Awakening to What Is: Silent Meditation Retreat
With Rabbi David Cooper, Shoshana Cooper and Eliezer Sobel
December 19 - 26, 2010
Whether you are a beginning or advanced student of meditation, deepen your moment-to-moment awareness in the “friendly” silence at this longtime popular retreat. Enjoy peace of mind and awaken to the boundless nature of “being present” through silent sitting, chanting, walking meditations, insight dialogue and inquiry, and wisdom teaching from Zoharic, Hasidic, Zen and Dzogchen sources.
Eliezer Sobel will also offer 5 Rhythms™ movement sessions. Developed by Gabrielle Roth, the 5 Rhythms™ work is a dancing path of healing, a moving meditation that calls the spirit into physical form and propels each unique body—no matter what size or shape—toward its own destiny. This introduction to the fundamental 5 Rhythms™ will beckon us forward through the obstacles of inertia and resistance to change, taking us on a highly personal journey toward an inner stillness, pulsating aliveness and naked mystery. No prior dance experience or skills required; only your sole.
