Program 

1.   “Nothing.” Our minds tend to be crowded by assumptions, worries, and judgments, with inevitable effects on our behaviors in daily life. We’ll practice a series of exercises that allow us to un-crowd our minds until “nothing is there.” Then we can start having fresh, useful, creative, constructive thoughts!

2.  Breathing. We’ll practice a series of exercises that help you breathe without even having to think about breathing.

3.   The Invisible Helper. The way you perceive yourself in space determines how big or small you are, how awkward or graceful, how healthy or wobbled. We'll practice a series of practical exercises that will change your self-perception and give you strength, breadth, width, and stability.

This workshop corresponds to module #5 in the INTEGRATED PRACTICE training.
