"There is a great spectacle, and that is the sea. There is a greater spectacle than the sea, and that is the sky. There is yet a greater spectacle than the sky,
and that is the interior of the soul." - Victor Hugo
This day-long retreat, called the Day of Mindfulness, is open and appropriate for beginners and veteran meditators. We will experience mindfulness sitting, walking, and loving-kindness meditations, as well as mindful yoga. The meditations will have enough guidance to allow people of all levels of meditation practice to attend. This retreat will be held in silence, allowing one to develop concentration and insight. While there are many benefits of silence and extended practice, it can bring us into contact with the sharper edges of our experience. If you are in the midst of deep emotional difficulties such as post-traumatic stress, untreated addiction or major depression I encourage you to attend a day of mindfulness retreat after you have resolved some of the difficult issues. If you would like to discuss whether it is appropriate to attend this retreat, please contact us. We are happy to help you decide. The cost is $85.00. The dates for 2015/ 2016 are:
March 5th, 2016 from 10 am - 4 pm
May 14th, 2016 from 10am - 4pm
August 13th, 2016 from 10am - 4pm
October 22nd, 2016 from 10am - 4pm
