awakening to abundance

30 may - 4 june, 2019

Aparigraha is the last of the Yama’s in Patangali’s eight limbs of yoga. It is often translated as non-attachment or non-possessiveness. The practice of Aparigraha is the beginning of a paradigm shift, from a perception of lack to an ackowledgement of abundance .

Join Gregory Lennon and Shannon Handa as they lead practices, meditations, and workshops exploring this Awakening to Abundance.

There is a worm addicted to eating grape leaves. Suddenly he wakes up, call is Grace, whatever, something wakes him, and he is no longer a worm. He is the entire vineyard, the orchard too, the fruit, the trunks, a growing wisdom and joy that does not need to devour.
— Rumi

Bathed in the golden sunlight of Puglia, set an intention of abundance during daily meditation and Vinyasa Yoga practices. Explore the beautiful, baroque center of Lecce and breathtaking beaches on the Adriatic and Ionian coasts. Practice mindfulness while strolling through the olive groves, or sit dappled in sun while shaded on the island in the center of the pool.
