Meditation Mini-Retreat: Tools for Opening the Heart (In-Person)


  • $40.00


Alejandro Chaoul
Saturday, Apr 27
1 - 5pm CT

Learn tools for opening our hearts using different methods, including awareness of breath, visualization, sound, and movement.


Discover how the Tibetan understanding of well-being can enrich our mind-body practices, and our everyday lives. In the face of difficulties – a decision we don't want to make, a conversation we might be dreading – it's natural to feel threatened, and to want to feel safe. Sometimes, we accomplish this by hiding our deepest needs from ourselves and others – by closing our hearts – even when the changes we want mean when we need to bring those needs into the light. Join us as we learn tools for opening our hearts using different methods, including awareness of breath, visualization, sound, and movement. Together, we will take time to integrate the sense of completeness developed through these practices through group practice and discussion.

This program is being offered IN-PERSON, and will NOT be recorded.

All times are CT. Please contact with any questions.

Please register early. Programs with four or fewer participants are subject to cancellation, 48 hours prior to their start.
