Glass Half Full: Opening to Gratitude, Joy & Loving Kindness

May 31 - June 2

R1650 - R1950

            Glass Half Full: Opening to Gratitude, Joy & Loving Kindness

 A creative workshop with relaxation, playing with art materials, poetry and nature

Sharon Benatar

“Ten thousand flowers in spring, the moon in autumn,
A cool breeze in summer, snow in winter.
If your mind isn’t clouded by unnecessary things,
this is the best season of your life“
                                                                           Wu Men

 A life oriented around gratitude and loving kindness is the source of healing for life’s trials and our deep inner yearnings for more and better. Gratitude serves as an antidote to negative emotions, and protects us from resentment, stress, entitlement, disappointment and anger.

On this retreat we will meditate, be guided in deep relaxations, and play/explore using art materials and materials found in nature. We will also spend quiet time being in nature and in an atmosphere of kindness and respect for one another. This is an invitation to both new and experienced practitioners to join us for this weekend so we can learn to keep coming back to wonder, genuine thanks and appreciation for what exists in this moment.

No experience in art is required, just an ability to hold a paint brush or to drop paint onto a piece of paper. Art materials will be supplied but do bring along old clothes you can play and explore as well as a favourite poem or song lyrics to share.
