RETREAT: Rest & Replenish with Compassionate Awareness

27 July, 2024 @ 9:30 am - 28 July, 2024 @ 10:00 am UTC+2

This Winter Overnight retreat will be held on Saturday 27 - Sunday 28 July in the very nurturing and beautiful environment of Mont Fleur, nestled in the mountains near Stellenbosch and begins at 9 for 9:30am, ending on Sunday at 10am. It is suitable for beginners and experienced practitioners and provides an opportunity to deepen our compassionate self-care during this season of reflection and rest.

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 befriend ourselves, listening softly to body, heart and mind with kindness and compassion, we cultivate the courage for deeper self-care and more secure boundaries, which improves our relationships both to self and others. These practices enhance our capacity to deal with change and transitions.

A few places will be made available for a daylong retreat on Saturday from 9am - 5pm, but the overnight stay is recommended for a deeper experience.

A 30-50 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. 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 registered professionals: 6 General CEUs with an annual once-off admin fee of R375.
