RETREAT SCHEDULE

Please note: This is a guide and may be modified during the retreat. Periodically, there may be a check-in with the teachers.

 

The conscious embodiment practices (Yoga and Qi Gong) are very gentle exercises.  They are designed as meditative, relaxing movements, and they are not in any way harsh or aggressive. These practices help assist the meditation and are meditative in their own practice.

'The last retreat was exquisite. I am a big fan of Len and his gift of being a genuinely loving human being! His deep and broad knowledge of meditation practices from across multiple spiritual domains bring a supportive space that encourages me to find comfort in choosing my path of existence. Inevitably, I always leave Len's events feeling connected, more aware of what I don’t know and a smile on my face remembering not to take myself too seriously.'
