A Mindfulness Retreat
One of the most common themes used to describe the process of mindfulness is that it involves waking up. This awakening is regarded as natural to our being, and yet profound and demanding. Awakening makes its way on the basis of a heartfelt response to the present condition of life itself, before we start seeking beyond where we are for something better. On this retreat we will practice opening to the richness and wonder of presence, as we discover the many emerging colours of awakening.
This silent retreat will consist of group sessions along with free time for retreatants to move with their own rhythm. Daily sessions include instruction, sitting meditations and an enquiry period. This retreat is suitable for people who are new to the practice as well as those with previous experience of mindfulness.
The retreat is held in the beautiful setting of Tushita Ashram and Mystery School in the Peria Valley, Northland.
The seven day fully residential retreat will begin with a meal at 6pm on Saturday 22 April 2017 and finish in the early afternoon of Saturday 29 April 2017
Cost: Registration $540 (covers food and accommodation only) plus dana/koha payment for Stephen (please offer your dana payment at end of retreat).
