This session is an embodied, compassionate exploration through our body-mind-heart into life.

The door is open. What we long for is already there. This practise invites you to undo and deeply rest into the wonder of an receptive presence.

BY LAL DED, TRANSLATED BY JANE HIRSHFIELD:
I was passionate,
filled with longing,
I searched
far and wide.

But the day
that the Truthful One
found me,
I was at home.
