Slowing down, being silent and drawing inwards are vital for our mental and spiritual well-being. During this 1/2 day retreat we will put down our phones, computers and normal daily activities to be guided into a space of silence and inspiration.
We will combine our breath with the mental recitation of the mantra OM AH HUM, which is called the “Mantra of all Buddhas.” This special breathing meditation is extraordinarily beneficial. The retreat will provide a nourishing opportunity to go inwards, relax, and feel deeply connected to the potential for limitless peace and well-being that exists within each of us.
You can view this retreat as a gift you give both to yourself and to others because the time spent in meditation helps you create the space in your heart to be kinder, more patient and more compassionate towards others.
“We have to manage our time and energy in such a way that we can be of maximum benefit to others, and to do this effectively we need time alone to recover our strength, collect our thoughts and see things in perspective.”
