Embodied Wisdom and Compassion Retreat with Subhana Barzaghi, Lizzie Turnbull and Shirsha Marie
Dates: Friday 1st to Thursday 7th October 2021 Location: Online
The Buddha said, that within this fathom long body lies the answers to the universe. The body keeps the score, it is a library, a research station for exploration and foundation for insight, it is an ancient treasure map if we are willing to listen. The body is a lion of courage, a temple for our practice, a crucible for transformation. By cultivating a mindful, embodied, compassionate presence we can release stress, untangle those knots of tension and find nourishment, replenishment and grounding. 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 online schedule includes: sitting & walking meditation, meditation instructions, open inquiry sessions, Dharma talks, two daily Qigong classes. Retreat is suitable for beginners and experienced meditators.
One-on-one meditation tutoring offered to suit individual needs. Suitable for those interested in learning the foundations of insight meditation, or those who would appreciate an outside perspective on their current practice.
