Retreat details and Schedule -
The Retreat will emphazie quieting the mind, opening the heart, and developing clarity and depth of practice within a supportive community. We will be engaging in times of guided silent practice - sitting and walking meditations with sessions of Mindful Movement, combined with a spirit of loving-kindness.
This will be interwoven with time during the afternoon/eveninges when the teachers will offer master class workshops including Mindfulness for Cancer and Mindfulness for Pain.
We will also facilitate sharing circles, where you will have the opportunity to connect with others who are committed to mindfulness in their personal and professional lives, so that we can draw support, inspiration and encouragement from each other. Individual meetings will also be available, enabling you to check in with the teacher, discuss your practice and ask any questions you may
Silence will be practiced during meals and informal periods.
