Still Mountain, Flowing Water: Living Your True Nature With Chandasara & Sietske @ Dharmagiri Sacred Mountain Retreat Drakensberg
Nov 23 @ 7:30 am – Nov 27 @ 9:30 am
Still Mountain, Flowing Water: Living Your True Nature With Chandasara & Sietske @ Dharmagiri Sacred Mountain Retreat Drakensberg | KZN | South Africa

The retreat program aims to take you on a journey deep inside leading to relaxation, restoration, and renewal. No need to be or do anything special. Be free to experience whatever is present for you. We will use the theme of the seasons to explore processes of cyclical change in our lives: times of moving inwards into the silence and stillness where we learn to trust the unknown and find our inner compass there; and times of moving outwards into the flow of acting on our conscious intentions. We will explore these processes of change through meditation, mindfulness and exercises inside and outside where we connect with ourselves, each other, and nature, deepening awareness, healing, transformation and alignment with our deepest desires. The weekend will be held in silence apart from the times of sharing together as a group.

Insight Dialogue with Ajahn Sukhacitto & Janet Surrey @ Dharmagiri Insight Meditation Centre
Dec 6 – Dec 10 all-day
Insight Dialogue with Ajahn Sukhacitto & Janet Surrey @ Dharmagiri Insight Meditation Centre | Underberg | KwaZulu-Natal | South Africa

This retreat will introduce the meditation guidelines of Insight Dialogue and offer an opportunity to explore the possibilities of a fully engaged co-meditation practice. We will explore the origins of suffering as well as the great potential of cultivating together  the factors of awakening, including mindfulness, concentration, equanimity, loving kindness and compassion.  We will investigate Speaking and Listening as meditative practices held and nourished by the deep foundation of silent practice. There will be periods of silent practice, alternating with meditation together in dyads, triads and small groups.

The Buddha described spiritual friendship as the “whole of the holy life.”  In this retreat we will contemplate the qualities and power of our fundamental human rationality and investigate our capacity for cultivating spiritual friendship in the service of awakening together on the Noble Eightfold Path.

Cost: R2150.00 to R2550.00 plus Dana to teachers & managers
