The Play of Now – Movement and Stillness in Crisis and Ease

Sat 21st Nov : 10:00 am - Sun 22nd Nov : 4:30 pm

Virtual Event
£25 – £90
The Play Of Now Poster: movement and stillness in crisis and ease

… everything is interconnected and nothing can ever really be ordinary – in the sense of being without deeper meaning – at all. Sangharakshita

Movement and Meditation

In this online workshop we will use movement exercises and meditation to support our practice in times of crisis. Openness can be present and give us stability, even when times are uncertain. Movement is there, even within restriction. Though isolated, we can experience that we and the world – other people and all of nature – are deeply connected and movement and engaging face to face can really help and heal us after this time.

Using improvisation we can move away from modes of relating based on control, on power over others, and find new ways to meet, be-with, allowing flow, and letting others, nature, diversity and life flow through us. See Jayachitta’s website for more information.

Programme for both days

10 am – Zoom meeting opens online
10.30 – 12.30 – Morning session with Jayachitta
2 – 4 pm – Afternoon session with Jayachitta
