5-Day Spring Retreat

Led by Sharda Rogell and Erin Taylor.

In the still pool of retreat silence there is the possibility of seeing ourselves more clearly. Shining the light of awareness into our body, heart and mind can reveal our essential goodness, innocence and love, and also show us layers of physical and emotional tension and pain.

This retreat will offer meditation practices and teachings which support present moment, embodied awareness and cultivate our capacity for meeting and transforming suffering.

Along with periods of sitting and walking meditation, there will be opportunities to participate in chi gong and other activities which help to deeply relax mind and body so that we may know our heart and mind, often dulled by over-thinking, with greater vividness and subtlety. These practices allow us to connect with a profound sense of well-being, pointing the way to our true home.

We will offer dharma talks and group and individual meetings and there will also be periods of open, self-guided practice.

Sharda Rogell has been practising and teaching Buddhist Insight Meditation for over 35 years and is on the Teacher Council at Spirit Rock Meditation Centre in California. She has received teachings in many spiritual traditions including Dzogchen and in the Diamond Heart School for the past 14 years.

Erin Taylor teaches meditation with Original Nature Insight Meditation based in Wellington. She often teaches chi gong alongside meditation as a way of deepening and grounding spiritual practice.

Registration cost: Earlybird if paid before Oct 1.
Dana: participants will be invited to offer dana for the teachings
