Deepening Your Meditation Retreat
A truly unique opportunity to experience the deep natural peace and clarity of profound meditation.
Based upon the book Meditation – an In-Depth Guide, this immersion is highly suited to people who have already have some meditation and power of mind experience and would like to explore the depth, breadth and healing potential of the practice.
The focus of this retreat will be on practising together. The guided practice sessions will be of medium intensity, running mostly in 40 minute blocks, and will be interspersed with teaching sessions, question and discussion sessions, walking meditations, noble silence, optional yoga and Feldenkrais, as well as time for personal reflection and rest.
In the daily teaching session, Ian will explain techniques that help us to go beyond engagement with the busy, active mind.
Learn, practise and experience the heart of meditation and the bliss and contentment that comes with mindfulness and deep peace. Break through into a deeper level of relaxation and clarity of mind.
This program has been designed for anyone who would like to explore deeper states of meditation, and takes into account that many attendees will have experienced Ian and Ruth’s teachings previously. It is also well suited to health professionals.
Certificates of attendance can be provided.
