RETREAT: Finding Solace with Sangha in Silence Autumn Half-Day Retreat
4 June, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 1:30 pm UTC+2
This nourishing, Autumn half-day retreat will take place in-person and online at 25 Hohenort Ave, Constantia, and is an opportunity to find solace through practising with like-minded sangha, as we find joy amidst change.
9am - 13:30 including a silent lunch.
Through mindfulness and compassion practices, we will draw on the containment of silence to cultivate a courageous practice of self-care. As we listen to the body, heart and mind with more kindness, we strengthen our connection to our own intuitive wisdom. When kindness meets compassion, understanding and joy arise.
Inspired by the wisdom of Buddhist psychology, the retreat will include teachings, guided sitting meditations, qigong movement meditation and time for reflection in a listening and talking meditation. A simple but delicious lunch will be savoured at silence.
