RETREAT: A Joyful Awakening
17 March, 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 21 March, 2017 @ 1:00 pm UTC+2
This 4-night retreat integrates meditation and the wisdom of Buddhist psychology and is held in a contained and nurturing atmosphere of contemplative silence. Through the teachings and meditation practices which cultivate calm, spaciousness and compassionate wisdom, we will discover ways to free ourselves from the addictive patterns of our fear-based conditioning, the cause of so much of our suffering.
As we integrate our body, heart, and mind through grounding ourselves in the present moment with an embodied awareness and a kind and compassionate heart, we will discover a powerful healing and transformation, which lead to a joyful awakening.
In addition to sitting and walking meditations, I will offer chi kung movement meditation as well as short, individual sessions. There will be time for restorative rest, as well as for silent walks in the beautiful gardens of the BRC. Beginners, as well as experienced practitioners, are very welcome.
CPD accreditation: 32 General and 2 Ethics CEUs have been granted.
