2021 Summer Retreat

Summer Retreat:  Finding the Heart of Wisdom

Teacher:  Jill Shepherd

This seven-day retreat will weave together a range of different insight meditation techniques to both strengthen the heart, and open the mind.

Building on a foundation of mindfulness and insight practice, we will cultivate the heart qualities of kindness, compassion, joy and equanimity, so that we can respond more wisely and compassionately to whatever life brings us.

Each day, there will be sessions of guided and silent sitting meditation, walking meditation, optional relational practice, individual meetings with the teacher and a period of optional, gentle mindful movement.

Experience level: This retreat open to beginners as well as to those with more experience.

Time and dates. Saturday 23 January (5pm)  –Saturday 30 January 2021 (2 pm)
