20 - 23 October 2017 - Open the Heart and Still the Mind
Updated: Mar 8, 2020
Finding Courage for New Beginnings
This 3-night silent retreat is suitable for beginners as well as experienced practitioners and is held in a nurturing and containing atmosphere of contemplative silence. We will focus on the cultivation of life-affirming qualities of mind and heart which support the development of courage and self-confidence, necessary for growth and discovery. We will draw on the Spring theme of new beginnings to inspire and encourage fearlessness in the face of change and uncertainty.
In addition to sitting, standing and reclining meditations, our embodied awareness will be enhanced by daily sessions of the ancient movement meditation qigong (Chi Kung), optional yoga and aromatherapy massages, as well as silent walking meditations through the beautiful Spring gardens of Temenos. There will also be time for restorative rest and short, individual sessions with Sue during the weekend. Delicious vegetarian/vegan food will be savoured in silence as part of our integrated practice. This retreat includes free accommodation on Sunday night.
Embrace the season of Spring in the magical gardens of Temenos with awareness and silent celebration!
