MOVING FORWARD WITH MYANMAR

A military coup has overthrown the democratically elected government of Myanmar – the root of our lineage and Buddhist practice. Please check out the initial campaign we are running to help educate and gather momentum of goodness around the world to begin the process of inspiring change.

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.
