REGISTRATION AND PAYMENT IN ADVANCE REQUIRED TO RESERVE A SPACE IN THIS RETREAT. SEE DETAILS BELOW.
This day is a wonderful opportunity for practitioners of all faiths to discover the joys of meditation and how it can enrich spiritual practice in your personal belief system. The teachings Kushok shares on this day are secular in nature and offer the foundation for developing your own meditation practice. Learn how to focus the mind and analyze your thoughts. During the morning’s session, Kushok will discuss how to live a mindful life. In the life, we’ll learn how to manage stress.
Skilled teacher Kari Stange will also offer a yoga practice so we may stretch and move mindfully. Yoga will be in the morning and afternoon – feel free to meditate, reflect or walk the beautiful grounds of the Providence Centre if you prefer.
Spend time in the beautiful park-like setting of the Providence Centre applying the teachings in both sitting and walking meditation. Throughout the day there are several opportunities to ask Kushok questions about your practice and obtain further guidance.
The teachings and practices occur in the tranquil setting of the Providence Renewal Centre (3005-119 Street). Situated on 20 acres in the heart of the city, Providence Renewal Centre has hosted spiritual events from a variety of traditions for over 30 years. The centre has lovely indoor and outdoor spaces and much of our meditation time will be spent outdoors (weather permitting), enjoying the beautiful gardens, labyrinth, and walking paths.
Anyone with an interest in meditation is welcome to attend this course. No prior knowledge about or practice of meditation is required.
