Description

Awakening Peace Through Presence

A Daylong Meditation Retreat

Teacher: Dawn Mauricio
Location: Yoga de l'éveil, 4847 Park Ave, Montreal, QC H2V 4E7

The most telling place where the quality of our practice speaks most clearly is not in the exciting mental tricks on the cushion, but rather in the way we live our lives. Just as the poses of a yoga class are linked together by the breath, so are our actions in life linked together by our intention and presence.

In this daylong, we will explore how when we slow down, what gets revealed is how our mind functions and our heart responds. We will slowly develop the skills of letting go to provide a platform to contemplate what it means to be a human being, so that, from this place, skillful action can be chosen.

This retreat will be taught in English. Questions and comments in both French and English are welcome and encouraged. Open to both beginner and experienced practitioners. Places are limited.

What to bring: blanket, meditation cushion or stool, water bottle and lunch. Chairs available.

Cost: sliding scale $25 (students/low income/ unemployed)-$35-$45 plus dana (donation) to the teacher. True North Insight aims to offer rates accessible to everyone. Our payment scale allows retreatants to pay according to their financial means.

Cancellations: Please let me know as soon as you can should you need to cancel. It is possible to receive a refund up to 48 hours before the start of the retreat.

Please plan to arrive early. Doors will be open as of 9:30am.
