Meditation and Yoga Retreat with Patrick Glennan
April 1, 2016 - April 4, 2016
“What is most essential is the practice of Dhyana, meditative mindfulness, which enables us to experience the Absolute Purity of our deepest nature and to hold that transpersonal truth in the complexity of our personal lives.”
Zen Master Jun Po Denis Kelly
The offerings of yoga are multiple and varied, from the purely physical to the spiritually transcendent.
At the most basic level it aims to help us understand, balance and integrate all the different parts of ourselves so that we may live more happily and fully as human beings. Being healthy is an important part of this. As such, yoga starts with us as individuals, as we work tangibly to improve our physical, mental and emotional wellbeing. The asanas (postures), breathing techniques and meditation practices are great tools in this regard, with often surprising and quite immediate benefits.
