Events with Alexis Santos

Trusting in the Natural Process of Body, Heart & Mind
September 2, 2019

In this retreat, we will have a week to explore cultivating ease and natural awareness. Alexis will be bringing his years of study and practice with Sayadaw U Tejaniya. Sebene will be bringing an orientation to embodied awareness that emphasizes our profound connection to land and nature. There will be periods of formal practice both indoors and on group hikes while allowing for plenty of non–structured periods of personal practice. The retreat will be held largely in silence with opportunities for relational practices towards the end of the week. No prior meditation or dharma experience is necessary.
