Doorways to Stillness Celebration Retreat

Sep 27 - 30, 2018


Retreat Description

Experience many doorways to a still mind and open heart. Deepen your experience of peace that meditation and self-reflection bring. Practicing together, our doorway each morning is through prayer, breathing (prāṇāyāma), extended and various meditation periods, focused movement (āsana), and inspirational readings. Each afternoon, we enter the doorway to self-reflection through forest walks, meditation theory and practice, and artistic self-expression. All levels of experience are welcome.
