Yoga and the four noble truths
7 days retreat with Victoria Larsson
Time & Location
Oct 09, 2021, 3:00 PM – Oct 16, 2021, 10:00 AM
You don't have to be a Buddhist to benefit greatly from Buddhist psychology and practices. Even though the Buddha lived and taught over 2000 years ago, the human plight (read: mind) hasn't changed that much, meaning we can reap the same immense benefit from practicing that he did, and which eventually led him to become awakened.
Buddhism is not something to believe in, it is something to explore for yourself. Come see how these practices can help you lead a happier, kinder life. Good for you, good for others.
In our experience, yoga asana practice is often the ‘gateway drug’ into other aspects of yoga, that have even greater potential to change your experience of life.
We start by getting out of our heads and into the body. Then we move into concentration and contemplation practices. The idea is to actually show up for our lives, the way they are unfolding moment by moment. Here and now. And in the process becoming less anxious and less self-absorbed.
During the week we’ll practice vigorous flow yoga and meditation in the morning. The afternoon sessions will change from day to day. Sometimes we may practice yin or restorative yoga. At other times we might listen to, and discuss Buddhist teachings, or have longer meditations or group/partner work.
We'll have scheduled silences. Digital detox is highly encouraged. So is journaling.
