May 31 – June 3, 2019 || Deepening Awareness: Four Day Silent Retreat || Krishnamurti / Swanwick Centre, Vancouver Island
“Retreat is not set apart from life, but is a deep plunge into the nature of existence” - Adyashanti
At a certain point in life, there is a stirring within to stop running and to dive deep into all that we are. Something calls us to connect to our center and witness our capacity for wisdom, stillness and openness. Even the slightest curiosity towards transformation through silence should not be ignored. More than ever, our world needs more beings that are clear, aware and connected to deep presence. More than ever our taxed nervous systems and depleted adrenals need to be filled by simply turning the focus within, and listening for all the insights.
Join Carolyn for this unique 4-day opportunity to press pause on the noise of daily life and wake up to the workings of the mind, heart and body. On retreat, we will engage in restorative & hatha yoga, seated & walking meditations, journalling & self-inquiry, and many periods of noble silence. Our time together will also include feeding the body with wholesome vegetarian meals and feeding the mind with daily lectures related to un-learning our conditioned beliefs with gentleness. Gift yourself with any extra rest or nature time you deem necessary…
Our home for the weekend will be at the oceanfront Swanwick Centre (Krishnamurti Educational Centre of Cda) near Victoria, BC. This beautiful property is just a 40 minute drive from the Swartz Bay Ferry Terminal on Vancouver Island. More on the property HERE.
