This week @ Beaches + Beaches Sangha Retreat + Beginner's Workshop

Hi all.

This week @ Beaches Sangha we have Sylvie sharing a podcast on self compassion. So bring your yoga mats, cushions etc. again, to make yourselves comfy as we listen to that. A discussion will follow as usual.

We also have a couple of events you may be interested in:

Beaches Sangha Retreat
We will be having our very own 3 day retreat from Thu 28 April to Sun 1 May at Gorrick's Run (Zen Centre property) near St. Albans. The retreat is open to regular Sangha members and is an unusual one in that it's self led (there won't be structured teachings or teachers). 

Participants can either bring their camping gear and camp in the cleared area around the meditation hall, lay a swag on the deck of the meditation hall (which is covered), or there are a few indoor sleeping spaces/ mattresses/ beds available. 

The property is rustic but lovely. It has fire-powered hot showers, drop toilets, a well equipped kitchen and a beautiful meditation hall surrounded by bushland. It's about a 2.5 hr drive. It will be self catered - we'll finalise those arrangements once we know how many people are coming. The cost is $90 per person for the 3 days. 

If you'd like to come, please let me or Sylvie know by the end of March.

Weekend workshop - 
I'll be running a weekend workshop on 14/15 May that offers an overview of both meditation and the Buddha's teachings. It is suitable for beginners and also for those who've had some experience with the teachings but would like to get a sense of how it hangs together. We'll also try a number of different approaches to meditation. 

It will be at our normal venue and will run from 10am-4pm both days. I'm just ironing out the remaining details at the moment, but if you're interested or know someone who might be, please put the date aside or pass along this info. I'll let you know further details and when and how to enrol shortly.

Hope to see you Thursday.
