RETREATS


Whatever you are doing ask yourself this one thing,
does this path have a heart?

Taking a little time to immerse ourselves more deeply in our practice, and to find the heart in our daily lives is vitally important on our journey towards wholeness, healing, and realisation. 

MEDITATION, TEACHINGS, JOURNALING, TRANSFORMATION
