Providing a refuge in the heart of Santa Cruz

The Original Body Scan:
32 Parts of the Body

Wednesdays, Jan 18 – Mar 8
6:30pm – 8:30pm PT

This practice deepens insight into impermanence and non-self by penetrating into the true nature and wonders of the body. We will also explore how the body interrelates with the four primary elements of earth (solidity), air (motion), fire (temperature), and water (liquidity).

This methodical practice of the 32 Parts of the Body Meditation can build immense levels of concentration, potentialities for healing, and experience the taste of deep freedom and peace.
