The Tapestry of Breathing

The Thin Thread of Meditation


Sunday 21st July
Time: 12:00-3:00pm
Investment: $75 (20% discount for members)
Teacher: Peter Cohen

Work with Peter to create a personalised tapestry of breath practices. Then weave moving poses onto your breath tapestry.

We will definitely be moving… gentle power while upright… resonating onto the ground.

This practice becomes a nervous system experience that can reveal the thin thread of consciousness in meditation. This was the intention of the yogis who shared hatha yoga.

Yet how varied could this practice be? How personal can we make it? Can you do it at home? How long do you really need?

In this workshop, hatha yoga becomes vipassanā meditation (insight). Peter will share from his experiences in the Buddhist lineage:
The most important single rule of meditation
The profundity of meditation without objects (Dzogchen)
Options for calm-abiding preparatory practices

Deep Rest Ritual

Saturday 27th July
Time: 7:30-9:45pm
Investment: $50 (20% discount for members)
Teacher: Ling Tan

Deep Rest Ritual

Allow yourself to be HELD in conscious rest; deep rest in the nervous system, deep rest in the heart.

You’ll be held in meditation, pranayama (breathing practices), yin & restorative movement, yoga nidra (yogic sleep), reiki, essential oils and candlelight.

Guide : Ling
Sat : 27 July, 7.30-9.45pm
Investment : $50

Resting in awareness, we will recharge from a state of depletion to a higher frequency.

All welcome, no experience required. Two hours of stretching, breathing, resting. Option to stay for tea and nibbles at the end. Bring your journal or paper and pen; as the heart tends to speak when the mind gets quiet.
