About This Event
The first in a series of weekend retreats suitable for anyone interested in the practice of meditation as a way to develop fearlessness, confidence, openness, and gentleness towards ourselves and our world. An introduction or reintroduction to meditation and regular practice over a weekend is a very powerful way to strengthen your meditation and your motivation to develop a regular personal practice.
Meditation is presented as an opportunity to rest in what you already are — basic goodness, natural peace and clarity. It is how we train in being awake, placing the mind on the breath, in the present moment.
Through the simple, regular practice of sitting meditation, you learn to develop friendship with your mind, skill in how to work with speed and difficulty, and a sense of humour. Slowly you can let the mind relax within itself, and let go of struggling with yourself.
The weekend is non-residential and will take place in The Yoga Sanctuary, Constantia.

Mindfulness Journeys Retreats November 13, 2014
I am fortunate enough to regularly hear the teachings of Lama Brian Hilliard. His profound understanding of what the students need come from his 35 years of experience and the deepening he experienced in his three year retreat. He is able to transmit the teachings to beginners and advanced students alike. His sense of humour and approachability make for a wonderful teacher. It's great to be able to travel to all the different exotic destinations with him. He becomes much more than a teacher but a great fellow travel companion.
