RETREAT: Open the Heart and Still the Mind – Finding Freedom in Silence (Fully booked, waiting list only)
27 April, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 4:30 pm UTC+2
Fully booked - waiting list only
This silent daylong retreat celebrates Finding Freedom in Silence at the very nurturing and beautiful retreat venue of Mont Fleur, nestled in the mountains near Stellenbosch. Suitable for beginners as well as experienced meditators, we will explore ways in which to access more moments of delight and joy, amidst whatever challenges we are experiencing in our lives.
Through meditation practices which cultivate calm and tranquility, we will establish an inner refuge, a safe home within, which rests on a foundation of kindness and compassion towards ourselves. This creates the conditions to heal the fragmentation and suffering that comes from living with fear, perfectionism and shame. As the body softens, the mind settles and the heart opens, we strengthen our capacity for greater ease, joy and trust.
This retreat includes teachings from the wisdom of Buddhist psychology, guided meditations in all postures and qigong movement meditation to enhance the integration of body, heart and mind.
