Event description

Description

This weekend residential retreat with ENSO teacher Sharon Tashi Davison is an invitation to come home to yourself: to come home and look more deeply into your own life and experience for well-being and self-understanding through the practices of mindfulness and meditation. Grounded in the MBSR (mindfulness based stress reduction) program from the Centre for Mindfulness in Medicine, Health Care, and Society at the University of Massachusetts Medical School, it will inform and include practice in meditation, mindful reflection, and awareness of the body, through group and individual activity with time to relax in private setting overlooking beautiful Okanagan Lake. Personal time is available.

As an antidote to the fullness and busyness of our day to day lives, and because our attention is being grabbed by constant stimulation and noise, the retreat will be silent expect during class time, where you are welcome to ask questions and instruction will be provided. Past participants to Sharon's retreats have found them life enriching experiences, many returning again and again for a seasonal reboot. Meals are Vegetarian. Space is limited. Register early. Whether new to mindfulness and meditation, or looking to deepen a practice, we all can benefit when we bring our own kind attention home to ourselves.

*What is Dana? Teachers teaching by dana do so freely so that anyone, no matter their financial means can attend classes. Each time one receives teachings, it is an opportunity to consciously practice generosity. Giving money and other means of support, expresses gratitude and support to the teacher and helps to ensure that these teachings continue. Each person receiving teachings determines the kind and amount of Dāna/Generous donation that they will give. A suggested general amount is $20-40 per day, however one gives according to ones heart and one's financial means. When deciding how much to offer one should think about what these teachings mean to you and try to give accordingly. It is recommended that an offering of dāna is made at the beginning of a class or retreat which establishes the intention to make the most of this opportunity. One can give additionally if they choose.
