Embodied Dharma: Yoga, Connective Tissue and Inter-Being with Tias Little
We and everything we perceive are interwoven
And this interweaving goes on and on
While each thing stands in its own place.
from Taking Part in the Gathering by Shitou Xiqian
Yoga historically has emphasized connection to a unified field of being. In the microcosm of the body all structures are interwoven. Connective tissue is the physical structure that holds us together as the liver has connections to the lung and the tibia has connections to the tailbone. In the macrocosm of the larger world, all things are interwoven or interdependent. Thich Nhat Hanh called this “inter-being”. Realizing that all things at some level are indivisible is indispensable to the yogic imagination. In this weekend immersion we will practice movements that enhance the flow of fascia through the body, and through insight meditation and dharma study we investigate how all things within us and around us are interwoven.
