Retreat: Mandala of the elements ~ freeing hindrances, realising potential
Aug 2 – Aug 7 all-day

6 day retreat – 3 day option available. Mandala work is an enriching experience that is accessible to everyone. We will be using artwork and mindfulness meditation to explore the part the 5 elements play in our lives – identify core questions – gain insight – meet potential - release energy previously caught up in difficult or unhelpful patterns. The retreat includes exploring Tibetan methods of transmuting hindrances into wisdoms. Mandala is deep work, it often challenges us to greater clarity, and it can also be engaging & fun. More info here.
