This 2 1/2 hour workshop will give you an opportunity to approach hand sewing as a moving meditation. We will follow our intuition and explore the Japanese craft of mending something tattered, which is called Boro. Bring your favorite old jeans or garments to repair (cotton or linen) plus any additional clean used cloth that you love for patches.
Through craft we will explore balanced action: breath posture sensations curiosity patience stories we will also discuss mending as environmental +social justice.
“The Sanskrit word sutra, which is a succinct aphorism, literally means “thread,” and gives us the English word “suture.” A sutra text, like the Yoga Sutras, consists of a number of these aphorism-threads “strung together” to summarize a spiritual teaching.” -Richard Rosen
