Don’t Just Do Something. Sit there! 2022 – CANCELLED
Friday 2nd 5pm – Sunday 4th September 2pm
Unfortunately this retreat has had to be cancelled. People who registered will receive a full refund.
Want to learn to meditate? Perhaps you have tried and need some more skills and extra encouragement? Or possibly, you already meditate and wish to develop your practice and drop into a full weekend of meditation. If so, then this weekend retreat will support you to explore this.
The retreat will predominantly be silent and offers you the opportunity to learn, strengthen and enliven your individual practice of breathing meditation. Alongside this there will be opportunities for sharing and questions as well as time for individual practice; including space to enjoy just ‘being’ at the Wangapeka Centre – a very beautiful environment.
This is the sixth year that this popular retreat – ‘Don’t just Do something! Sit there!’ – has run at Wangapeka.
Duncan and Mark have both facilitated meditation retreats and workshops individually and collaboratively. Both have an extensive background in meditation and retreat work and have studied closely with their teachers (specifically Ven. Namgyal Rinpoche, Bonni Ross, Tarchin Hearn and Cecile Kwiat).
They incorporate teaching approaches which gently encourage each member to touch into their own inherent wisdom with friendliness, kindness and humour. Mark and Duncan are also contributors to the Nelson-based vibrant dharmasphere collective. To find out more see dharmasphere.org.nz
