activity feels too risky. Due to the nature of this event participants are required to have video on and a device that allows them to see gallery view.
