2018 Sydney Intensives with Caroline Coggins

 

Annual Spring Intensive with Caroline Coggins

September 21, 22 & 23

Zen practice says this:

In search for the Bull.
‘First we search for the Bull, in the pleasure of the world, endlessly push aside tall grasses in search for the bull.
Following unnamed rivers, lost upon the interpenetrating paths of distant mountains, My strength failing and my vitality exhausted, I cannot find the bull. I hear only the locusts chirring through the forest at night.’

We are all looking for the purpose/meaning of our life… that’s what animates our days and sometimes  riddles our nights with anxiety.

But we are beginners,  we don’t know how to see or what to look for. We may assume that we do, because we go from one thing to another, with degrees of pleasure and happiness but most often disappointment.

Will doing yoga be any different? The interesting thing is we think it is about how the thing, and when it ceases to satisfy or amuse we get a bit lost.

Yoga says ‘no!’ … it is your soul which is getting rubbed, not the activity, so look there. Yoga is a tool, you are the subject matter.

This Zen saying is also speaking  to this, it is us we are learning to work with, we are learning to track our footprints, bring ourselves into hand, yet much in our world gives us no hint of how or what that looks like. ‘

This is our yoga path and  she wants to wake us from the slumber of our dull and automatic mind.
She is not interested if whether you are flexible or stiff, old or young, beautiful or not.

She is interested in NOW.

Can  you smell the footprints.. is your mind settling?

Come and let us explore together.
