QiGong Workshop June 11

Half-Day of practice on Saturday June 11 doing mindful movement and contemplating some Rumi Poems with Jim Dalton. For instance:

If you want to change the ways others treat you, you should first change the way you treat yourself, fully and sincerely, there is no way you can be loved.

Once you achieve that stage, however, be thankful for every thorn that others might throw at you.

October Hollyhock Retreat with Robert

Oct 2-7 - Hollyhock, BC, Canada.

Be fully alive. Let go of anxiety, self-criticism, depression, fear, and loneliness. You are not your moods, racing mind, compulsions, addictions or wounds from the past. Awaken to the love, compassion and joy that are your natural state.

Allow meditation to bring vibrancy, enthusiasm, connection, humour and awareness to every aspect of your life.

Fall Breitenbush Retreat with Robert

Oct 30 - Nov 4

Mindfulness (Vipassana) meditation is the art of being fully alive. On this silent retreat we will be mindful of every activity, from sitting in the meditation hall, to walking in the ancient forest, to bathing in the hot springs. You will go home with practices that will change your life. Suitable for beginning and experienced meditators.

QiGong and Rumi with Jim

You are invited to a Half-Day of practice doing mindful movement and contemplating some Rumi Poems. For instance:

"Inside the Great Mystery that is,
we don't really own anything.
What is this competition we feel then,
before we go, one at a time, through the same gate?"

~Rumi (tr. Moyne and Barks)
