RETREAT DESCRIPTION:

Pause and catch your breath by joining us for a one-day experiential meditation retreat with Kushok at the beautiful Providence Centre. This retreat is fantastic for both new and experienced meditators and is open to people of all faiths. Learn through Kushok’s skillful instruction how to meditate, how to work with your emotions in meditation, and how to take your practice deeper if you already have an established practice. Discover the joys of meditation and how it can enrich your life. Throughout the day there are several opportunities to ask Kushok questions about your practice and obtain further guidance.  You can also participate in gentle yoga with experienced teacher Kari Stange if you wish!
