Join us to share experiences and insights together with other Dharma students in a virtual weekly meetup. This April, we will begin reading The Wakeful Body, a practical and approachable guide to somatic meditation with easy practices for accessing the body’s inherent mindfulness and wisdom. The book is by Willa Blythe Baker, who completed two consecutive three-year retreats in the Vajrayana Buddhist tradition and is an accomplished scholar and teacher as well.

The book is available through Amazon and other booksellers.

This program is led by Silvia M. Yueh, who is a long-time student of His Holiness the Sakya Trichen and is an accredited teacher of T’ai Chi Chih.
