July 14-16. Meet your inner peace retreat

Join Katya Pemberton and Dina Ostrovsky for a healing and rejuvenating retreat where we will slow down, take time for ourselves and experience the benefits that meditation, breath, and gentle movement of Qigong have to offer.

We will explore the complementary wisdom of Tibetan and Chinese traditional practices.

Katya will share contemplative techniques from Tibetan Buddhism, guiding us to release into presence and oneness with the nature of mind. We will employ visualization, breathing and abiding in pristine awareness that comes from ancient Buddhist Tantra.

Our Qigong sessions led by Dina will help your body enter a state of deep relaxation and openness, establishing the foundation for meditation.

Enveloped by Nature, we will walk along the forest paths and amongst the river, and, weather permitting, will have a bonfire under the night skies. All level practitioners are welcome.
