RETREAT: Courageous and Joyful New Beginnings

7 September, 2024 @ 9:00 am - 8 September, 2024 @ 2:00 pm UTC+2

This Spring overnight retreat will be held in a contained and nurturing atmosphere of contemplative (Noble) silence at the stunning Mont Fleur retreat venue, nestled in the mountains near Stellenbosch. It is suitable for beginners, as well as experienced meditators who want to deepen their practice.

Through the practice of meditation and the wisdom of Buddhist psychology, we will welcome the season of Spring and the possibility of new beginnings with joyful and compassionate awareness. Supported by the beauty of Nature around us, we will ground our awareness, establishing a calm and unified inner refuge from which to explore new and courageous ways of being, which awaken us to life and its possibilities in the midst of uncertainty.

To enhance the integration of body, heart and mind, daily sessions of qigong movement meditation will be offered and optional yoga or mindful movement and massages. as an optional extra. There will be time for restorative rest, as well as silent walks or mindful runs in the vineyards and mountains. Short, individual check-ins which provide additional emotional containment and insight during the retreat. Mont Fleur’s well-known exceptionally delicious vegetarian and vegan food will be savoured in silence, as part of our integrated practice.

A 30-40 minute pre-retreat individual session via Zoom/Whatsapp is recommended for newcomers or if you have not attended one of Sue’s residential retreats before. This provides greater containment and enhances and deepens the silent retreat experience for yourself and for the group. The fee for this will be the 30-40 minute medical aid rate and will be reduced if you are not on medical aid.
Please contact Sue on sue.stillmind@gmail.com to arrange a time.

CPD accreditation for psychologists and other HPCSA (or equivalent) registered professionals is confirmed, with an annual admin fee of R375 for 2024.
