Day-Long Retreat: Welcoming the Year with Compassionate Awareness
27 January, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm UTC+2
This daylong retreat, held in a nurturing atmosphere of contemplative silence at this stunning venue near Stellenbosch, is an opportunity to welcome the year with compassionate awareness.
We will draw on the wisdom and ethics of Buddhist psychology and an understanding of the importance of relating with healthy boundaries and compassionate communication. The meditations and movement practices will develop an embodied awareness which deepens our understanding of internalising boundaries, so that there is greater clarity around what is inside and outside, self and other. This will encourage us to start our year with kindness and compassion for the well-being of ourselves, each other and our world.
In addition to the Dharma teachings, the day will include sitting, walking and reclining meditation, as well as qigong (Chi Kung) movement meditation, which will enhance our awareness of the body through connecting with the elements. A delicious 2 course vegetarian/vegan lunch, as well as teas, will be savoured in silence.
CPD accreditation for psychologists and other HPCSA registered professionals: 6 Ethics CEUs have been applied for.
