Day I: On Language and Vortices, Boundaries and Intimacy

- On listening practices, how to teach focused classes, your teaching voice, remixing inspirations, and creating a vision for your teaching. A fresh look at anatomy for structural integrity, organ function and mental health.

Day 2: On Design, Presence and Leadership
- On designing our attitudes, and our emotional stances. On presence as both means and aim.
- On Love as leadership, “seeing” as leadership, discussion of neurology, and shared expression.
SPECIAL EVENT: RADIANCE
WITH ELENA BROWER, JULIE SMERDON, PETE LONGWORTH AND SI MULLUMBY
FRIDAY 24th FEBRUARY 2017 | 7-9.30PM
The simple moments of daily life are sacred, and our senses of perception are Divine. Yoga and meditation are ways of refining our innate fullness and cultivating a love affair with life. Delighting in the dance of energy in our bodies, being carried away by music, the textures, sounds and scents of life can fill us on every level of our being if we nurture the art of paying attention. Join Elena Brower, Julie Smerdon, Pete Longworth and Si Mullumby on the stunning Queensland Terrace at the State Library on Southbank for a movement, music and sensory extravaganza in celebration of the sacred moments of life. Sprinkled with Lorin Roche’s Radiance Sutras and accompanied by live music, this will be an unforgettable, all-levels event designed to leave you brimming with the joy of being madly in love with life.
**This event will be held at the Cultural Centre: On the Queensland Terrace at the State Library
