15 Oct WCCM Malaysia Workshop 2018 – Using the Body as the Temple of the Spirit
Body, mind and spirit are fundamentally and essentially one. The body is an inseparable part of our being. Experiencing the Body as the Temple of the Divine lies at the core of spirituality. It is through the body that we awaken to the dynamic presence of the Divine Spirit within and around us. Yet we often deny this beautiful, liberating reality by losing touch with our bodies or by the negative ways in which we use our bodies. Societies in our time tend to contribute to this state of physical and emotional dis-ease through their promotion of hectic, stressful, addictive life styles.
During this three-day workshop, Fr Joe will demonstrate the sacredness of the whole person through his emphasis on the unity of body, mind and spirit. Gentle yoga postures will be explored to help us “love our bodies back to life”. Sessions will include the practice of yoga and meditation as well as input on spirituality and addiction.
Father Joe Pereira, a wonderful spiritual teacher and yoga instructor, comes from Mumbai, India. He is a Catholic priest and founderdirector of Kripa Foundation which is dedicated to care and rehabilitation in the areas of addiction and HIV/AIDs. In 2009, he received an Indian government national award for his contribution to the field of social work in India. A long-standing member of WCCM, he has served the community richly in many capacities. He gives retreats and workshops globally with a focus on yoga and meditation.
