with Rebecca Lerner
Spring is a time where traditionally we created fertile conditions in our fields for new life, in the form of seeds, to emerge from darkness to illumination. Our body, the field and the instrument; asana, the auspicious seeds; pranayama, the nourishing energy of water and sunlight. A fertile harvest feeds not only us but our family, community and the world. The fruits of our practice come from a combination of hard work (abhyasa – practice), patience and the ability to see opportunity in every seed (vairagya – detachment).
Join Rebecca for a weekend of “spring planting” – creating the right conditions in the body and mind for the seeds of knowledge, devotion and illumination to grow.
