Meeting What Matters Most: Sensory Awareness and Zen – Esalen
Lee Klinger Lesser and Marc Lesser
“In our world of busyness – of more, faster, better – this retreat offers time to stop, reflect, and renew. It is a time to step fully into the richness of our lives,” say the leaders. “Together we will follow a gentle schedule of exploration and sitting meditation interspersed with talks and discussions from the wisdom of Sensory Awareness and Zen teaching, as we uncover how these stories and dialogues may be utilized to meet what matters most in our relationships, our work, and our everyday lives.
“We will practice developing ways to integrate mindfulness into our lives. Sensory Awareness and Zen are practices through which we connect with our natural intelligence and vitality; we can discover what responds in us in the midst of change; and we can learn to rely on our sensations as guides to the fresh terrain of each moment.
“This workshop focuses on tools that help us to be present, tools that are antidotes to busyness and that support our ability to be in touch with what matters most. By slowing down and looking deeply, we can connect with our sensations and our deepest aspirations and find the freedom and open-heartedness that are our birthright.”Meeting What Matters Most
