MOVING FORWARD WITH MYANMAR

7 Day Self Retreat with Steven Smith @ online
Oct 15 – Oct 21 all-day

This 7-day supported self-retreat will be run via Zoom. This course is designed for Steven and co-teacher Darine to support yogis to do a retreat at home, with as much participation in a silent container as they can-given their particular home circumstances. The request is that yogis shift from their daily life schedule to a home retreat. The expectation is that yogis participate in the guided sittings, interviews, Dharma talks and as much of a home meditation retreat schedule as they can.

For experienced yogis who can follow a full-time schedule:
6am to 12pm – 6 hour mindfulness block
Yogis can make their own schedule around instructions, guiding sittings and talk.
