A Taste of Freedom on the Sacred Mountain with Sue Cooper

Date 26 Apr 2017 - 01 May 2017

Cost of event : R 0.00

Venue and address : Dharmagiri Insight Meditation Centre, Underberg

Held in contemplative silence, this retreat draws inspiration from the wisdom of Buddhist psychology and the support of the sacred Mvoleni mountain. Through the cultivation of meditation practices that will nurture and ground us, we will discover ways to free ourselves from our habitual, fear-based patterns of thinking and behaving. When we embrace our humanness with kind and compassionate awareness, we can move beyond fear, shame and the curse of perfectionism, to discover that the possibility of freedom lies in the next breath!

This silent retreat includes sitting and walking meditations, daily sessions of Qigong movement meditation, as well as time for yoga and mindful walks to enhance the integration of body, heart, and mind. There will be short, individual sessions with Sue, as well as time for restorative rest.

Cost: R2700.00 - R2950.00 plus Dana for teacher & managers

The Zen of Recovery. Twelve Steps to wholeness and well-being

Date 28 Apr 2017 - 01 May 2017

Cost of event : R 0.00

Venue and address : Buddhist Retreat Centre, Ixopo

Teacher: Warren Shaw and Graeme Buchart

Cost: 3 days’ accommodation + R250 surcharge

Dates: Friday 28 April 2017 - Monday 01 May 2017 


The lessons that Zen and Recovery teach are no different from what we have suspected all along. When we respond to the call of the Steps of Zen, we are really answering our own cry for help. We don’t need to believe in the Steps, but we do need to have faith in our basic goodness and wisdom. This interpretation of The Twelve Steps conforms to the Mahayana Buddhist tradition of making the rescue vehicle large enough for everyone to define their own “Higher Power”. Just like Recovery, Zen does not seek to convert anyone, only to help in alleviating suffering. People of other philosophies, or none at all, will benefit from this look at Recovery and the Steps through the eyes of Zen - presenting a fresh understanding of what it takes to be rehabilitated from addictions - using Zen as a tool.

Being Our Own Best Friend In This Crazy World

Date 05 May 2017 - 07 May 2017

Cost of event : R 0.00

Venue and address : Buddhist Retreat Centre, Ixopo

Teacher: Chandasara

Cost: 2 days’ accommodation + R. 150 surcharge

Dates: Friday 05 May 2017 - Sunday 07 May 2017 


This will be a silent meditation retreat focussing on the  relationship we have 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 suggest ways of how we can restore ourselves into a more natural state of ease and well-being. During the retreat, there will be periods of sitting and walking meditation, morning and evening talks, and opportunities for dialogue and discussion.

Sacred Drumming. Exploring natural rhythms

Date 12 May 2017 - 14 May 2017

Cost of event : R 0.00

Venue and address : Buddhist Retreat Centre, Ixopo

Teacher: Richard Ellis and Marc Kress

Cost: 2 days’ accommodation + R250 surcharge

Dates: Friday 12 May 2017 - Sunday 14 May 2017 


Drumming and music-making are ancient ways of transcending one’s routine lifestyle, opening ourselves to spiritual realms of healing and creativity, which is experienced as liberating and rejuvenating. The whole universe is a continuous flux of pulsating rhythms. Drumming connects us to these rhythms, facilitating a change in consciousness that leads to a sense of unity and well-being, which promotes deep relaxation and healing. In this retreat we will be learning basic drumming techniques and exploring rhythmic creativity which will be combined with meditation practice and contemplation.
