Life as It Is! – a Family Friendly Community Retreat
Come up and join us for a warm community weekend of mindfulness for adults and children. We will explore some of the joys and challenges of walking a spiritual path in the midst of family life. Most of us are practitioners of meditation and Dharma in our “householder” lives. So let’s support each other to strengthen and share our Dharma practice and discoveries with things as they are in our lives.
This weekend provides space for family practice, adult practice as well as children-focused sessions. The rhythm for the weekend will include a morning gathering to practice together, family friendly forest walks, times for sharing and conversation, short periods of silent eating, and inclusive games.
By simply exploring the thread of presence together, with a focus on the shared learning we find in community, we can experience contentment and enrichment in our ordinary spiritual lives.
Everybody is welcome to attend this weekend.
The course is facilitated by a core group of experienced practitioners who have been connected with the Wangapeka Study and Retreat Centre (and each other) for many years.
Costs include all food, accommodation, cooks fee and a small resource fee. Facilitators are offering the course on the basis of dana / koha.
