Please Note: This retreat is offered online only. We invite you to try this creative form of practice as we take care of one another and respond skillfully to COVID-19.


Description:
On this retreat you could be meditating in your garden, on your deck or in a safe space in nature, practicing of course social distancing. We will learn that we can practice meditation in nature anywhere, even while looking out a window at skies, clouds, birds and sunlight and receive the power of nature’s blessing.

As we practice alone, but together, we will explore potent practices that open the heart and mind to insight, intimacy, and interconnection with all life. We will learn from nature’s wisdom teachings of transience, interdependence, and letting go. We will also see how nature evokes profound peace and calm as well as beautiful qualities of joy, wonder, and love—qualities so essential in these stressful pandemic times.

This retreat will weave together periods of guided sitting and walking meditation and mindful movement.

All are welcome! No one will be turned away for lack of funds as space allows. For more information, please email Registration@spiritrock.org.
