One-Day Insight Meditation Retreat
Sunday June 11th 2023 - Oxford Falls, NSW
with Renata Malinauskas and Aggi Badtke
“Insight is any way of looking that releases craving.”
― Rob Burbea
This one-day meditation retreat is an opportunity to reconnect with your true nature using the body as a vehicle for awakening and freedom. Meditation offers a means to become more present in our lives and more aware of what's happening in our experience. By slowing down, finding calm and tranquillity, we can develop more insight and a greater ability to meet the ups and downs of life. Becoming more embodied helps us rest in a reliable place of inner ground and ease.
Take time to connect with…
- Your meditation practice... through guided practices and alternating sitting/ walking meditation
