1 Day Only: Self Compassion through guided meditation and periods of silence
Oct 10, 2020
THIS RETREAT WILL BE HELD VIRTUALLY VIA ZOOM!
Compassion is the quivering of the heart in the face of our own and others suffering. This “Ultimate medicine” has not only the desire, but the ability to heal and transform our human difficulties. As we cultivate this heart quality a sense of resiliency arises that is unshakable despite inner and outer conditions. To embody this powerful energy is our birthright.
This daylong is an intensive compassion retreat will be lead by Senior Mindfulness Facilitator Heather Prete. We will explore Universal and Self Compassion through guided meditation as well as periods of silence. Please wear comfortable clothing and bring a sack lunch (preferably vegetarian if possible) as we will eat in mindfulness as a group.
