Concentration appears in many of the lists of core Buddhist teachings. In this daylong we will explore cultivating concentration & tranquility through movement and stationary practices. This exploration is intended to help open doors to a number of paths for developing concentration, a key factor in the teachings for liberation.
Note: The accessible T’ai Chi Chih movement practice will be demonstrated both seated and standing and can be adapted to lying down.
nialla rose is a certified Tai Chi Chih teacher. Her Zen Buddhist practice is in the tradition of Thich Nhat Hanh, the Order of Interbeing. She shares dharma within movement to various sanghas and other groups, in particular to people with cancer.
