When: Fri., July 17, 5 p.m. 2015
Through July 19. This retreat is intended to go beyond the conventional approach to running as exercise. We’ll discuss intention to understand why we run, since this will very much determine if and how we do it. Then we’ll look at posture, breath, and cadence to see how these can improve our experience of this art. Finally we’ll explore running as a moving meditation. Using various exercises, visualizations, and Q&A sessions, we’ll recognize that when taken up as a spiritual practice, this whole-body-and-mind discipline has the power to help us be awake in other aspects of our lives.
