New, old, and current interested students of mindfulness and compassion meditation are invited to join together online for a day of cultivating tranquility, ease, equanimity and kindness for self, others and the world. The theme for this retreat will be listening in to the profound wisdom of the wise inner compassionate mind, cultivating qualities of compassionate mind, and reflecting on what this means for re-definition of self as we move from the separated and conceptualized self to the inter-connected and dynamic self-as-process.
If you have never taken the deep dive into extended periods of silence, or meditation practice “together apart” with an online community, this is a wonderful opportunity to join in a space facilitated by Dr Kimberly Sogge C.Psych. a clinical health psychologist who is also an experienced meditation teacher (International Mindfulness Teachers Association Certified Mindfulness Teacher – Professional; Senior Certified Mindful Self Compassion Teacher with the Center for Mindful Self Compassion/University of Southern California – San Diego; Spirit Rock Mindfulness Yoga and Meditation Teacher training program).
Join us at this beautiful location surrounded by nature, find a cosy, safe location in which to cultivate silence in your own home, in a beautiful place in nature, or in a sanctuary of another kind, and join us for a day of online meditation practice in community. The pandemic is taking a toll on many of us; take this time of limited external travel to launch an adventure within.
