Online retreat: Open the Heart and Still the Mind

Healing and Containment through Silence

This daylong online retreat, suitable for beginners and experienced practitioners is held in a nurturing atmosphere of contemplative (Noble) silence and is offered in support of the beautiful venue of Emoyeni, near the Magaliesberg mountains. We will explore ways in which meditation and silence can provide emotional containment when we find a quiet resting place within ourselves. As we ground ourselves more fully and wholeheartedly in the present moment, we will discover how to live authentically with compassionate simplicity and discerning wisdom.

Through meditation practices which cultivate calm and tranquillity, we will establish an inner refuge, a safe home within, which rests on a foundation of kindness and compassion towards ourselves. This creates the conditions to heal the fragmentation that comes from living with fear, perfectionism and disconnection. This process will be supported externally by the beauty of nature, and internally by embodied awareness practices which integrate body, heart and mind.

This retreat will include teachings from the wisdom of Buddhist psychology, guided meditations in all postures, qigong movement meditation, time away from the screen for silent walking and eating meditations and time to reflect on our experience in a listening and talking meditation. A schedule will be provided ahead of time for planning your day and the Zoom link sent nearer the time.

An optional pre and/or post retreat individual session can be scheduled via Zoom, Skype or Whatsapp video and the additional fee of R850 is fully covered by medical aid. Please contact Sue on sue.stillmind@gmail.com to arrange a time.

CPD accreditation for psychologists and other HPCSA registered professionals: to be confirmed with an admin fee attached.
