Open to all, these retreats are suitable for both beginners and those with more experience, but no previous experience is assumed. All these retreats include introductory meditation teaching and periods of silence.
We all have what we call dominant selves and selves that have been disowned. This imbalance in us is the cause of much confusion, distress and even illness. Through meditation, Voice Dialogue and Focusing we will explore these inner selves, bringing much understanding of who we are and how we function, and beginning to take back control over our lives.
