“Integrating Dharma into a yoga pose or practice can be as seamless as integrating Dharma into our lives. No matter whether we are practicing on a cushion, on a mat, or out in the world, attention to the way things are, intention to relieve or reduce suffering, and increasing kindness and compassion can be our guides and refuges. Whatever the shape or form of the body, whether standing, lying down, sitting still, or walking, we gain the capacity to be in the world, in the present, and to navigate our lives with more ease, wisdom, and kindness.”

The Vajra Yoga + Meditation Embodied Mind training is not your typical yoga teacher training, nor is it your typical mindfulness training – it is an integration of mindfulness, meditation and embodiment practices: meditation and yoga, yoga therapy and compassion practices, self reflection and self regulation, kindness braided into a variety of empowering ‘in the body’ practices.

"The study of haptic intelligence leads to even deeper questions about the somatic self. Our skin is us because it draws a line around our existence: we experience the world as ourself. We can separate ourself from our eyes and ears, recognize the information they give us as information, but our tactile and proprioceptive halos supply us with the sense that we are constant selves.

"[T]reatments in a community acupuncture clinic are simple. The process is almost always the same: the patient arrives, checks in, settles into a recliner, the acupuncturist finds them and asks, “what can I do for you today?”, there is a conversation that lasts less than five minutes, the acupuncturist puts in the needles, the patient relaxes for anywhere from 15 minutes to several hours, the acupuncturist takes the needles out, the patient leaves. Acupuncture in a community clinic is not like massage, or therapy, or a doctor’s appointment. It’s just acupuncture, and generally very predictable. For many patients, a weekly treatment is a kind of ritual of self-care, a comforting habit. The transparency and predictability give everyone, but especially people with trauma histories, a sense that they are in control of their treatment."

"The model that is known as “community acupuncture” dates back to the 1970s, when the Young Lords and the Black Panthers pioneered the use of auricular acupuncture in a group setting for community-based detoxification in New York. The Black Panthers went on to establish the Black Acupuncture Advisory Association of North America and the Harlem Institute of Acupuncture. The National Acupuncture Detoxification Association (NADA), founded in 1985, promoted the use of auricular acupuncture and established many public health programs. One challenge that all community-based or public health acupuncture programs face is funding: because acupuncture is considered an alternative modality, it is often difficult to support with federal or state funding.
