Spring Green Dojo
SomaticZen is a 6-day Zen intensive designed to explore, deepen, and broaden our embodiment of seated meditation (zazen). In between periods of zazen, we will use traditional Chozen-ji embodiment practices like tai chi and vocal resonance along with contemporary somatic and embodiment techniques such as TRE (Tension and Trauma Releasing Exercises), Yin Yoga, and awareness-through-movement practices as means to go deeper into our sitting. The program will follow a rigorous Zen intensive format with little sleep, little talking, and little downtime.
Open to intermediate level Zen or equivalent sitting style practitioners. Admission to the program begins with a short phone or Skype consultation with Alex to determine that the program is a good fit for the applicant. Martial arts gi or loose yoga clothes required.
$200 suggested donation to cover lodging and food.
