RETREAT: Finding Our Ground – Beginning the Year with Compassion, Wisdom and Joy

27 January, 2024 @ 9:00 am - 28 January, 2024 @ 10:00 am UTC+2

This "Open the Heart and Still the Mind" silent overnight retreat will be held in the very nurturing and beautiful environment of Mont Fleur, nestled in the mountains near Stellenbosch. It is suitable for beginners and experienced practitioners and provides an opportunity to begin the year with compassionate self-care, wisdom and joy. The retreat begins at 9 for 9:30am on Saturday 27th and ends at 10am Sunday 28th January.

Drawing on the wisdom of Buddhist and Western psychology and through various mindful and compassion meditation practices, including sitting and walking meditations and qigong movement meditation, we will learn how to connect more deeply with our embodied, authentic presence in silence and stillness. As we ground ourselves in a safe home within, listening softly to body, heart and mind with kindness and compassion, we cultivate the courage and trust for new beginnings.

A 30 - 50 minute pre-retreat individual session via Zoom is required for newcomers or if you have not attended one of Sue’s residential retreats before. The cost will be covered by medical aid or reduced if necessary. Please contact Sue on sue.stillmind@gmail.com to arrange a time.

CPD accreditation will be confirmed in 2024 and will carry an admin fee.
