This workshop will introduce Mudra to those not familiar with the practice, and deepen it for those that are.

Mudra Space Awareness is a method of mind/body training that draws inspiration from meditation master Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche's early education in Tibetan monastic dance. It is a discipline unique to the Shambhala lineage, and is rarely taught or practiced. The exercises combine intense physical training with focused sensory awareness to unlock the inherent awakened energy in the mind/body relationship. Mudra trains us to join fully with the intensity of experience.

Come experience this provocative and profound awareness practice that comes from the Tibetan yogic tradition and an intersection with experimental theatre techniques in the 1970s in the West,

In 2005, Greg Heffron apprenticed with senior Mudra Space Awareness teacher Craig Smith, and become authorized to teach this unique mind-body meditation technique. Since that time, he has taught Mudra Space Awareness around North America and Europe. In 2007, Smith and Heffron taught this practice in a workshop for fourth year students in the Dance Division at The Juilliard School in New York City. Heffron owns and manages Green Zone Institute where he teaches mindful communication with Acharya Susan Chapman.

Please note that Mudra Space Awareness is not the same as Maitri Space Awareness (the practice with the colored rooms or glasses)
