NeLi has spent collectively more than one year in silent meditation practice on retreat, Victor, well over two years. We know the terrain of the inner life intimately. We’re honoured to facilitate this exploration for you…
Silence is an opportunity to listen, open, come home to yourself, and find yourself intimately connected to everything!!
With a warm heart, NeLi and Victor will offer teachings and practices from the Buddhist Western Insight tradition.
In this retreat you’ll have the opportunity to experiment with different approaches to meditation. You’ll have the freedom to use an approach you’re familiar with, or try something new; to develop trust and confidence in your own unfolding practice.
Silence will support our deep rest and self-nurturing.
This retreat is an invitation to explore the ways we view the world.
Venue: the Theosophical Society Retreat Centre at Springbrook, Gold Coast hinterland. Everyone gets a small room to themselves. There are walking tracks through the rainforest at the centre and the lounge and dining area has a big wood heater.
Exercise / movement / yoga: There will be periods scheduled for movement and yoga, both guided and unguided.
Food: Vegetarian food will be provided and a number of special dietary needs can be catered for.
Work period: There will be a work period of 30 to 45 minutes to help with keeping costs down and also to help with keeping the venue clean.
Dana: In keeping with an Insight Meditation and Theravada tradition, teachers offer the teachings as a gift and receive no payment for this. At the end of the retreat there’ll be a box for offerings to the teachers and this dana will be gratefully received. Dana not only supports the teachers for the time they spend but makes future events of this kind possible. More on Dana.
