All Day Intensive with Sarahjoy Marsh, $125

Morning: Coming to Our Senses
Afternoon: Are Harmony and Happiness Happenstance?
The Six Stations of the Mind outline the roadmap of potential mind habits. Addiction and self-harm are strategies both driven by and compelled to alleviate the anxious variations of the six stations (ie. past trauma, compulsive desire, heightened activation in response to aversions, a sense of self or other more steeped in shame and pain, fear of the unknown, and so on). Looking through the lens of yoga therapy, the behaviors make sense, though they also further compound the anxieties they’re meant to soothe. And they make more elusive the deep human hunger for love and belonging, hungers which we can consciously, artfully satiate when we allow ourselves to safely, curiously, compassionately feel into such hungers.
Please bring a mat. If you have 2 blocks and a strap, please bring them. A Chair will be available, if you don’t want to sit on the floor. Otherwise bring what you need to be comfortable on the floor.
There will be a lunch break. You may bring a lunch or go out to one of the nearby restaurants.
