RUSTIC RE-SET : 3 day nature immersive
AUG 2-4 (Fri-Sun), Retreat Center in Central MA
Try something different this summer! Disconnect from distractions and re-set circadian rhythm. Immerse yourself in nature to refresh the mind, reconnect with the earth, your self and community. This is a 3 day group retreat in a wooden lodge in the woods of central MA. We’ll focus on simple things- meditations, music, sharing circles, walks, swims, fires, writing and storytelling. We’ll balance time alone with time together.

The lodge is beautiful, lodgings are shared and simple and you can also choose to bring your own tent. You’ll actually be able to unplug without distractions – no electricity or running water, we use tealights and kerosene lamps in the evenings, draw mineral rich water from a hand pump and use an outhouse toilet. We’ll provide shared accommodations and 2 simple vegetarian, gluten free meals a day.

Open Meditation- being with what is
May-August 2017- Saturdays, 11am-12:00pm EST.
Zoom Link 
(If you arrive late, please mute yourself).

Now, wherever you are, you can join a simple centering Open Meditation practice every week.

Open Meditation is a practice in which we simply sit together in loving silence and explore the question “What is true for me now?” By doing so we allow and invite presence. We tap into our current experience, the sensations, feelings and thoughts that make up THIS moment, with friendly curiosity and acceptance.

I will guide the meditation lightly, allowing the group to cultivate a shared space of presence, self-awareness and conscious connection. We will close by sharing questions and our experiences. In this way, every meeting becomes a unique co-creation.

Group sessions celebrate an inward turn towards the fundamental dimension of being, alive in every one of us. No goal, no right way, nowhere to get and no method to get there. Simply being with what is, in present in conscious feeling and connection with self, others and all that is.

All are welcome, regardless of beliefs, history and experience with meditation.
STEP 1: INSTALL ZOOM on your computer if you don’t have it already.
STEP 2: CLICK THIS LINK and enter the passcode BWWI to connect.
