Life As It Is 2022 – A Community Family Retreat

Needs a location

**Life As It Is 2022 – A Community Family Retreat**
*A community retreat- families and children welcome*

Friday October 7th (arrive after 2pm, dinner at 6pm) to Tuesday October 11th (2pm).

N.B. There is also a weekend option.

As human beings, we have a unique opportunity to investigate the comings and goings that make up the human experience. In the midst of our lives just as they are, this interest and exploration is always available to us- however difficult or easeful that may seem!.
Living in this way creates the possibility of opening to, and surfing all that arises, and inviting an open, inclusive and caring way of being, for the benefit of many.
Join us for 4 days as we practice as a community exploring the Buddha’s teaching on the Four Foundations of Mindfulness.
There will be time for group and individual meditation practice, periods of silence and child-focused activities.
Please note: there is an option to stay for just the weekend (Friday to Sunday).
