RETREAT: Beginning the Year with Calm and Compassion

24 January, 2020 @ 5:30 pm - 26 January, 2020 @ 1:00 pm

Embracing Change and Loss

This ‘Open the Heart and Still the Mind’ weekend retreat will be held in a contained and nurturing atmosphere of contemplative (Noble) silence and is suitable for beginners as well as experienced meditators.

Through the practice of meditation and the wisdom of Buddhist psychology we will discover how to create balance and stillness in the midst of whatever is arising. Guided meditations, including mindfulness and compassion practices, as well as daily qigong movement meditation, time in nature and a short session with Sue will help transform the fragmented, self-critical heart and mind to a more integrated experience of embodied presence. We will deepen this process with metta (loving-kindness) meditation, which allows us to embrace our humanness with kindness and care.
