20-26

Learn how to work with the subtle body-the psycho/physio substrate that under-girds the physical body-and bring to practice a perspective on aging that transforms and breathes new life into the process of growing older. Based upon teachings of the Buddhadharma, Tsoknyi Rinpoche, who often humorously points out his own greying hair, will guide us into new and important territory, a journey through which we will be able to experience our advancing years with increased fluidity and wisdom.
