Mudra Space Awareness Practice (Berkeley)
August 27, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm$15
Much of the time, we don’t relate to the body, even when it is crying out for our attention. Instead of relating to our actual body, we tend towards what Chogyam Trungpa called “psychosomatic body” — where we think about our bodily experience, rather than actually feeling embodied. This process is one of the main ways we disconnect from experience.
Mudra Space Awareness is a powerful mind-body meditative discipline unique to the Shambhala lineage, and is rarely taught or practiced. This workshop will introduce Mudra to those not familiar, and deepen it for those that are.
In 2005, Greg Heffron apprenticed with senior Mudra Space Awareness teacher Craig Smith, and become authorized to teach this unique mind-body meditation technique. Since that time, he has taught Mudra Space Awareness around North America and Europe. In 2007, Smith and Heffron taught this practice in a workshop for fourth year students in the Dance Division at The Juilliard School in New York City. Heffron owns and manages Green Zone Institute where he teaches mindful communication with Acharya Susan Chapman.
