The intention of this retreat is to be with nature and the beautiful environment that Taruna has to offer. It gives us the opportunity to drop in to silence, let go and connect with ourselves in presence, with our breath and our body.
This time of being with ourselves gives us the opportunity to notice our patterns and our tendencies to judge, feel discomfort, restlessness and connect to those thoughts and emotions that limit our lives. However, it also gives us space to open to our awareness and deepen our experience to the compassion joy and love that we hold in our hearts.
This practice helps us to become more intimate with ourselves, and helps us let go of harmful perceptions that restrict and define our lives, allowing to connect with the authentic relationship with ourselves, presence and life.
The retreat will comprise of sitting and walking meditations and open space for self-reflection and discussion.
The retreat is suitable for people new to meditation and more experienced practitioners.
