Workshops + Mini Retreats

Workshops and Mini Retreats are open to anyone with an interest in the topics offered.

Day One of the Mini Retreats will be practiced mainly in Noble Silence which means we will refrain from speaking unless necessary. The silence will support the quieting and softening of the thinking mind, and open the heart into a more tender and experiential place of residing and knowing.

Being silent allows the practice to be embodied and in the bones of your being more fully. Day Two will introduce practical and accessible applications of what you experienced during the practice day. From experience knowledge, authenticity and genuine empathy is gained. From direct experience, creative applications and integration is cultivated.

There will be times for questions and some discussion, and there is an opportunity to check in with the teacher at all times if need be.
