Description

“In the midst of winter, I found there was, within me, an invincible summer. And that makes me happy. For it says that no matter how hard the world pushes against me, within me, there’s something stronger – something better, pushing right back.” - Albert Camus

It’s dark and it’s cold...winter can feel like a long season. Bring light to the winter blues by accessing a calmer and happier state of mind. Mindfulness can help you get in touch with this essential part of you – your “invincible summer!”

Learn meditation practices, breathing techniques, and visualizations that will heighten your positivity, increase your energy, and renew your motivation.

In this retreat you will learn how to:

• Stay focused on the positive
• Cultivate a calm and relaxed state
• Respond well under pressure
• Recover quickly from difficult conditions and emotions
• Sustain and maintain motivation

What is Dana?
Teachers give the teachings of awakening (Dharma) 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 Dharma teachings determines the kind and amount of Dāna according to one’s 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 students make an offering of dāna at the beginning of a class or retreat to establish the intention to make the most of this opportunity for one’s own progression and for the benefit of all others.
