with Dawn MacDonald, MSW, RSW Certified MSC Teacher & Jonathan Austman, Ashtanga Yoga Teacher
MARCH 24–29, 2019
Location: St. Benedict’s Retreat Centre, 225 Masters Ave., West St. Paul, Manitoba
In this five-day retreat, we will explore mindfulness meditation as a foundational practice to compassion. Mindfulness is the awareness that arises when we pay attention, in the present moment, in a tender and disciplined manner. This retreat will offer beginners and experienced meditators silent periods of sitting and walking meditation, mindful yoga, as well as group and individual teacher interviews. Teachers will also offer daily talks and meditation instructions.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
This intensive training is open to all. It is designed for members of the general public and professionals who wish to deepen their mindfulness meditation practice in a community. Previous meditation experience, while not required, is recommended.
