Spaces of Belonging

Connection and healing in a temporary, urban refuge.

Through the practices of sharing, caring, guided meditation, Zen sitting and walking meditation, Yin Yoga, and Yoga Nidra, we will practice slowing down and resting in the here and now with a receptive heart. In a shared space, we will have time to explore what spaces of belonging mean to each one of us. We will slow down to notice the quiet and safe space within all of us. Guided meditations as well as silent Zen sitting and walking meditations will help us calm the nervous system. We will practice Yin Yoga and Yoga Nidra to give our bodies a good stretch and deep relaxation.

Dates: October 16, November 06, December 05, 3-6pm. The class will take place live as well as online. You can participate in one or more dates.

Please register by email: info@akazienzendo.de

25€ regular income
