Inspired by the wisdom of Buddhist psychology, with its profound understanding of the truth of Impermanence, we will explore ways to integrate change and loss in our lives, so that we can learn to bear the unbearable. Through sitting and walking meditations, compassion practices, qigong and short individual sessions we will strengthen our capacity for courageous presence. This allows us to embrace life and death with an open and compassionate heart, one which can rediscover joy and lightness in the midst of life’s challenges.
This 4 night ‘Open the Heart and Still the Mind’ retreat, starts with lunch on Saturday 17th March. Facilitated by clinical psychologist Sue Cooper, the retreat offers an integration of body, heart and mind and is held in a contained and nurturing atmosphere of contemplative silence.
CPD accreditation for psychologists and other HPCSA registered professionals will be offered.
