urban retreat | SAT 18 march
WITH Kevin Thomson
Making space in your life for relaxation, growth and successful relationships.
Sometimes it feels as if modern life is so crowded and so busy it leaves little or no space to be ourself, let alone to grow and become a better person. On this mini retreat learn how to create inner space through meditation – a space in which we can find inner peace and relaxation and in which we can work on improving ourself and being there for others. This is a space we can carry with us all the time, giving us flexibility and choice in our interactions with others, and agility in dealing with life’s difficulties.
“By training in meditation, we create an inner space and clarity that enables us to control our mind regardless of the external circumstances.”
