SIM very happy to welcome Sharda Rogell via Zoom for a half day retreat with us at the Mary Potter in Christchurch. We will gather together and Di (who has taught 9 day retreats with Sharda over the last couple of years at Te Moata) will be the onsite teacher as we “beam” Sharda in.
Sharda has taught day long retreats with us for many years. We had to cancel last year’s retreat with her as our borders were closing at that time. We are delighted to welcome her here this year via Zoom.
Riding the Wave of Aliveness
After more than a year of the global pandemic as well as many other
challenging issues we are currently facing, most of us have felt our
heart strings pulled in many directions. In this half day silent retreat, we
will explore how our dharma practice helps to keep us buoyant,
propelling us to make wise choices for ourselves and others as we meet
our experience just as it is. We will inquire together into the nature of
selflessness as the key to wise action, as we free ourselves from
polarizing views that get projected inwardly and outwardly.
During our time together, there will be sitting and walking meditations,
dharma talks and time for group discussion about our practice, as well
as time for sangha connection.
All are welcome.
