Spacious Mind Fearless Heart Retreat with Jeremy Logan & Kanya Stewart

Sep 18, 2019Sep 22, 2019

A four-day Insight Meditation Retreat with Jeremy Logan, assisted by Kanya Stewart.

The practices of Insight Meditation support our inherent capacity to awaken to wisdom and an openheartedness that is already here.  In recognising our own suffering, we recognise our interconnectedness and see that our personal welfare and happiness is intimately interwoven with the wellbeing of all.  In these challenging times, deep inner ‘work’  supports the capacity to engage in the transformation of our inner and outer worlds while remaining steady and balanced.

This retreat is suitable for both those new to meditation and those with experience. The programme will include sitting and walking meditation, evening talks, instruction and time for discussion.

About the teachers:

Jeremy Logan has studied and practised insight meditation for the past twenty-seven years and has been teaching retreats throughout New Zealand since 1993. He lives in the Wairarapa and works as a counsellor, supervisor and facilitator of change programmes.

Kanya Stewart is a Yoga and Meditation teacher living In New Plymouth, with 32 years of practice and teaching.
