Many Buddhist practitioners spend significant periods of time sitting, however sitting is sometimes an uncomfortable or painful experience. The Feldenkrais method offers insights into the habits which cause pain and the strategies to change those habits. The Art of Sitting day is a range of comprehensive Feldenkrais classes involving small, mindful movement sequences designed to explore posture and body awareness and the lessons are mostly done lying down.
There will be time for individual problem solving and exploration of the many options for comfortable sitting. Saturday 8th December 9:00am - 3:30pm, held at the Wellbeing Centre at Chenrezig Institute. Facility fee $75
Established 1974, Chenrezig Institute is a centre for Buddhist study, meditation, retreat and practice nestled in the foothills of the Sunshine Coast Hinterland. The Institute is home to a Tibetan Geshe (Lama), a large community of ordained Sangha (monks and nuns), students, residents, volunteers, retreat goers and guests.
Apart from the formal study programmes, Chenrezig Institute is a peaceful, calm and relaxing place to spend a few hours, days or weeks. Stroll along the bush paths, wander in formal garden, espresso in the cafe or a vegetarian meal.
