Non-SIM Events Coming up in 2020 ----- Awakening the Call to Connect - Finding Nourishment and Strength in the Face of Great Uncertainty with Subhana Barzaghi, Carol Perry and Shirsha Marie Dates: 18 - 23 Sept, 2020 Location: Sangsurya, Byron Bay
These are indeed difficult times with frequent extreme weather, immense injustice, ecological crises and the Coronavirus pandemic. By cultivating the ancient Buddhist practices of mindfulness and compassion along with Qigong movement practices we can find nourishment, replenishment and grounding. These practices support us to honour our heartbreak and transform fear, despair and anger into a steady heart and wise action. To advocate for the flourishing of life each one of us must return again and again to the ground of our own aliveness. As we cultivate a regenerative culture within we can move toward a life-sustaining community and society. The retreat offers an ideal opportunity for established meditators to deepen their practice and for those new to meditation to experience a valuable but gentle introduction to silent meditation & the Dharma teachings in a welcoming, supportive environment.
