Open to all, these retreats are suitable for both beginners and those with more experience, but no previous experience is assumed. All these retreats include introductory meditation teaching and periods of silence.
Are you keen to speak freely and be fully heard? Be confident with conflict and honest without offending? We’ll learn to listen beneath the words, understand the gems in judgement, dissolve blame, find empathy for 'enemies'. When we're alive to our deeper values, compassion flows naturally. Combines communication input with meditation, mindful movement, simple ritual, silence and fun. Open to regular meditators and newcomers.
