Embodying the Open Ground Practice Day



Tuition: $108

Time: 9:00am-6:00pm MDT (see schedule below)

Location: Offered via Zoom

Spend the day exploring the deep wisdom of the body as it reveals a natural path to non-dual awareness.

This path of practice, developed by Dr. John Churchill over the last two and a half decades, is inspired by the embodied meditative approaches of the Indo-Tibetan traditions.

Grounded in a non-dual yogic understanding of body, breath, and consciousness this approach to practice calms the mind, and opens one to the heartfelt ground of being while simultaneously healing the deep split between mind and body that makes stabilization of recognition easier. This practice leads us from identification with the reactivity of the personality to the realization of our essence as a vast ocean of awareness; love that transcends and includes this body and mind. 

Meditation then becomes not only a formal practice but also a way of living and viewing the world, which informs the whole of how we live, work, and love. 

These body meditations are unique, and offer students an easy path to living the unitive life.

The format for the day will mimic the style of the week-long retreats. There will be multiple sitting sessions with pointing out instructions and individual guidance and feedback from John.
