Deep Peace Meditation Retreat
The Deep Peace Meditation Retreat is not focused on pushing us into a rigid discipline. The focus here is on meeting everyone where they are at. Silence is required, to assist all in going deeper in meditation and exploring new dimensions of our beings. Full attendance of all lectures, meditation sessions and yoga sessions is also required to ensure that we all get the most of our retreat experience and support each other in the journey.
And yet, there is a soft attitude of easing into the retreat experience. Sitting comfortably in a position that will allow us to meditate.Respecting our bodies in the yoga sessions and not trying to push ourselves into positions that we are simply not ready for.
The attitude of the Deep Peace Meditation Retreat is the attitude of balance and harmony, the middle way. We do our best to not fall into a laziness or lack of commitment and at the same time to let go of any tendencies to push or force ourselves in a way that is not psychologically healthy or physically healthy.
This retreat is a very special experience. We often take vacations or courses, explore and relax, and yet find ourselves in the same patterns of stress and being closed off. Here, it is not just an experience and a good memory, but the Deep Peace Meditation Retreat stays with us. Helping us to open our hearts everyday, to come into a true authenticity, compassion, care and ease.
In this meditation retreat, there will be daily lectures. Sharings of profound teachings from many spiritual traditions(predominantly from the Eastern Wisdom Traditions of Yoga and Buddhism). Not only will we learn meditative practices that can be applied right away. But we will also learn the profound philosophies that we all intuitively feel, and yet the inspiring teachings can help us to live in the warmth of these understandings.
“They are both truly gifted teachers that will touch you deeply. I have no doubt that their retreats will be a hugely transformative experience for all participants.” Gaenor from Australia
