Understanding Body, Language, and Mind in the time of Pandemic

The Lotus Vision explores the best way to use body, language and mind: to encourage their cooperation. The working well together of body, language and mind is a special challenge and opportunity during this unprecedented time of change and upheaval. Often we give control over our lives to one above the other: body, or language, or mind. But when mind cooperates with body, body cooperates with mind. Carried by language, joy and transformation are possible. Through these human vehicles we can transmit and transform what we have, what we are, and what we can know.

Meaningful Journey

Seemingly simple, mind and body are our gateways to experience.
Do we understand them at all? This weekend workshop will provide an introduction.

Chris Fernie has been teaching qigong and body mechanics full time for over 28 years.The practice focuses on vitality and clarity through energetic development.

Richard Dixey has been teaching non dual perception since 1978 in the Western esoteric and Buddhist traditions. What is mind, and how does it construct our experience of reality? In this first weekend we will look at the role of language, the construction of the ego and how conception colors perception.
