Times of great change challenge us to find our center in the midst of seeming chaos. The spiritual practice of finding peace right where you are, in the midst of any situation, has been the prescription of master teachers through the ages.
This day-long retreat will provide you with an experience of discovering the peace within you. It will be both a nourishing introduction to meditation, and an opportunity for those with an established practice to settle even more deeply. Anyone interested in the healing benefits of relaxation is encouraged to attend. You will learn meditation practices that enable you to re-discover the peace within in any situation throughout your day. Practices including:
- Establishing an intention of peace within and in the world
- Music and chanting
- Silent meditation
- Movement techniques
- Compassion and Loving-Kindness
