About the Event
We have been through a profoundly confusing global experience of isolation and interconnectedness. How do we make sense of this time, and open to its transformative potential? Can we find ways to reconnect at a deeper and more authentic level with both our outer and inner world. Perhaps this is the moment to ask:
- What do I want to stay in touch with?
- What do I want to be free from?
- What would I like to invite in?
Join Caitlin and Lucy for a weekend of inner practices that bring us safely home to the best of ourselves. It’s not always clear what we can DO with everything changing so fast, yet we can focus our attention on how to BE.
When we take time away from daily concerns, in a supportive community, shifts inevitably happen. Join us in this exquisite Clarens venue, where you can reconnect with the beauty of the natural world, as well as your own essential goodness. Through yoga, moving and sitting meditation, we’ll honour the changes that have been taking place within and around us, and learn to navigate the way forward. We’ll leave with a new commitment to some daily practices that can shift the relationship with ourselves, each other and our world.
