LIBRE: Mindfulness et la conscience libéré

La pratique de la Mindfulness est surtout orientée vers la liberation de la conscience, une comprehension au delà de la conceptuelle, et une profonde guérison des anciens schemas. La conscience libéré est telle qui peut accueillir, explorer et vivre toute experience sans compulsion, sans contraction, sans confusion.

Mindful eating

Mindful eating

Unless you are a hunter-gatherer or sustenance farmer, we have all become ever more disconnected from our food in recent years. Many of us don’t even consider where a meal comes from beyond the supermarket packaging. This is a loss, because eating offers an incredible opportunity to connect us more deeply to the natural world, the elements and to each other.

Yoga and Meditation

Gail Aylward and Martin Aylward

This retreat will interweave the practices of meditation with mindful movement and yoga practice, all as supports for insight, awakening, and freeing ourselves from habitual patterns. The retreat will include 2 periods of mindful movement each day along with silent and guided meditations, and meetings with the teachers. The movement practices are designed to greatly enhance the sensitivity and steadiness of mind in attending deeply to moment-to-moment experience, and to be integrative in bringing awareness and inquiry into all moments and activities of life.

Mindfulness et Sagesse: One vision vaste d’une pratique illimité

with Martin Aylward

28 October – 3 November, 2018

La pratique de la mindfulness est souvent présentée comme un moyen d’entraîner l’attention, de calmer le mental et de gérer le stress. Ces outils importants et libérateurs peuvent néanmoins se considérer dans une vision plus vaste de la pratique et la possibilité d’aller bien au-delà d’un bien-être conventionnel.
