Come dwell in the luminous world of the Radiance Sutras, a poetic, sensuous version of an ancient meditation text for touching the sacred in the midst of daily life. These sutras sing of passionate serenity in which all your senses are alive to the vibrancy of the world with a foundation of inner centeredness.
The Radiance Sutras offer 112 gateways into meditation, including cherishing the flow of breath, gazing at the beauty of nature, listening to music, dancing, embracing emotion, making love, and many more.
This 5-day workshop offers you an immersion and training in this liberating, life-affirming approach to meditation. In alignment with the tradition of Tantra Yoga, meditation will be guided as a release into wonder and freedom with emphasis on naturalness and being at home in your body and the world.
This week as you dive into meditation and the sutras you will:
- Explore a range of sitting, reclining, and moving meditations that anyone can do
- Renew yourself deeply and discover ways to meditate that you love and can take home
- Receive artful guidance from Dr. Lorin Roche and Camille Maurine, two beloved and experienced teachers of inner practices and a dynamic duo of male and female wisdom.
Those seeking training will gain 25 contact hours toward full certification in this approach.
Lorin Roche, PhD
Lorin Roche began meditating in a physiology lab at the University of California in 1968 and immediately fell in love with the practice. He began teaching meditation in 1970 and earned his doctorate from University of California, Irvine for his work on the subjective experience of meditation.
He trains meditation teachers worldwide and specializes in helping people customize individual meditation practices to align with their unique nature. Rather than imposing a standardized, one-size-fits-all model, he has drawn on insights from the best of Western science and Eastern yoga to create his own approach called Instinctive Meditation.
Lorin is the author of several books, including Meditation Made Easy, The Radiance Sutras: 112 Gateways to the Yoga of Wonder and Delight, and, with his wife Camille Maurine, Meditation Secrets for Women: Discovering Your Passion, Pleasure, and Inner Peace.View Bio PageCamille Maurine
