"Healing Our Hearts" retreat
December 9 - 11, 2011
The practice of mindfulness helps us to be fully present and to touch the wonders of life within and around us: the sunshine, the autumn leaves, the pebbles, the smile of a child. Looking at the blue sky, we take one deep breath and touch its immensity, solidity and freedom. This is very nourishing. It would be a pity if we did not know how to benefit from the refreshing and healing elements available to us and allowed ourselves to be overwhelmed by feelings of anger, sorrow and despair. In this retreat, through the practice of conscious breathing, we will have an opportunity to stop, rest and get in touch with our inherent capacity for healing and renewal that we usually take for granted in our busy lives.
