What makes this retreat special for us:

- Weave intimacy with nature
- Express joy and connection through chanting and meditation
- Participate in rituals that deepen awareness and make potent the capacity for wholesome change
- Find our real teacher (who is closer than we might think)
Why is belonging our theme?
We are observing that for many fragmentation, chronic busyness and disconnection are common experiences in modern life. Something has to change both for ourselves and the world.
Do you hunger for community, connectedness and confidence?
Belonging is living in a state of inclusive love. It is to be patient, attentive, willing to question and able to participate well with life in all its offerings and changes. This is our (at times) forgotten natural state. A sense of belonging is the hallmark of a maturing human being functioning well in community.
We invite you to give yourself the time to find this wholeness and full aliveness so that we can communicate and relate from a place of clarity.
How the week will unfold?
Daily Open floor practices will nourish your understanding and capacity to be mindful because it lands you firmly in your body, using music to activate and settle feelings and emotions.
We are going to explore and deepen anapanasati, developing our awareness through breathing.
We will practice together connecting with our ancestors, living ecology and sources of inspiration.
We will have moments of solitude and community sharing.
