A Retreat with Clouds in Water Zen Center, HECUA, and Don’t You Feel It Too?

On Zoom with Optional COVID-Safe Segments
Pay What You Can (Estimated value: $100)
Please register by April 14 

We invite you to cultivate new belonging to self, community, and the land. This gathering is an experience of sitting and moving in right relationship to place, guided by the retreat practice of Clouds in Water Zen Center. You will practice inner quietude and stillness, expansive mindful movement, and placing yourself in the momentum of land back—the healing path of rematriation of land.

This special April retreat is co-led by Clouds guiding teacher Sosan Theresa Flynn, in collaboration with Don’t You Feel It Too?, a 13-year public movement project for embodied liberation, led by behavioral artist Marcus Young 楊墨 and many others. The retreat will include the participation of students from HECUA’s Art for Social Change program.

The retreat will be offered online with an optional segment of COVID-responsible, in-person practice. We will have sufficient breaks away from the screen to stay fresh.
