Teacher: Sue Cooper
Cost: 3 days' accommodation + R. 250 surcharge
Dates: Thursday 27 October 2016 - Sunday 30 October 2016

sue-cooper-2014This 3 day retreat (starting on Thursday 27 October) will be held in a contained and nurturing atmosphere of Noble Silence. The practice of meditation, informed by the deep wisdom of Buddhist psychology teaches us how to embrace life, rather than brace against it. As we move beyond our fear-based patterns of conditioning and opening our hearts through compassionate listening, we will discover that the possibility of freedom lies in the next breath. This silent retreat includes sitting and walking meditation; daily sessions of chi kung movement meditation to enhance the integration of body, heart and mind; and short individual sessions with Sue. There will also be time for restorative rest, as well as for silent walks in the beautiful gardens of the BRC. For those wanting to deepen this transformative process, this retreat will be followed by An Integrated Awakening retreat with Sue at Dharmagiri Insight Meditation Centre from 30 October to 5 November.
