This week-long retreat, held in contemplative (Noble) silence at the beautiful Dharmagiri Sacred Mountain Retreat in the southern Drakensberg, KZN is another of Sue’s training retreats intended for people working with groups and/or interested in integrating Buddhist psychology and wisdom into their work. It is an intensive retreat for those who have previously attended one of Sue's retreats or have an established meditation practice and attended similar silent retreats with other teachers. The retreat offers an opportunity to deepen your meditation practice through extended silence, as well as your understanding of the Dharma through dharma talks which integrate the psychological and spiritual elements of this path. Sue will also offer daily qigong movement meditation for a deeper embodied experience, as well as individual sessions which provide emotional containment, as well as deeper insight. In addition to Sue’s usual listening and talking meditations, there will be time to reflect on ways to integrate these practices and insights into a work context, with a particular focus on ways to create safe spaces in which healing and transformation can occur. The retreat will allow for silence in solitude in Nature, as well as time to rest, to balance the activities of group practice.
A pre-retreat individual session is required if you have not attended one of Sue’s residential retreats before. The fee for this is R850 for 50 mins, fully covered by medical aid
CPD accreditation will be applied for and confirmed in the new year.
