Body as the Vehicle for Insight
Half Day With Megan Cowan
Saturday October 3, 2015
10:00am – 1:30pm
Many of us come to practice for the promise of less suffering. Given that much of our suffering is experienced as intense or overwhelming emotions, we make great efforts to learn how to navigate them with awareness. One of the great realizations we can have is that emotions cannot ultimately be seen through via thinking, evaluation, or analysis. But, it is hard to let go of this strategy. This workshop will focus on accessing our emotional experience as it manifests in our body. We will explore the physical realities of emotions, and look at the relationship between the mental and physical experience.

Megan’s root training is in Theravada Buddhism, beginning in 1996. Deeply drawn to the exploration of our inner-world she spent many years in and out of intensive silent retreats, as well as two and a half years ordained as a Buddhist nun. Many other traditions and modalities have also influenced her practice and teaching, and she is endlessly interested in people’s entry points to presence. She currently is the Co-founder and Program Director at Mindful Schools, a non-profit bringing secular mindfulness training to students and educators. She finds great joy in sharing this practice with others, encouraging peace in our world.
