Retreat closure and reflection

Contemplative practices are taught traditionally away from our everyday living.

Here you'll have the chance to calm the surface, enough to see what lies beneath.

 

The purpose of retreat is to take a good hard look at ourselves through soft loving eyes.  We do this by sharpening our mental swords and firming our commitment.

 

Here you'll learn the art and science of mindfulness, but mostly, you'll learn about yourself. A softer version of traditional retreats taught in silence over a number of weeks.

 

Our first retreat to Minjerribah, North Stradbroke Island was in 2012 and we've been back each Spring and Autumn since. We've been warmly received by the locals who attend daily workshops and we've been personally welcomed by the Quandamooka elders.

Participants say:

"Instead of being pushed and shoved by life, I'm more capable in my direction, I'm the central player"

"My breathing has changed from anxious, tight and shallow to deep and relaxed... a real change of life"

"Perfect challenge, personal attention and relevance to my life."

We acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and work.  The Turrbal and Yuggara people of Maiwar, The Quandamooka people of Minjerribah, the Bunjalung people to the south, Waka Waka and Gubi Gubi to the north, Burrangum to the west, and particularly to the Gammilray people who have shared deep knowledgeand lore.  We acknowledge sovereignty has not yet been ceded and we stand with you in reconciliation.
