Talk Given on March 2, 2012 by Michael Stone

The practice of yoga is a practice of intimacy. The process of reaching into the physical, psychological and other interdependent sheaths of the postures wakes us up to the intelligence of life.

Through becoming intimate with the breathing patterns, bandhas and stillness of meditative awareness we wake to our lives and realize the possibility of serving others. Yoga Philosophy and practice, juxtaposed with Buddhism and western Psychology gives us the tools for personal healing and social action.

Occupy The Present Moment

Repeats every day until Mon Nov 21 2011 .

Meditation is an excellent foundation for social action. The intention of the Occupy the Present Moment zone is to co-create an intention and practice of mindfulness at the Occupy Vancouver protest. By cultivating attention in the present moment, we extend kindness and compassion to ourselves and to those around us. Doing so, we work towards destroying the foundations of greed, hatred, and ignorance.

Perhaps this will be your main form of liberatory activity at Occupy Vancouver, or perhaps it can serve as a source of refreshment and renewal for other actions that you are taking on a drop-in basis.

All traditions and levels of experience are welcome - we ask simply that everyone practice with respect and kindness.
