Half-Day of practice on Saturday June 11 doing mindful movement and contemplating some Rumi Poems with Jim Dalton. For instance:
If you want to change the ways others treat you, you should first change the way you treat yourself, fully and sincerely, there is no way you can be loved.
Once you achieve that stage, however, be thankful for every thorn that others might throw at you.
It is a sign that you will soon be showered in roses.
~Forty rules of love
“There is a candle in your heart, ready to be kindled.
There is a void in your soul, ready to be filled.
You feel it, don't you?”
Bring a friend to learn some new forms in QiGong and bring a snack to share. We'll start at 10am and plan to finish by 2pm. We will sit in silence, contemplate more Rumi poems, and practice doing QiGong. Staying grounded in the body while soaring with the spirit of Rumi is an excellent way to spend 4 hours.
