Week 1 (March 11-17) Yvonne & Rik
THEME: Self Practice & Self Compassion
The first part of the retreat will be offered in silent practice, allowing us to turn inward. We are then able to find space that moves us into the heart of compassion and fuller awakening into our inner wisdom. Moving away from self suffering towards a deeper worldly compassionate consciousness.
- Daily meditation with Rik and Yvonne
- 1st Week is conducted in reflective silence
- Periods of sitting, walking, & gentle movement
- Daily Dharma Reflections
- Group Support Periods
Week 2 (March 18-24) Rik & Kayleigh
THEME: Awakening Conscious & Connection w/Community
The 2nd part of the retreat will expand our awareness in opening into a richer connection of community. We’ll explore the physical connection within our bodies so that we may go beyond the contracted self and open our conscious awareness that connects us to others and the ecology of our planet.
- Daily Yoga with Kayleigh & Meditation with Rik
- Outreach collaboration with the local community and nature in the afternoons
- Evenings offer opportunities of group circle practices & heart opening exercises
