Virtual Event

The Play of Now – Distance and Connectedness

Sat 18th Sep : 10:00 am - Sun 19th Sep : 4:30 pm

Virtual Event
£25 – £90

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

A Dance of Meeting and Separation

We will use movement exercises, dance and meditation to support our practice. Openness, space and interconnectedness are present even when times are uncertain. This is the theme of improvisation: being in the unknown, and allowing ourselves to be moved not by our personal intention, but responding to life as it presents itself, now.

In this workshop, we will engage in meeting again through movement and meditation with a sense of curiosity, discovery and kind interest. We will meet, dance, sit and enjoy surprising depths and laughs in Playing in the Now.

See Jayachitta’s website for more information.
