Teacher: David Gardner
Cost: 2 days accommodation +R400 surcharge
Dates: Friday 17 May 2024 - Sunday 19 May 2024

Heavy is the root of light,
Stillness is the master of movement.
Who can by stillness, little by little
make what is troubled grow clear?
Who can by movement, little by little
make what is still grow quick?
To follow the Way
is not to need fulfilment.
Unfulfilled, one may live on
needing no renewal - Lao Tzu, Tao Te Ching (interpretation by Ursula K. Le Guin)

Dave will lead sitting meditation in the Zendo, as well as walking and moving meditation in the inspiring and nourishing sanctuary of space that the BRC offers. He will also facilitate intentional open discussions around the fire to stoke the wholesome sparks of enquiry and deep listening. Whether you are a beginner or committed practitioner, this process will empower you to cultivate presence, clarity, adaptability, creativity and patience. The retreat will be held in an atmosphere of noble silence and introspection.
