Event description

Description

This four-day silent retreat, located in the beautiful Hockley Valley in Ontario, will introduce newer meditators to a meditation practice that is gentle and open from the outset, as well as support experienced meditators in developing more compassion and empathy for their inner world and experience.

Where most forms of mindfulness focus on the breath and other bodily sensations, emotion-focused mindfulness therapy (EFM-T) emphasizes mindfulness of embodied emotional experiencing. Rather than feeling better, the emphasis is on getting better at feeling, so that our feelings help us better navigate our lives.

Meditation sittings will range from 20 to 40 minutes long, with time for journaling after each meditation. Bill will be giving two daily talks, with two discussion periods each day. There will be daily opportunities for sharing and exploring your medtation experiences in small groups led by Bill and other teachers, as well as opportunities for retreatants to speak individually with a teacher about their meditation practice.

The retreat cost includes your room, meals, and the teacher’s fees. Our retreat centre is located in the beautiful area of Hockley Valley near Mono, Ontario, which is known for its forested rolling hills and many streams and creeks. The retreat includes delicious organic and locally sourced meals and exclusive access to all retreat amenities such as a pool for swimming, labyrinth for walking meditation, open fields and fruit trees, beautiful hiking trails and the Bruce trail, and nightly campfire circles. The sound of trickling water from streams and ponds can be heard throughout our retreat centre including from several bedrooms and our meditation hall.

Retreatants have the option to attend daily yoga classes taught by certified yoga teachers.

Our retreat organization team provides a warm and personalized approach throughout the retreat registration process right up to and including your on-site meditation retreat experience. We will work with the chef to meet your food restriction and allergy needs and arrange transportation and other supports for you to ensure the most beneficial meditation experience for our retreatants.
