New Year Retreat Taking time to reflect Mervyn Croft   The New Year is a powerful symbol of impermanence, of the cycles in nature and in our own lives.  It is a time to reflect on the past, to open to the present and to question what it is that we are doing with our lives?  This 5-day meditation retreat will mostly be in silence, giving us the opportunity to deepen our understanding of impermanence and explore how it is…

Softening Anger Mindfully

March 2, 2018 - March 4, 2018

Softening Anger Mindfully Taming and training your inner-knight Tessa Pretorius Anger plays an important role in our lives, however, when it becomes the overriding or default emotion for anything and everything that happens, it is no longer beneficial to us or, to anybody around us.  One of anger’s main functions is to protect us, yet, all too often our “inner-knight” becomes overzealous or misguided about how much protection we actually need. This is why, rather than being combative towards our…

Resting in Awareness

April 13, 2018 - April 15, 2018

Resting in Awareness    Explore the hidden realms that lie within Wendy Young   What does it mean to rest in Awareness? We often feel disconnected: from what’s actually going on in our body-mind, disconnected from our authentic feelings and disconnected from Life.

In silence we discover our Greater identity. The…
