The first in a series of weekend retreats suitable for anyone interested in the practice of meditation as a way to develop fearlessness, confidence, openness, and gentleness towards ourselves and our world. An introduction or reintroduction to meditation and regular practice over a weekend is a very powerful way to strengthen your meditation and your motivation to develop a regular personal practice.

Through the simple, regular practice of sitting meditation, you learn to develop friendship with your mind, skill in how to work with speed and difficulty, and a sense of humour. Slowly you can let the mind relax within itself, and let go of struggling with yourself.

The weekend will include:

  • Detailed and regular meditation instruction
  • Periods of meditation practice
  • Individual support and advice
  • Talks on what we can discover through meditation
  • Opportunities to ask questions
  • Group discussion activities
The weekend is non-residential and will take place in The Yoga Sanctuary, Constantia. 
The retreat will be lead by visiting Shastri Brian Hilliard form Brussels. At 18 years old Brian Hilliard became a student of Chőgyam Trungpa Rinpoche. He completed the traditional Tibetan three-year retreat at Gampo Abbey in Nova Scotia. Shastri Brian teaches beginning and advanced students meditation for everyday life and Tibetan yoga.
