Note: This workshop runs once per month from January through June. 

We meditate for many reasons: to uncover our inherent goodness, raise self-awareness and acceptance, and discover new levels of connection and consciousness, among others. Yet in our practice of “mindfulness,” we often forget the crucial role of the body in experiencing personal growth, connection, and insight - both on the cushion and in everyday life.

​In this workshop, individual or group exercises will introduce the Alexander Technique, a 100-year-old holistic system of body awareness and movement re-education. Hands-on movement explorations, body-based guided meditations, and practical tips will help you to find the balance of awareness and relaxation so that you can meditate with more comfort and advance your practice.

The Alexander Technique even provides an avenue for imparting an experience of "emptiness" in an embodied, direct, and non-conceptual way.

The workshop will feature hands-on guidance and instruction by Joseph Arnold, as well as instruction by Alexander deVaron. The registration cap for each workshop is nine people.

Joseph Arnold is an Alexander Technique teacher and musician, and lives in Philadelphia. He has taught Alexander Technique as a part of Shambhala meditation programs, including at the Urban Retreat.
