Tuning In (Together): Embodied Awareness Circle. A small group of (new or seasoned) meditators and movers will receive support and guidance in the experience of the rich exchange between sitting with the breath, moving with the breath, and witnessing in language, gesture, sound, or visual image.

If stairs are an obstacle for you, let me know ASAP and we will move to an alternate space in midtown for our group, which has a ramp.) Cost is Sliding Scale: all 5 for $95-$75-$30 scholarship level. Pay registration here: paypal.me/tuningintogether Bring: Favorite sitting or reclining props, and any props you like to use for self-expression (pen/paper/music-makers and the like.)
Sessions are structured so that you can drop in and ride the practice. We start with an all-self warm-up, move to stillness, into witnessing, exploration, and feedback, and end with REST. Yes. You want to go home feeling grounded and soft. We will end every session with a 10 minute savasana (rest pose.)
This is a closed group, which means no drop-ins, though it is okay to miss 1-2 sessions. I appreciate advance notice when you will miss. Class size is limited to 10, so please reserve by June 4. If you know someone who you think could benefit, please have them email me at email@example.com so I may do a short interview to make sure it's a good fit.
