RETREAT: From Courageous & Joyful Presence to Wise Action

25 October, 2024 @ 5:00 pm - 27 October, 2024 @ 2:00 pm UTC+2

This silent weekend retreat will explore ways in which we can discover the courage within ourselves to live wholeheartedly and authentically. Through the emotional containment of silence and meditation, we will ground ourselves more fully and open-heartedly in the present moment, discovering the joy that comes through connecting to ourselves and to life with compassionate simplicity and discerning wisdom.

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 that comes from living with fear, perfectionism and shame. This process will be supported externally by the beauty of nature in the gardens of Temenos, and internally by embodied awareness practices which integrate body, heart and mind.

This retreat includes teachings from the wisdom of Buddhist psychology, guided meditations in all postures and time for silent walking meditations through the beautiful gardens of Temenos. The ancient practice of qigong movement meditation, as well as optional embodied movement classes and relaxing 60 min aromatherapy massages, will enhance our embodied experience. There will also be time for restorative rest and short, individual sessions with Sue during the retreat. Delicious vegetarian/vegan food will be savoured in silence as part of our integrated practice. This retreat ends with lunch on Sunday 27 October and includes free accommodation on that Sunday night.

A pre-retreat individual session via Zoom is required for newcomers or if you have not attended one of Sue’s residential retreats before. The fee for this is fully covered by medical aid and can be reduced if necessary. 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.
