In 12, 45-minute, in-person (streamed online) sessions. In each session we will walk through one of Genki’s introductory lectures, discuss, expand and refine our understanding. We will explore how to practice in daily life what you are learning. We will have time to answer your questions, discuss how to gently work through trial, errors and failures, and how to seek preciseness and excellence of being.
