Loving kindness can be generated from the mind and heart, it can also be invited and sustained in the body. The body is where we sense, feel, and know emotions.
Love, kindness, generosity, and joy is invited and held in space and softness. Spaciousness and softness in the body is cultivated and like all things, what we repeat we become.
A Body of Kindness: Generating Compassion Somatically – In Person at The Tibet House NYC: June 8
Loving-kindness and compassion can be generated from the mind and heart; they can also be invited and sustained in the body. The body is where we sense, feel, and know emotions.
Love, kindness, generosity, and joy are created and held within space and softness. Spaciousness and expansiveness in the body are cultivated and can become an embodied state easily called into the experience. By attending to the subtle and bodily sense of compassion, it can be conditioned to be abided in more often than not.
During this workshop, we’ll practice mindfulness, meditation, visualization, breathing, and lying down in restorative postures to invite, feel and experience practical ways to make somatic room for the heart to expand and be readily receptive to compassion, kindness, and joy.
A sample of what we’ll be exploring in the workshop.
- Mindfulness of breath concentrated in the skull and pelvic floor diaphragms.
- The central channel and its benefits for mental, physical, and emotional well-being.
- The attributes and physiological effects of imagination.
- Interoception/inner awareness and the psychological and emotional benefits of being embodied.
