Finding Calm in Turbulent Times
A Silent Meditation Retreat
With Hedwig Bakker
Daily life situations: our workplace, our family situation, the place we live, the world at large can be unpredictable, challenging, changing and uncertain. This can be a source for anxiety, worry, stress, uncertainty, feeling groundless, low energy, discomfort, and many difficult emotions.
How can we keep it together during a storm?
How can we stay inwardly grounded and balanced during times of inner and outer chaos?
How can our hearts remain open during difficult times?
During this weekend we will explore different practices to ground ourselves, bring the mind home, come to a place of inner calm and ease in our bodies and balance our emotions.
What to expect:
-Sessions of sitting meditation, walking meditation and gentle movement
-Experience that whatever is going on, there is always a place of inner calm & stillness
-Bring home a toolkit of practices that you can apply in day to day life when things get rough, so that you can ride the waves of life confidently, skilfully, and remain balanced.
