Life as It Is 2020 – A Family Friendly Community Retreat
May 15 @ 5:00 pm – May 17 @ 2:00 pm
A community practice weekend for everyone. All ages, family and community welcome.
15 – 17 May 2020
Come and join us for a warm community weekend of mindful practice and exploration where we will explore together how we grow a sense of support, connectedness, curiosity and kindness no matter what is happening in our lives- at work, at school or at home.
By simply exploring the thread of presence together, with a focus on the shared learning we find in community, we can experience contentment and enrichment in our ordinary spiritual lives.
This weekend provides space for family practice, adult practice as well as children-focused sessions. The rhythm for the weekend will include a morning gathering to practice together, guided meditation, forest walks, times for sharing and conversation, short periods of silent eating, and inclusive games.
The course is facilitated by Louise Petzold, Karen Harley and Glenn Harley. They are experienced practitioners who have been connected with the Wangapeka Study and Retreat Centre (and each other) for many years.
Costs include all food, accommodation, cooks fee and a small resource fee. Facilitators are offering the course on the basis of dana / koha.
Non members $188
We try to keep our costs as low and encourage as many people as possible to attend. If you require support with costs, the Wangapeka has a Sangha Support Fund to assist with accommodation costs for adults and children. Please contact the caretaker to apply: firstname.lastname@example.org
