This workshop originally scheduled for the Week of October 24-29, 2010, was postponed.

Sacred Union: A Merging of Opposites

esalenCultures throughout the world have used the wheel to symbolize unity, stillness, and movement through the cycles of renewal, including the Buddhist wheel of life, the Native American medicine wheel, and the Hindu mandala, among others. Based on Ann Mortifee’s upcoming book, The Wheel of Integration, this workshop creates a map to help identify where we need to focus our attention if we wish to become more balanced and integrated as individuals.

Join jazz musician Paul Horn and Canadian vocalist and arts-and-culture leader Ann Mortifee as they bring together their unique and shared life experiences as husband and wife.

“To become fully alive in all our humanness and vibrant in our spiritual essence, a merging of opposites needs to occur,” write Ann and Paul. “Strength with vulnerability, active with receptive, known with unknown. Through music, story, improvisation, meditation, and work with the wheel, the intention for this workshop will be to stabilize and free the body, expand yet focus the mind, and awaken and embody the spirit.”

Come ready to dive deep and to have a lot of fun along the way.
