Meditation Posture Clinic: Letting Go of Perfection
December 1, 2016 @ 7:15 am - 8:45 pm$20
Often, meditators struggle to hold their sitting posture rigidly from the start of practice until the concluding bell. Fixating on an idealized position tends to increase pain and distraction. Many times, fear of losing the correct seat reinforces the feeling that they are practicing the wrong way. In this experiential workshop led by trained Alexander Technique teacher and meditator, Dan Cayer, you will learn to unravel the fixation that leads to a rigid sitting posture. By learning to acknowledge and even welcome the unceasing stream of sensations in your body, students will learn to recognize that that physical posture is a dynamic and ever-changing part of practice and life.
Dan Cayer is a nationally certified teacher of the Alexander Technique and a long-time meditator. After a serious injury left Dan unable to work or carry out household tasks like cleaning dishes, he began studying the Alexander Technique. His return to health, as well as his experience dealing with the physical, mental, and emotional aspects of pain, has inspired him to help others. Dan now teaches the Alexander Technique as a method of recovering balance and well-being. He advocates it as a fantastic embodiment of mindfulness and awareness both on and off the cushion.
