Is desire a gift that we can use to navigate the world, or a challenge to be overcome?
In this workshop, I step outside this binary to suggest that desire is not a single “thing”, but a range of different experiences that have subtle shading. Through a series of exercises, we feel out the texture our own experience, feeling out the sensation of “trying to convince yourself to be satisfied with a substitute” (1) or “trying to not want something you really want.”
You will leave with some tools for investigating your own desire, as well as ways to become clear with yourself about what you’re really after.
I’m offering this workshop at Potentials Yoga Studio in downtown Sydney (NS) on April 2, 2016. You can RSVP directly to the studio at the number on the poster at the top of this post. (2)
I hope to see you there!

If you are not local, but want to arrange another offering of this workshop, please let me know in the comments. I am starting to compile a list of possible locations for a summer tour.
- I, for example, do not believe that carob in any way fulfils the need for chocolate.
- I’m trying not to give away the owner’s cell # to bots.
