Tea with Your Demons

A Yoga Workshop

Thursday, December 27 through Sunday, December 30, 2018

“One evening Milarepa returned to his cave after gathering firewood, only to find it filled with demons. They were cooking his food, reading his books, and sleeping in his bed. They had taken over the joint! He did not know how to get these guys out of his cave.” retold by Pema Chodron


Embrace the New Year with Yoga. This year for the Year-end immersion workshop, we will practice having tea with our demons.  This is from a number of stories in Buddhism. One story is told about Milarepa, a famous teacher in Tibet. Milarepa was an anchorite living in a cave, hoping to gain enlightenment. However, one day he found himself besieged by demons who would no go away. Even though he had a suspicion they were all the unwanted parts of himself—he did not know how to get rid of them.  Often we think we can get rid of our demons by pushing them away or ignoring them. But what if we, like Milarepa ended up doing–inviting them for tea?

What if we used our practice of yoga as way of learning to have tea? So for our immersion we will practice using the tools of  yoga asana, breath, meditation, and deep relaxation, to be with our own demons.

 

“through spiritual practice we are learning to make friends with ourselves, … at the most profound level possible.”

Take this opportunity to enrich your own practice with four consecutive days of yoga classes. This yoga workshop will be tailored for practicing students of all levels of yoga. The classes will include a study of postures, breath, and meditation to aid students in the enhancement of their personal practice.  Though it is not necessary to attend all classes in succession, best results will come with sustained attendance. All classes will be taught by Mark Watson founder of The Yoga Path.

Who Should Attend: Anyone currently practicing yoga or attending yoga class, seeking to foster or enhance their own personal practice.
