In-person: Cultivating Right Effort – A Qigong and Insight Meditation Retreat with Mimi Kuo-Deemer

Fully Booked

Right effort is at the heart of the Buddha’s teachings. It’s called sammā vāyāma, which is part of the 8 Fold Path. It arises through awareness, embodiment and receptivity— qualities the Buddha described as helping us learn to choose kindness and compassion over hostility and ill-will.  Finding right effort can be tricky; too much effort and we feel depleted, not enough and we lack the motivation to choose. 

Using the Chinese energy-based practices of qigong, we will explore how we can embody right effort through intention-led movement, and translate this into deeper meditative awareness.  When we cultivate these qualities, we can open to a radical way of seeing reality that calms the mind and frees the heart.  

No prior qigong or meditation experience is required.
