Awakening Through the Body: Your Body as a Gateway to Insight

Laura Dorsett Online via Zoom

Laura Dorsett

2/4/2021 7:30 PM - 8:30 PM (ET/U.S. and Canada, Thursdays)  at  Online via Zoom (Virtual) (Map It)

8 Thursdays, February 4–March 25

This 8-week course is ideal for beginning and experienced meditators who have struggled with body image, addiction, or who simply wish to bring more compassion into their experience of the body.  

The body never lies.  It serves as a powerful indicator of where we go unconscious: the ways in which we have learned to withhold love and care from the truth of our experience.  When we deny our truth through judging ourselves, blaming others, or ‘checking out’ through distraction or addiction, our repressed truths continue to live with us in our bodies, causing pain.  

Bringing loving awareness into the body opens a powerful gateway to truth and insight. The body can then become a loving ally in your awakening, a trusted source of and vehicle for intuitive insight, wisdom, and truth to move in your life.  

In addition to (8) 1-hour weekly classes, the course includes: guided meditations and practice exercises to do at home; online community sharing and support during the week; weekly inspirational reading; recordings of all dharma talks; pre- during- and post-course guidelines for maximizing your course experience.

Note: Because this is an online retreat, participants are encouraged to find space of relative quiet, limiting the amount of interaction with others in the environment as much as possible. Participants may join by internet or via phone. 

Participants will be given the Zoom link in the registration confirmation email and again via email the week before the course begins.
