Retreats and Workshops
Throughout the year both workshops and day-long retreats will be scheduled. Retreats and workshops are suitable for beginner and experienced practitioners. Workshops are typically two hours in length, while day-longs run between 10am till 4pm.
Day-longs include teachings on formal and informal mindfulness practices, relational mindfulness, walking meditations, cultivating positive emotions, and working with negative emotions.
Life in Crossroads: Cultivating Borderland Consciousness
To “survive the borderlands”, Anzaldua reminds us, “you must live sin fronteras” (without borders). We will examine how ordinary material culture from our family artifacts/archives (like a photo) can facilitate a diasporic borderland consciousness.
This workshop complicates notions of home, homeland, exile, place and displacement. In its wake a gesture towards diasporic and nomadic sensibilities arise. Sensibilities that can reveal a deep-well of agency, power, and imaginary.
This event/workshop is sponsored by UCLA’s Mindfulness Awareness Research Center (MARC). To register visit: https://www.uclahealth.org/marc/workshops
