Embodied Inquiry

meditation+yoga with sean feit

Welcome. I teach Buddhism and Yoga based in many years of practice and study, working with asana, pranayama, meditation, devotion, and inquiry, supporting those who hold these practices as part of their spiritual path. All are welcome to come and explore the mystery of this human life together. No religious belief is necessary, but I bring in elements from both Buddhist and Hindu yogas, classical and tantric, as tools for the awakening of the heart to freedom and ease.

I also write about current issues in western Buddhist and Yoga communities, as well as art, performance, politics, and social justice. Shorter writing is under “blog” and longer academic essays under “poems + essays”.

I am cutting back my teaching in 2015 to take a dissertation-writing sabbatical. Asana classes have ended for now, and Surya Prakasha has taken over our monthly kirtan. The Tuesday Piedmont meditation group has finished along with the transition at Piedmont (see PYS website for details). Thursday night Insight Meditation at Yoga Tree Telegraph will continue as my primary public offering. Workshops, daylongs, and Teacher Trainings will continue. Sign up on the left for my monthly-or-so newsletter to hear about workshops and classes.

Blessings for your practice and new year.

Ongoing classes

Meditation
Insight Meditation Satsang: Thu 7:45-9:15pm Yoga Tree Telegraph

Meditation with instructions, wisdom teachings from Theravada Buddhist and yoga traditions, and community discussion of practice. Both sitting groups are offered fully on donation, in the Buddhist practice of dāna (generosity).

Yoga + kirtan have ended for now

Wed + Fri vinyasa at Yoga Tree Telegraph has ended. Thank you for many years of rich, evolving practice. I’m doing no ongoing asana classes currently. At Yoga Tree Telegraph I recommend my brilliant colleagues and friends Rachel Shaw and Lucid Dawn. Last Sunday of the month kirtan at Yoga Tree Telegraph has also ended (for Sara and I). Our dear friend Surya Prakasha will continue leading on the Last Sundays, and Sara and I will join sometimes.

**Kirtan every Sunday 7-9 at Yoga Tree Telegraph, with rotating leaders, continues.**
