Event Details:

Seven principles of actualizing the benefits of somatic contemplative practice is the focus of this lecture and 3-session interactive workshop series by Teja Bell on Oct. 13, 14 and 16. The somatic practices of Buddhist and Daoist arts contribute exceptional value to meditators as a way of integrating and realizing the insights of Mindfulness meditation.  

The practice of Mindfulness is central to contemplative practitioners in many traditions.  The modern fields of psychology and neuroscience recognize Mindfulness for stress management and trauma work. 

"Integrating Embodied Mindfulness" weaves qigong and insight as a pathway to radiant well-being and the direct revelation of our Universal nature.

Oct. 13, Establishing the Foundations for a Supportive and Flourishing Qigong Practice

Oct. 14, The Skill of Whole Body Breathing and Synchronous Movement

Oct. 16, Deepening the Profound Integration of Spirit, Mind and Body
