Yoga and Mindfulness Retreat – Compassionate Presence and Connection


The Yoga and Mindfulness Retreat will focus on cultivating compassionate presence and connection.
Immersed in the gentle beauty of Cambodia, your senses will become the doorway to connection and intimacy with your inner and outer worlds. 

You will -

       • Focus on mindful yoga as a path to insight and to opening the heart  
       • Explore a natural, easeful awareness of our experiences - body, thought, and emotions - with compassionate presence, discovering for ourselves a deeper sense of connection, and peace
       • Focus on growing in wisdom and love, and explore profound practices that nurture a resilient and vibrant well-being in our sometimes challenging world
       • Explore practices that invite balance of heart and mind, friendliness, and clarity, to set the conditions for wisdom and compassion to arise naturally
       • Practice ways of deepening the connection to all the parts of ourselves that can become overlooked in the distraction of our daily life 
       • Practice mindfulness of the heart and mind through yoga, meditation, walking, eating, breathing, resting and connecting.
