Michael Stone gives a focused and detailed thought about meditation technique and using your body to develop concentration. He goes through meditations on sound, the nostrils, the belly and approaching the objects of meditation with sthira (steadiness) and sukkha (well-being). A fascinating retreat talk that gets precise about meditation skills. 45 minutes. Chapin Mill, Batavia New York.
In the last few years, rigid approaches to yoga practices have been replaced by a more exploratory approach to movement and evidence-based understandings of how the body heals, strengthens, and stretches. Following his annual 5-day intensive format, Michael has joined with Kathryn Bruni Young to offer a re-exploration of yoga (movement, breathing, psychology, philosophy) starting from the ground up.
