Harvesting Happiness: a silent retreat to expand the heart
For centuries, silent retreat has played a vital role in almost every spiritual path. Silent retreat provides a refuge away from our cell phones, traffic, and the various roles we are required to play in our family and professional lives. Extended silence allows us to enter deeply into the present moment, revealing the deeper truths the lie underneath the distraction. Join Stephanie Nosco this August at the beautiful Quantum Leaps Lodge in Golden BC, for a week of silence, Qigong, meditation and Yin and Yang Yoga. The theme for this retreat will be the Buddha’s Four Immeasurables, the qualities that cultivate an intrinsic sense of happiness and wellbeing. Each day you will be guided through two yoga or Qigong sessions per day, as well as guided meditations on the themes of equanimity, kindness, compassion and empathetic joy. Your tuition also includes your accommodation (of your choice) three delicious organic meals per day, and plenty of silent reflection time amidst the beautiful Canadian rocky mountains.
Social silence will be held from Friday night to Tuesday before lunch.
