JOYFUL AWAKENING: MEDITATION, EMBODIMENT, EXPRESSION

with Nina Wise, co-sponsored by Sukhasiddhi Foundation in Fairfax
Saturday, July 14, 10am–4:30 pm
Sukhasiddhi Foundation  |  771 Center Blvd  |  Fairfax, CA

In this daylong retreat, we will practice both silent meditation and robust creative self-expression. Contemplative practices and expressive practices enhance one another; in concert they quiet the mind, calm the heart, give rise to insight, happiness, and release our wildness.

The day will include stillness, movement, easy improv games and storytelling which together form a fully embodied spiritual practice.  Develop presence, enhance your capacity for spontaneity, have fun, and leave with tools you can apply to your personal and professional lives.

Sliding Scale $95–$145


MEDITATION AND THE SPIRIT OF CREATIVITY

with Nina Wise and others
September 10–16
Spirit Rock  |  5000 Sir Francis Drake Blvd, Woodacre

The focus of this retreat is on the dynamic principles of spiritual and creative unfolding: how meditation supports the creative process and how the creative process enlivens spiritual awakening. Alternating between stillness and creative activity provides fertile ground for the flowering of one’s unique expression.


DHARMA TALKS

A longtime student of mindfulness and non-dual spiritual practices, Nina teaches meditation and offers wisdom teachings. Her guidance, rather than following any doctrine, emerges from her direct experience of insight. 

 
 
For those who have known and watched Nina over the years, we are astonished every time she presents. She is not performing; she is not rehearsed. She witnesses and mirrors the sacred, the fabulous and the humane in real time.
