RETREAT: A Taste of Freedom on the Sacred Mountain

26 April, 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 1 May, 2017 @ 9:00 am

BRC

This retreat, which is suitable for both beginner and experienced meditators, will begin with supper at 5:30pm on Wed 26 April and end with breakfast on Monday 1 May.

Held in contemplative silence, this retreat draws inspiration from the wisdom of Buddhist psychology and the support of the sacred Mvoleni mountain. Through the cultivation of meditation practices that will nurture and ground us, we will discover ways to free ourselves from our habitual, fear-based patterns of thinking and behaving. When we embrace our humanness with kind and compassionate awareness, we can move beyond fear, shame and the curse of perfectionism, to discover that the possibility of freedom lies in the next breath!

This silent retreat includes sitting and walking meditations, daily sessions of Qigong movement meditation, as well as time for yoga and mindful walks to enhance the integration of body, heart, and mind. There will be short, individual sessions with Sue, as well as time for restorative rest.

CPD accreditation: 42 General and 2 Ethics CEUs have been granted.
