Still Mountain, Flowing Water: Living Your True Nature

Date 23 Nov 2017 - 27 Nov 2017

Cost of event : R 550.00

Venue and address : Dharmagiri Sacred Mountain Retreat Centre

 
The retreat program aims to take you on a journey deep inside leading to relaxation, restoration, and renewal. No need to be or do anything special and free to experience whatever is present for you. We will use the theme of the seasons to explore processes of cyclical change in our lives: times of moving inwards into the silence and stillness where we learn to trust the unknown and find our inner compass there; and times of moving outwards into the flow of acting on our conscious intentions. We will explore these processes of change through meditation, mindfulness and exercises inside and outside where we connect with ourselves, each other, and nature, deepening awareness, healing, transformation and alignment with our deepest desires. The weekend will be held in silence apart from the times of sharing together as a group. 

Cost: R450.00 to R550.00 per person per day & Dana for teachers & staff.

Communication, A Path to Understanding. with Ajahn Sukhacitto & Janet Surrey

Date 06 Dec 2017 - 10 Dec 2017

Cost of event : R 0.00

Venue and address : Dharmagiri Insight Meditation Centre, Underberg

This retreat will introduce the meditation guidelines of Insight Dialogue and offer an opportunity to explore the possibilities of a fully engaged co-meditation practice. We will explore the origins of suffering as well as the great potential of cultivating together  the factors of awakening, including mindfulness, concentration, equanimity, loving kindness and compassion.  We will investigate Speaking and Listening as meditative practices held and nourished by the deep foundation of silent practice. There will be periods of silent practice, alternating with meditation together in dyads, triads and small groups.

The Buddha described spiritual friendship as the "whole of the holy life."  In this retreat we will contemplate the qualities and power of our fundamental human relationality and investigate our capacity for cultivating spiritual friendship in the service of awakening together on the Noble Eightfold Path.

Venue and address : Dharmagiri Insight Meditation Centre, Underberg

At this special time of year we celebrate joy, peace, wisdom, and compassion as the essence of pure, loving presence and relationship. This retreat will draw from practices and teachings from the Buddhist tradition as well as ancient and contemporary teachings of awakening that enable us to let go of the strivings and entanglements that obscure these natural qualities of awareness in ourselves and others so that they may become more manifest in our lives and world. The retreat, held in contemplative silence with some interactive inquiry, will be a safe and supportive space in which we can relax the body, open the heart, and release the mind through guided meditations and exercises, dharma talks & qigong.

Cost: R450.00 to R550.00 per person per day & Dana for teachers & managers

Reclaim Health & Well Being: Mindfulness & Regulation of the Nervous System with Nobantu Mpotulo & Solwazi Johnson

Date 29 Dec 2017 - 02 Jan 2018

Cost of event : R 0.00

Venue and address : Dharmagiri Insight Meditation Centre, Underberg

The times we live in are so intense that the pressure of a world spinning out of control often activates patterns of trauma, psychological wounds, reactivity and stress. Caught in cycles of dysregulation, with our nervous system overly stimulated and negativity impacting our physical, emotional and spiritual well-being, we land up turning to unhealthy and addictive habits to try and manage the overwhelm. 
During this retreat, held in contemplative silence, we take the time to pause in a kind, safe, and supportive space so we can explore healing modalities through the practice of mindfulness, insight meditation, and inquiry. We will also delve deeply into a wide range of ancient and contemporary body-based self-regulation practices which support/ enhance resilience and strengthens our ability to cope with stress, change and uncertainty. The retreat will enable us to engage our lives and the world around with increased clarity.

New Years Day Community Gathering - Sweat Lodge

Date 01 Jan 2018 - 01 Jan 2018

Cost of event : R 400.00

Venue and address : Sacred Journeys

PIPE CEREMONY DETAILS…
We begin at NOON (SHARP) with a Sacred Medicine Pipe Ceremony and guided Personal Ceremony to clear out the old and make space to welcome in the new.

 

HEART EXCHANGE...
You are requested to offer a Donation from your Heart as an exchange equal to what you receive from this Circle.
A Heart Exchange, similar to the Buddhist concept of Dhana comes from giving what you can give, no more or less.
Giving in this way communicates the message that you are present, aware and committed to your journey.
The universe cannot help but respond in support to this kind of give-away.

 

SWEAT LODGE DETAILS...
For thousands of years, indigenous people have been using the Sweat Lodge on a regular basis to cleanse & purify, rejuvenate & maintain their health & wellbeing on all levels.
Our annual New Year’s Day Sweat Lodge is like a powerful reset button. We clear away the debris of the year gone by so we can align yet again to our deeper meaning & purpose, set realistic intentions as we laugh, celebrate & enjoy the coming year

 

HEART EXCHANGE…
R 400 per person plus Feast Food
As you will find in many cultures and traditions, Feasting is a sharing of food in celebration of a memorable event or rite of passage. We traditionally bring our Gatherings to completion by sharing Feast Food in celebration of the rebirth we have each experienced. We each bring a plate of food that has been created with love and prepared with care, this feeds the spirit as well as the body. Bringing this kind of food to our feast is like a communal Heart Gift that we can share with our brothers and sisters.

 

THIS IS A POPULAR GATHERING AND SPACE IS LIMITED. CONTACT US TO BOOK ASAP.

Being Our Own Best Friend with Chandasara

Date 05 Jan 2018 - 07 Jan 2018

Cost of event : R 550.00

Venue and address : Dharmagiri Insight Meditation Centre, Underberg

KThis will be a silent meditation retreat focusing on the theme of our relationship with ourselves: what does “being our own best friend” really mean?  Can we be steady and at ease simply being who we are without needing to be particularly special or better or worse than anyone else?  Can we similarly be at peace with others who are different to us without being critical and judgmental? We will explore these questions using insights from both psychology and the Buddha’s teachings on what keeps us trapped in cycles of negativity and how we can restore ourselves to a more natural state of ease and wellbeing. During the retreat there will be periods of sitting and walking meditation, morning and evening talks, and opportunities for dialogue and discussion.

 

Cost: R450.00 to R550.00 per person per day & Dana for teachers & managers
