Awaken • Integrate • Embody

In Sanskrit, Bhāvanā describes a process of cultivation: the development of mental qualities such as imagination and awareness directed toward intentional change.

AWAKEN. An inquiry into the nature of being beyond our conceptual maps. We experience our whole being as body, mind, and language.

INTEGRATE. Invite an opening that expands and includes all parts of ourselves. We envision possibilities beyond our past frames of reference.

EMBODY. Engage life with contemplative practice beyond our reflexive selves. We embody and sustain new levels of awareness and action.

“Our philosophy is grounded in only half a language … the power of discourse is deployed but the strength of listening is ignored. We have a culture that knows how to speak but not how to listen; so we mistake warring monologues for genuine dialogue.”

—Gemma Corradi Fiumara, The Other Side of Language
