Riding The Ox Home

An insight meditation retreat based on the 10 Ox-herding pictures

Mervyn Croft

On this silent retreat we will explore the path to awakening as described in the classic Chinese ‘10 Ox-Herding Pictures’. In meditation we turn our awareness inwards and make contact with the turbulence and struggle that is so often present in our minds and bodies – represented by the unruly ox in these pictures. As our mind begins to relax and soften we learn to be friendly with ourselves, with our fears and insecurities. By gradually quieting the ox we allow calmness and peacefulness to take root, opening our heart to the aliveness and interconnectedness of all things. Once we feel grounded in this warm connection with ourselves, we can begin to open our hearts to others.

There will be evening discussions and time to walk and reflect in nature.

NB: Please note that a weekend option ( 4 – 6 August) is also available if you cannot stay for all five days (price R1 300.00 – R1 560.00)
