Time in retreat allows us to step out of the complexity of our lives, to listen deeply to our body, heart, and mind. A retreat provides an opportunity and a caring container deepening our meditation practice. The Mindfulness practice on retreat is accompanied with training in Compassion and Mindful Nature Connection meditations.
This is an excellent opportunity for those new to retreat practice, and also ideal for experienced practitioners who wish to do a silent retreat. Teachings are appropriate for healthcare professionals as well as the general public. Healthcare professionals will be able to incorporate the tools and practices offered in this program in ways beneficial to clients or patients.
Most of the retreat is held in silence, with periods of sitting and walking meditation There are teaching talks, guided meditations, time for questions and answers and meetings with a teacher. Retreatants are encouraged to practice mindfulness in a continuous way, staying with their own present experience as it unfolds, moment to moment. In this silent and mindful environment, awareness sharpens, the body quiets, the mind clears, and space opens for insight and understanding to develop. By cultivating awareness, clarity, and kindness, we discover our path to inner freedom and a peaceful heart that is deeper, for the benefit or our relationship to ourselves, our community, and our wider world.
The teacher offer instructions, dharma talks and regularly scheduled practice meetings to provide guidance throughout the retreat.
