About the event

Today’s world is full of opportunities for distraction from tending to our life’s path.

None of us are immune, but why is distraction so tempting? When we allow ourselves to get distracted, what are we avoiding? Is there fear of what we might find?

The good news is that with every opportunity for distraction, there is an opportunity for return.

It takes heart to face our distractions, and admit to ourselves that we have the power to choose where we place our attention, moment to moment. We might call this dhāraṇā, the practice of focus or concentration. This aspect of yoga puts us in relationship with our agency to live a life we love.

Over two hours together, we will explore:

  • The senses and our ability to focus
  • The qualities of the mind through guided meditation
  • Some of the “pitfalls” to effective practice, from the yoga teachings
  • Tools from classical Tantra (such as mantra) to move beyond concepts and experience focus (dhāraṇā) in the body
  • A shorter Asana practice, suited to all levels

By bringing our attention to dhāraṇā – by focusing on focusing – we can encourage a more effective way of living that shows us what we are truly longing for, and allows us to stay focused on the life we value.

Join for a truly focused two hours to “get real” with our practice, in a supportive space held with gentle challenge and compassion. Come beneath the noise as we support each other to listen, to direct our attention in a way that benefits us, and to be the creators of our lives.
