About The Event
There are now well-researched benefits of the benefits of meditation, it's an ancient practice that is well underused in our busy western world... The purpose of this retreat is to reinvigorate your existing practice or to embark on your meditation journey. A sample schedule of our day is outlined below, so we will start the day with an Asana practice (the physical practice of yoga) and will meditate for approximately 6 hours per day. There will be silence after the first dinner together, as it is less stimulating for the mind and will provide you ample time to examine your own mind and patterns of thoughts that may exist.
There will be some guides and prompts for every meditation session for those newer to the practice and I will teach some different types of meditation. The retreat will be set up for all levels of experience. There is also an option to sit in a chair for the meditation sessions for those who are unable to sit in a cross-legged position.
