Pause and catch your breath by joining us for a one-day experiential meditation retreat with Kushok which you can access and experience from the comfort of your own home. 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.
Kushok will also offer breathing yoga as it strengthens the flow of breath and energy channels. He wishes to offer this so participants may better cope with the mental and physical strain related to Covid 19. Indeed Western science is catching up to what Eastern philosophy has known for some time. Scientific evidence now indicates that breathing yoga reduces anxiety and stress, and improves mood and quality of life. Breathing yoga is also known to improve the health of the heart and lungs. It is also known to improve immunity. The retreat thus offers the many benefits of meditation and yoga and you don’t even have to leave your home to participate!
The teachings and practices will be offered virtually. You can meditate, learn, contemplate, and expand/learn a yoga breathing practice in the ease and comforts of home.
Anyone with an interest in meditation is welcome to attend this course. No prior knowledge about or practice of meditation is required. Open to all faiths and beliefs.
