Wake Up Sydney Retreat: Walk With Us
March 23, 2018 - March 25, 2018
“Spiritual friendship is not half of the spiritual life, it is the entire spiritual life!” -The Buddha
To unite with like-minded friends to learn about the teachings of the Buddha and practise meditation together: This is what the Buddha hinted at, in his above exhortation to his faithful student Ananda. With this very teaching in mind, we invite you to walk with us as we travel to Wentworth Falls for the 2018 Wake Up Retreat. You are invited to engage with the practice and feel energised and nourished by the support and encouragement of the collective group. You will have the opportunity to learn from monastics of the Plum Village tradition as we will have three monastics from Blue Cliff Monastery, New York, to guide us. We will learn to sit, walk, and eat in mindfulness. We will gain inspiration as to how we can bring clarity, peace and stillness into our daily lives.
From Blue Cliff, New York to the Blue Mountains, New South Wales, this is a unique time for synergy with nature, and the cultivation of mindful energy that we will create when we come together with the authentic wish for the transformation of our own lives and indeed that of our wider community.
Location: 50 Railway Parade, Wentworth Falls, NSW
Duration: 5pm Friday the 23rd to 3pm Sunday the 25th
Retreat fee: $200 (+ donations are warmly welcomed)
