Seven Day Mindfulness, Meditation and Yoga Retreat June 2019

7 day Mindfulness, Meditation and Yoga Retreat

Spend seven days at Gymea Eco Retreat in the Byron Bay Hinterland from June 28th to July 4th 2019 immersing yourself in meditation, mindfulness and movement.

This retreat is lead by Cassie Thomas (yoga teacher), Venerable Shih Jingang (Buddhist Priest of the Nien-Fo Ch’an Order of Monks) and Jessica Maguire (mindfulness meditation and Pilates teacher).

Parts of this retreat will be spent in noble silence to allow a full immersion into the teachings.

Embodied movement

The body is a pathway to healing. We will blend the art and science of:

  • yoga
  • pilates
  • mindful movement
  • walking meditation
  • restorative practices for deep relaxation
  • connective tissue release work

Mindfulness and Meditation

Insight meditation retreats give us the opportunity to see clearly the reactions and distortions that arise in our daily life and to cultivate an awareness of the freedom and clarity that is available in each precious moment.

Insight meditation techniques and mindfulness allows us to cultivate a greater understanding and deeper wisdom.

Those meditators with an established practice can look more deeply into the meditative process itself and bring more ease and acceptance into their sittings.

This retreat welcomes men and women 18 years and older, regardless of meditation, yoga and Pilates experience.
